5r110 help

2006 6.0l.
I recently did a full flush, dealership said the I should run LV instead of SP fluid, so i went with the LV fluid, upgraded the pan and internal filter to the 08 style and changed the external filter. Everything seems fine other than the temp. I went from running 165°-175°f to 195°-210°f just driving around town.
Any advice?

Run the fluid the manual recommends or you will toast it.

Re: 5r110 help

LV is spec

SP is spec

your increase in temps may be if you removed the TP filter or did not get it in properly
it will bypass the coolers if it is missing or clogged

Re: 5r110 help

Removing the filter will let the fluid take the path of least resistance = not thru the coolers

did u use an OEM filter ?

I did use oem. Pan, internal filter and external filter are oem.
I just ran it without external (toilet paper) filter and the same tempts. 195-205 towing nothing.

Next step is gonna pull the lines from the cooler and blow them out with compressed air.

Re: 5r110 help

@mark_kovalsky or @matthewd11 on this one. Is there a chance your pump is schitting the bed? I hate auto trans' and I'm just throwing a dart on that idea but the two guys I mentioned are boss on the 5R

I have an 08 and an 09, the 09 has an 8" lift with 37's and with both trucks I tow HARD, like 30k+ all the time and temps never go above 180*..... on both trux I eliminated the external filter and have aftermarket pans/internal filters.

The LV fluid shouldn’t make the temp increase by itself . The LV fluid takes the place of the old SP. The Valvoline maxlife LV rated fluid is my top choice.

Have you verified the level is correct at full temperature? I would verify you have proper flow through both coolers. I use LV fluid in the units I build and don’t have temperature issues.

Are there any shifting concerns that you have with the LV or is temperature the only thing you’ve noticed? How is the converter lock up? Is the fluid aerated at all on the stick?

A pressure gauge may give you some answers. Do some line pressure tests and post them (idle all gears, cold and hot, and stall speed in R,D,3,2,1)

For S&Gs you can reset the adaptives or the KAM

Re: 5r110 help

you put the filter in like the picture ?

and as far as removing the filter for the test I have actually done flow test if you pull the filter the fluid will not ever travel thru either cooler
