Tranny got up to 214 and I was concerned. Then I saw a couple of spikes to 225 that lasted for a minute or two - then back to 210. It has been very dusty driving conditions, hot ambient up to 93 degrees, and driving uphill. But the temps went back down to 210.

Maybe I need to get a hose and wash the radiators if it doesn't rain soon.

Guess I spoke too soon about tranny temps never going over 210.

I towed a very light ATC trailer (5400 empty) with a RZR in it, to El Paso and back. (750 miles on way, 90-100 degree temps)

on the way there, I saw 225-227 and on the way back towards Houston (trailer was EMPTY) at 70mph (speed limits are 80), I saw 215-220. Some sections I moved to 75mph, and saw 225-237 degrees.

I can't find anything that tells me that's normal, but the "gauge" was 3/4 the way to the right at 235+. never saw 240, but I've also never had a superduty where I saw the temp gauge climb like this one. Lol.

Just call me "foot in the mouth" guy. Yesterday going over Canadian Rockies the tranny it 245 degrees several times. It didn't stay long thank goodness. I read the owners manual looking for normal temperature range and there was no information.

Anybody know Ford's definition of "normal temperature?"

My 2017 F-350 super duty transmission has been running hotter than my 2012 when towing my 11000 lb fifth wheel. Coming up California 58 from Bakersfield to Tehachapi over the weekend, I saw 227 on the digital read out. Engine oil temp was about 230. I was down to 15 mph to try to keep a lid on the tranny temp. The analog tranny temp gauge never got into the out of range zone. I've seen 217 on other climbs. On flat terrain, no head wind, I see about 196 to 198 when towing the RV. I maintain about 63 mph in that situation. I don't know what my tranny temp is when I'm driving around town.

I'm seeing 190 to 205 around town. Towing is a different matter. I pull an 11K 5er, and uphill <=4% I see around 214. Steeper grades gets me up to 225 if somewhat sustained. Downhill, on steep grades using engine brake, I'm seeing 215 to 225 on medium long grades.
