I called the Jeep dealer today and they said the normal warm weather trans temps are around 225 degrees. Sounds high to me. What is everyone else seeing?
NO, 225 is not to high, sometimes in phoenix mid summer out trans temps will even climb higher, (particularly when towing), but above 240 is for some concern.
Keep in mind, that they run synthetic oil, which will not break down below 250, but rather handles these high temperature very well. So the design is built into them for high ambient's, so it will not hurt them..........
