You can go up to 220F all day long with no problems. You can go as high as 250F for no more than a half hour at a time.

If you need to cool the trans find somewhere safe to stop and idle or fast idle in park or neutral until it cools. NEVER shut the engine off with the trans overheated. That will cook it.

Physical gauges are NOT more accurate. They read in a different location, so the readings will rarely be exactly the same.
