NorthStar - it doesn't hurt to pull the pan and check how much friction plate material is sitting on magnets or other bad parts - also a good time to add bigger trans pan and new longer filter - also check for stuck bearing or wear - if you see wear around ball bearing holes - it's gonna burn up soon

Had a quick lube place blow up my tranny at 50,000 miles they put in a new one . it has a drain plug and i dump the fluid twice a yr . can only add a gallon at a time but helps keep it clean and now i have 3 tranny coolers on ,while towing it stays between 135 and 165 . 190 when pulling the long passes

Thanks PH!

It looks like my oil temp runs 80 to 90 degrees over ambient while pulling.

Yep the fastest way to blow a tranny is have it serviced and power flushed

If you don't have the special tools for the OD clutch housing, don't take it apart..... it has opposing lip seals and a feeler gauge WILL NOT compress them. If clutches for OD aren't burnt, it'll be okay. The 3/4 clutch mod is the fix....and Transco makes a nice sk. Sprag updates also good, as are electronics.

Everything is apart have press -- only thing I don't have is a washer so taking it to a local shop to have all parts jet cleaned $25 can't beat that -- yes replacing all electrics including harness

Ok, you're gonna have to explain this. Being a manual transmission guy for all my life, but considering going to an auto in my next truck (I may not have a choice,) so I need to hear why having your tranny serviced can make it "blow."

Play Harder, this statement prompts me to ask if you're a member of the forum on Denali Trucks . Some there could probably benefit from your expertise.
