Lately, I've been monitoring my tranny temp. gauge & something doesn't seem right to me. According to my gauge, my tranny temp. doesn't run any higher than 150deg in 2WD, even on the L6 setting @ WOT. I mean, I'm not trying to overheat my tranny. I just want to know if this is normal for the truck & also if my gauge is working properly. The needle moves....but no more than 150 @ any rate.

7.3? 6.0?

Like said before... what is the outside temp? Where are you taking the temp from?
Are you asking me? The outside temp in RI is about 50deg. I'm taking the temp from the tranny port. I'm not sure I understand.:doh:

Mine runs at 150 just about all the time. Stop and go traffic, highway driving, just doesn't move too much. Though when it got up to 21°C yesterday it was at 165ish.

Trans service port = awesome.

I was asking what engine so I knew which trans you had.
I've got a 7.3 w/ 4R100. From all the info from everyone though, I figure my gauge is working correctly. I appreciate all the help!
