Thread: tranny temp

  1. #1

    Cool tranny temp

    Hey guys awesome site! Im new too the forum but after reading some posts i think you can help. I just recently installed a super 44 flowmaster on my 04 2500 silverado, along with 2.5 inch tailpipes out the back with 4 inch tips. Iv noticed lately that my tranny temp gauge is hotter then its ever been but its not over heated ( red zone) . Could this be from the new exhaust? Thanks Jim!

    Hi Jim, I don't see how an exhaust system could raise your trans temp unless the pipes are just too close to the unit itself. Most of the heat from a transmission comes from the torque converter. Did you look at the installation? Were any heat shields removed? Are the pipes closer than they were before?
