Just wondering what the normal trans temp is for a 05?

Also, what is the hottest it should go?


thanks

I think 210 is as hot as you wanna go and mine is around 160ish while cruising on the freeway. I dunno, I never look at my guages...not sure why I have them. lol

Mine runs around 150 in the winter empty and 165 in the summer empty. The highest I have ever seen mine was 180 while towing my RV in the summer over the Smoky Mountains. What is your running at?

Normal is about 165F. The TorqShift has a thermostat that reduces the flow to the cooler by about 90% when the trans is cooler than 165F.

The maximum sustained temperature is 220F. For less than 30 minutes the maximum temperature is 250F.
