I had my trans service done by Mike L. at his shop, Inglewood Transmission. I asked about what I could to to prolong my trans as I'm running a 150 hp tune in my truck. He said the problem is the way the trans was designed is that it doesn't hold the line pressure due to being made to lessen all resistance to improve fuel economy, but he had a fix for that. He installed a dummy solenoid that would keep the line pressures up, but said that the trans would run a little bit warmer. My temps went up from 140* in stop and go traffic up to 180*, but once I start going again it drops down to about 140*-150*. I called and told him about it and he said as long as it doesn't get too high into the 200's I should be okay. I run an Edge Insight and one of the gauges shown is the trans temp so I don't have to scroll through my DIC to find it all the time.

Mike knows his stuff!
