Trans Temp ?

I was just wondering, my automatic trans has been freshly rebuilt, nothing special, just went through new converter, and i my temp is running about 190 degrees running through town, kinda stop and go traffic, im not pulling anything or running my chip, its all in stock settings. The outside temp is 98 degrees and higher humidity. Is this normal or bad, im gonna get a tru-cooler in a couple of weeks to go on it.

Re: Trans Temp ?

thats not too bad, but i went with the 6.0 cooler and deep sump pan when i did my rebuild. with outside temp about 90-95* regular stop and go driving trans temp has yet to reach 160*. loaded or towing have not seen over 200* im sure when you are loaded or towing a load you will be well over 200 and thats not good for an extended period of time. not too sure how the tru cool compares to the 6.0 cooler, but i love how mine has made a huge differance in trans temp. hope this helps.

Re: Trans Temp ?

That temp is normal for an ambient air temp of 98. Trans temps should be 80-100 over outside air temps.

I would skip on the tru-cooler and get a 6.0 tranny cooler, in my opinion it is a much better cooler.

Re: Trans Temp ?
