A/4 Gto Trans Temp

Does anyone have a trans fluid temp gauge on their 04-06 GTOs with A/4 trans. I am curious as to what your temps are reading during normal driving.

THANKS

Thanks. I guess mine is OK. I have a 3600 RPM stall with a B&M cooler. It runs around 180 degrees

Thats good that you have a B&M cooler, number one killer of an auto is overheating the fluid.

I was told at a service class that every 10* you reduce the tranny temp, you double the life of the tranny.

I have been thinking about swaping out the stock fluid pan for one with a larger capacity and cooling fins
