    What is an appropriate temp range and what’s on the high side for these? I had it hit 189 today which is a record for me normal is 170.

    Second Q. What’s the avg amount of ATF that is lost during a pan drop and filter change?

    The trans is connected to the engine cooling system, so that's a little high but not critical yet... keep it below 200..... can add a cooling fan to the cooler or a bigger cooler will always help.

    I believe a simple pan and filter is like 6 qts ish…..

    I’ve never had it get so high before. I wonder if I have a flow issue.

    As is my solenoid pack needs to be switch out. I lose my TQ lockup. 214k miles it needs a flush but that’s not in the budget for this beater. It’s gunna get a pan drop/filter/solenoid pack and it’s gunna like it.
