I have a 2005 Ford F250 6.0, I recently had a deer hit to the front end. I just got the truck back from the body shop today and noticed that the trans temp gauge (aftermarket gauge) was reading hotter then normal. Normally it would stay between 140 to 160 normal driving. It is now getting up to 200+. I noticed that the trans filter close the the radiator was hot but the lines going to the cooler are cold and so is the cooler...I replaced the filter and that didn't do it...anyone have any ideas where to start looking for the problem

Thanks
Blake

That's really running hot. Are you getting your trans temp from the OBD port or do you have a sensor in the tranny? Id look for some sort of restriction in the flow. A bent line or something like that. Was the trans cooler damaged in the collision? I know I don't have to ask but I will anyway..... Got the proper fluid level?
