Post Trans controller making tranny hot

I have a TCS controller and wondering if anyone uses this controller? I think I ahve something set wrong or pressure to high because my temps are high at times and in the AZ heat it can get to 200 pretty quick. I probbably need a trans pressure guage to set the tranny limits too.

Re: Trans controller making tranny hot

High preasures on the clutch's mean they wont slip and cause heat. Atleast thats what I always thought. Maybe there is a limit? Sounds like you could use an Atomic Cooler from Derale.

Re: Trans controller making tranny hot

maybe your converter is locking up properly. is this heat coming in stop and go traffic or highway driving?

Re: Trans controller making tranny hot

Stop and go traffic heats the tranny up, When I got my tranny controller I didn't have a pressure guage to set the initial settings. I have two coolers, and when I did have the 7.3 with the stock computer and chip it didn't get this hot even in AZ.

Re: Trans controller making tranny hot

The highest I've seen my temps go so far is about 185. Most of the time they are between 145-165. I've got the pressures set pretty high on my PCS and no temp problems. What speed are you locking up your tc?

Re: Trans controller making tranny hot

High line will definitly cause heat, plus cause damage to the pump!
Are you using the stock rad and does it have cooler lines running through it?
Are still running the bypass tube the side of trans.The bypass cannot
hold the presure of two coolers inline.

Glad to be apart of the new Powerstrokenation.

Re: Trans controller making tranny hot

So should I run the cooler in the rad or the aftermarket one?
