I've recently installed a transmission fluid temp gauge on my '99 250
LD/5.4/3.73 and just got back from a little trip (400 miles)to the interior
of B.C.(lots of hillclimb)with my 5th +/- 6000#s.

Around town (no load) the gauge is a steady 140 F; on the
freeway(w/5th)-140-180F; on the longest/steepest climbs (twice) it hit
nearly 240F (5-10 minutes each time with ambiant temp 75-80F travelling in
2nd 30mph). At no time did the engine temperature rise above normal.

I checked the fluid before/after and there was no discernable change in
color end of trip. (The 4R100 really does a great job adapting to the
heavier load demands (ie. longer shifts, etc.)).

I was told that when temp reaches 260-290F to back off.

The Owners Manual says that a normal (unloaded) temp range is 150-180F. I
have a tranny cooler.
Should I be concerned?

Bye-the-bye: I have a Windsor 5.4 with what I suspect is the infamous
'slap'. ie. rattling noise immediately after cold (several hours) start and,
unless I let it to warm-up sufficiently, very audible valve-train noise upon
acceleration (30-60 sec.). Once warm it runs smooth and quietly. I have not
approached the dealer as yet as I have 2 years of warranty (and Extended)
remaining, but continue to follow the thread on this web-site (thanx!)

Thanx/Cheers!

Scott
