I'm going to have to partially call BS on that one, lol. Without an external cooler, you're relying on the radiator for cooling but, even if you don't have an external trans cooler I have a hard time believing you're running that hot with those outside temps. If you are and you don't have one..definitely get a cooler. Cheap and easy insurance.

Well I looked at my outside temp it was 71 we did have a cool day in wv today and then I took the picture of my temp. The outside temp is on my radio display and I could not get it and the dashboard in the same pic. But I have no reason to lie about it. That is what it was. Sorry if I have taken you the wrong way but the picture speaks for itself

No, I wasn't calling you out. I don't doubt that's what it said, just that I don't think it's right. Then again, it may be. I'd definitely get a decent cooler for towing though. I've heard of people seeing 30+ degrees difference versus not having one.

With the outside temps near 100 + hear in Texas, my transmission temps will go between 198 and 203. My engine temp also goes up a few degrees. Normally, my engine temp runs around 210, regardless of outside temp. However, when towing in the real heat, 100 +, I have seen 215. On the engine temp gauge, there is nothing that indicates what is considered overheated. Does anyone know at what temperature an engine is considered overheated?
