Transmission Temperature too high?
Hey guys, Ive got a good question...
1995 Powerstroke, E4OD.
Before the Torque Converter Died on me over a month ago, my Tranny temp wouldn't climb higher than 150-160* F during normal driving, highway, and some in town.
The Day it died, it was around 180-190* F on a 32* F day
I got it rebuilt, Racer X rebuild kit with extra clutches, intermediate band, and a triple disk Torque Converter, along with a Trans Go Tugger kit, with pump mod.
Now, today, its 55-60* F outside, and I was driving it on some back roads, not real bad as far as hills and windy, and my Tranny Temp was around 190* F
Is that normal, or ok? I have probably only about 100-200 miles on the rebuild as of now, and REALLY dont wanna sink more cash into it if it breaks again.
I flushed the Cooler and lines as well before the trans was installed again.
All of the above driving, was Empty driving. Unladen weight of my truck is about 7000 lbs.
Any help is appreciated, I planned on putting a new cooler in sometime for more capacity.
