What is a safe transmission temperature?
Was towing a 3000 lb trailer up a nearby canyon today, and decided to monitor the auto transmission fluid temperature. It climbed steadily for the whole climb, reaching a peak of 208 degrees as I crested the summit. It was only 51 degrees outside, so I'm thinking the trans temp will be significantly higher later this summer when the outside temperatures are higher.
What is a safe transmission fluid temperature? What temperature are you seeing on your truck?
