Trans Temps

Ok so I have never had a problem with trans temps but now I am towing with my truck and watching it all the time while driving. I have a 35' Bumper pull RV that weighs 10k and it was 28C or 82F for yall americans, and my temps were around 180F for most of the drive. I got a brand new tranny and Amsoil Synthetic in it. Stock cooler, and stock pan. Is this normal? And it also seems like I can hear my TC growling on takeoff is this normal?

Re: Trans Temps

You sure it is the TC and not your engine fan you hear growling? When my truck is warm the fan will engage and it is LOUD and growls. Stays on until about 40mph or the temps come down then disengages. As for temp, I hear 80-100 over ambiant is normal.

Re: Trans Temps

180 is nothing.... 210+ is where i would start worrying... if you can get a hand on a 6.0L trans cooler i would put that in place of the stocker.... here is a comparison of my stock trans cooler and the larger 6.0L i put in its place... i saw a 40 degree drop in my temps with it

Re: Trans Temps

what will drop the temps more the 6.0L cooler or a MagHytec deep pan? Does the 6.0 cooler just mount right up or do you have to make some changes?

it mounts directly in place of the stock unit.. but the inlets are a lil larger so you need to hit up a lowes or home depot and get the reduction fittings which is prob around 10 bucks tops.....

40 degrees is what this fellow said and after looking at the 2 of them I believe it. But 180 is nothing Mine runs that in stoplight traffic but with my trailer out on the road it's still around 180. I don't think you have anything to worry about
