Isn't it interesting the number of "reasons" for the overheating problem that the dealers come up with?
Large motorhome mudflap restricting airflow to trans area.
Overfilled fluid level (after dealer inspected tow level)
Traveling too fast (I maintain 62mph for mileage concerns)
Rock/debris shield on tow car
"You must stop every 100miles to run engine/trans"
Until some outside pressure is applied, we affected ones will just wait for the other shoe to drop when the trans finally packs it in. My dealer today admitted they have yet to install a Remco/Ford kit, not sure if they want to take the responsibilty of the "very complicated installation procedure". Wewill be leaving for AZ next week, hope we make it, I am now armed with a laser thermometer to monitor the heat build up while towing. Found one at Harbor Freight for about $25. The service manager told me not to let it get much above 220dg, it will boil at about 240. Had the fluid level checked before AND after service to make sure the lube tech didn't "top off" the trans fluid............. Here we go...........
