04 Suburban - Transmission Overheating???
We recently bought a 19' Jayco travel trailer that we pull with our 2004 Chevy K2500 Suburban. The first few times we pulled it, the transmission temperature was reading around 190 to 200 F. We had the transmission flushed and now it stills runs around 180 to 190 F. Is this okay? Should I look at putting on an external cooler? Help.

Thanks for the info. The research I have completed thus far says to put the cooler in a spot with good air flow. The best spot I could think of is behind the radiator. Any thougths? Also after viewing your link, there were 3 different sizes to choose from. Should I just try and get the biggest one that will fit? Sorry for all the questions, but as you said, I want my transmission to last as long as I can. I had to change out the tranny on my '98 Chevy Silverado last year and kinda hit my pocket book.

Some tranny coolers come with fans, easier to find location. Watch the tranny temp & turn fan on as needed.Everyday I wake up is a great day! ;-)
