Normally not towing on my other trucks i am usually only around 110 to 115. When i stop i notice the temp goes up to 180. I have an 09 ram hemi sport 4x4. Is this normal or not for my truck? I called the dealer and they said its normal but they may have been pushing me off. Thanks for the help!!!
This is kinda late but that seems normal to me as well. It's not too much cooler than your engine temps. But if you want cooler you can change your engine thermostat to a 185 degree stat. That will bring your tanny temps down because your fluid runs through your radiator. Not sure on this but I've seen in forums that the 185 stat is better for a 93 octane tune anyway.
