Ok I did a little checking on my way home from work today. I decided to watch my trans temp on the way home with nothing in tow. This is what it got up to

That may be a bad sensor. I ran about 192 pulling with 95 degree outside temp about a month ago. Otherwise, I'm well below 160.

Let it sit 24 hours. Then before starting, compare 3 temps.
1. Ambient air
2. Engine Coolant Temp.
3. Automatic Transmission Temp

They all should be within a few degrees Fahrenheit.

The highest mine has ever been is 197 and that was after jockeying into a tight site after driving for 2hrs on a 90 degree day.

Yeah...that seems much too high. I normally see about a ten degree increase through town at slower speeds but, after an hour or so of highway, back down in temp. I agree, let it get cold and compare all the temps.

Mine runs between 192 and 199 when towing.

Maybe someone addressed this already, but I'm wondering at what temp. does the transmission fluid begin to break down. Going over Wolf Creek Pass in Colorado I watched my fluid climb to 207 degrees and am wondering if I should go ahead and replace it? Normally runs about 160 on a hot day in Texas.

I think it was mentioned...over 270 ish if I'm remembering right. I was running up I45 out of Houston last year and my outside temp was showing 104. Trans actually got up to about 208. I believe there is a trans overheat light but it never came on. It felt like it was starting to slip a little so I pulled over and cooled it down. My rule has become change it if it goes over 200 for more than about 30 min. just to be on the safe side.

My truck is a 2014 I bought it when it had 400 miles on it. It has done this the whole time I have had it. Believe it or not that is about the same as when I row the camper. A guy at a KOA told me one day that it has a 195 degree thermostat in it and that is why. I have no idea my first GMC ever
