Transmission too hot?
Posted 23 June 2004 - 11:33 PM
BUT heres something else now...my transmission light comes on every so often,(its an automatic) indicating the tranny is hot? generally it happnes if I drive on the highway with the rpms over 4, or up a steep long hill. it seems fine if I keep it below that. we had the transmission flushed and all that but still it keeps doing it. doesnt seem to be anything wrong with the transmission, and the mechanics I asked arent at all helpful!
should I be worried? Is there any one who has had this happen? any suggestions would be welcome!
(as with all our problems with the car this didnt happen until the engine seriously overheated and had to replaced...)

However, the problem is similar, change to a external tranny cooler, which is what im doing.
PS, mine is over 4 on the freeway too if im going faster than 68 mph.

an external cooler? whats that? and yeah it keeps your speed downto try to keep the car under 4 lol.
the owners manual says you dont need to stop the car just avoid hilly driving, doesnt really say how seriously you should take that kinda warning when your highway driving..
