i'd like to know the answer, too.. Is it better to measure before the cooler or after? Or is it a never ending debate like the "should i install my pyrometer before or after the turbo?"

I would guess 180 under a load, maybe 190 degrees. You could pull 200-210 with AC on uphill in the Gobi desert.

if you pull 250 for any length of time, your E4OD is toasted like a quiznos sub.

Best I can describe it.

I read in four wheeler 175 but it was a general article all transmissions didn't know if it varied at all i'm going to put the sending unit in a test line pressure spot like they did in a article in this months four wheeler this will give me a reading before the cooler.

i have mine mounted in the tranny pan. it is reading the fuild just before it gets sucked into the filter.
during the summer the trans usually reads about 160-170 under normal driving and during the winter its below 140 with normal driving. i try no let the trans temp go over 210 when i drive hard.

My 74 the tranny will not run below 210 on a cold day and 230 on a hot day. It has yet to come apart(knock on wood).
