| | th350 operating temperture debate, need advice
Having a debate with a friend of mine over the operating temperature of my th350. Currently I have two large external coolers mounted flat along the floor boards of my car, and on the hottest of days with lots of driving I am seeing ~160* fluid temperatures. On cooler fall days, I hardly notice the temperature gauge moving, so its about 100* give or take. These readings also depend on the accuracy of my temp gauge, and location of sensor which is after the coolers.
I have always heard that you want the transmission to be as cold as possible, while my friend says it should be at least operating in the engine temperature range.
Is any damage being done to the trany be running cold?
p.s. trany seems to be running fine so far.
