What should a normal tranny temp be for not towing anything with big tires on the highway?, BC yesterday we had unusually high temps it was 86 and when i was on the highway driving pretty much flat i looked at my trans temp and it was around 160*, is this normal?

Re: tranny temp?

60-100F above ambient temperature is normal.

I agree, those guages don't move much unless you're working the truck.

Re: tranny temp?

This past weekend I took the toyhauler out. Almost 13K, temps in low 90's and trans temps stayed around 180 and I was playing with it. The first time out with the Adrenaline and was gassin on it some. In stop & go especially with those tires 160 is OK.

Adrenaline made a huge diff btw.

Re: tranny temp?

When you replaced it did you replace or flush the cooler?

Re: tranny temp?

i put a new cooler on it rated for 40,000lb and did a tranny flush so i got all the bad fluid out. It shifts allot nicer now hopefully thats not a bad thing.
