Re: high temps HELP

It's just you. I think the rule of thumb is 80-100 over ambient. I took mine to town to get is washed cause I'm old & lazy. Temps in mid 90's @ 9am. Trans temps around 180-185 empty. But out on the frwy with my 13K trailer in od it runs about the same. On the steep (6%) grades in 3rd it will climb to 200 or so. Gonna put a trucool max on it next week. That should help when towing in this extreem temps here in Az. Stop & go will heat them up as quickly as towing a heavy trailer.

Re: high temps HELP

Don't know much about your truck. Fill in your signature with info on the truck.

I have an Early 99 that has the ota only cooler. Does not go through the rad. It works ok till I get in stop & go traffic with my 13K lb toyhauler then it will heat up. I added a trucool max today and it lowered my temps 30*. That was @ 9pm. I'm gonna try it out tomorrow, supposed to be around 110* but I think it's gonna work fine. I mounted it behind the cond just above the fact one. Ran through the fact cooler then through the trucool and back. I'll let you know how it does towing. Leaving Fri for a few days in the mtns. Where I go there are several 5-9 mile 6% pulls so it should be a good test.

The trucool is a lot cheaper than a 6.0 or V10. I got mine from Dieselsite $142 shipped. Price a 6.0 and decide which one you want. Good luck.
