Re: tranny temps

SO READING THIS

ENGINE INTERFACE



Acceptable full-load engine governed speed

2400-4000 rpm (diesel)
3200-4000 rpm (gasoline)



Minimum engine idle speed
(with transmission in drive)

500 rpm


Which I have seen reference to keep rpm's at 2400 for loads so tranny gets full line pressure....cruising at 1800/2000 is actually slipping more under load...correct?

I am rethinking this now and plan to try to keep the rpms up and see how that works, since tranny doesnt have lockup...hell the guy I got it from and the mechanic said when you pull out give it hell until you get upto speed...makes since now

Makes sense to me....... give her hell. Drive it like you stole it!!!
floor it at the bottom of the hill and don't let up until you reach the top .......... or all hell breaks loose!

So thats why that sticker is on the dash. ;)

Not with a lockup torque converter.

If your vehicle will maintain lockup in high gear and will not oscillate in and out of OD all the way up, the best thing to do is leave the shifter alone. Period.

There is less heat in the fluid, less shock to the drivetrain and the engine is right in its zone.

Whenever my DW ask about..

What are we going to do if we break down? I answer .......... Pull off to the side of the road, set up a mail box and plant some flowers.

Re: tranny temps

it's the little details that worry people

so right now I plan to add a couple electric fans to help out that big azz factory fan(so I don't have to rev it to keep air moving)
all heaters on high,drive a gear low and possible water mister system rigged up....If I spray motor with cleaner before the mountain,engine should be sparkly clean by the top

whatch the gages (maybe install aftermarket add ons I do'nt trust the factory ones,not enough sweep in them)
relax and pull over when hot and idle up to cool it off...woop 2 weeks to go gotta get busy

Re: tranny temps

Now you're thinking....... (and possible water mister system). Have seen these on several different vehicles....... If you can keep the engine cool, the trans will be cool also..... just how cool is that?

Re: tranny temps

Those temps seem a little high. I only reached those on long climbs coming back home. I picked up 4 gallons of Dextron at Walmart. Just going to drain and fill. When I hit the hills, I try to keep my rpms over 2000. I think the TC heats up more when you baby the throttle. Pure speculation on my part.
