I haven't towed with my new '13 yet. Driving solo I'm seeing transmission temps anywhere from 195 degrees F - 205 degrees F. On my '05 with a good Autometer trans temp gauge (see sig) I only saw temps like that when towing heavy on a VERY hot day. Is it normal to see these temps when driving solo? What can I expect when towing (+ or - 16,000#)? What would be considered "hot" for these transmissions?
I keep hearing about EGT indications. The only temps I can see on my productivity screen are oil temp and trans temp. Does anyone know how to pull up the EGT?
Thanks in advance for your help.
