Higher AT temp this summer; WTF?
Posted 02 September 2004 - 09:45 AM
This is my second summer I observe the AT temp but only 10k miles on the fluid. The ambient temps are the same, yet the AT temp I observe is ~20F higher this summer:
no towing: 185 vs 165
towing: 220 vs 200
AT never overheated, but 220F makes me uneasy.
Temps confirmed by IR reader. The car has only 50k miles. No change in shifting, no other problems. Fluid level normal.
Do I need to move to a larger cooler? ATF additives?
What is going on?

Are you measuring the AT temperature at the same place with the same gage?
The temp sensor is located in the same spot, on the ATF outflow tubing (for measuring max fluid temp). I confirmed with IR reader that the measumerents from the B&M AT temp guage are reasonably accurate.
