Just thought I would pass this on. The life span of a transmission at certain operating temperatures.

Good info. Measuring transmission temp is one of the hottest topics on the diesel truck forums I visit.

No problem, I am trying to collect more info on issues like this to pass on. It would be nice if this kind of stuff could be posted on the side of the main page of the forum under a special heading of some kind. I believe that knowledge is power, the more one knows the better off everyone is, I'll admit I am not the sharpest tool in the shad, but I have learn a lot from the members of this forum and has made me think twice.

Unfortunately the temp. gauge on our rig doesn't show actual degrees just that you are somewhere between C and H, thanks a lot Ford! For that reason and because I would like to know actual temperatures as well as fuel flow and such I am considering one of these for our rig:

I would like to have real time displays of what the OBD computer is gathering information on.

I like it a lot, but unfortunately it doesn't appear to support my vehicle. Maybe I'll give them a call and see if they plan a version that will.

My new truck has a D.I.C. system, Driver Information Center. At a push of a botton it will display transmission temp and other items, it will go into alarm if any thing go's out of a safe range. It's a great thing to have, maybe you can add this to your truck. I now have 2,200 miles on the truck and tow with it one time and on the warmest day the transmission temp was at 144 degrees and that was on a 3 hour drive.
