transmission getting hot

2002 Powerstroke 7.3 diesel, the transmission seems to be getting warm whenever you pull something. Any ideas? Just changed all the fluids and filter and did a flush.

Re: transmission getting hot

do you have the stock trans cooler on your truck, if so id recommend putting a 6.0L trans cooler on there makes a big difference when towing lower temps=transmission longevity. also are you monitoring your trans temp off of your gauge in ur cluster or on a separate gauge. normal operating temperature of transmission fluid is about 100 degrees over ambient temperature

also how much are you towing?

6.0 cooler is a must when towing often.

Under what driving conditions does it get to 220?

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.
