845RFE Temperature

Just picked up a new 14 GC Altitude and I am a little concerned with the transmission temperatures being show. The average temperature is 200!!! Is this normal for this transmission? Seems hot to me. What temps are you guys seeing with this transmission?

Re: 845RFE Temperature

Yes, normal for the ZF transmissions. In fact, they have a transmission fluid "heater" warmed by the coolant to help it reach warm temps sooner.

Re: 845RFE Temperature

194F is the designed temperature and the Life Guard 8 fluid is fully synthetic and good to 300F. Whether the clutch material and solenoids survive that temp is a different question...
