Transmission fluid isn't red, but it's not black either. Reddish brownish color. Doesn't smell burnt. I run a large transmission cooler while also having a jumper wire and switch for the cooling fans that sits directly behind it. This is a mail delivery car, so I'm trying to keep my transmission fluid temperature in a decent area. Running this setup, it doesn't go over 180F according to the scanner. Without it, it was hitting 205-210F.
Anyways, once the car decides to go, it hits its gears perfectly. No matter how hard it softly I drive it, it shifts exactly as it should, when it should. I can drive it for hours and hours without issue. Today I logged over 240 miles in 8 hours of delivery driving. It was fine. You get the picture.
What am I looking at here? Simple fix? Mechanic in a bottle maybe? Or rebuild/reman the transmission?
have the same problem?
