Transynd

I'm going to take the easy way out and ask here. Does anyone know what the flash point for Transynd is?

Just curious, why would that come into play?

It really doesn't. I am comparing flash points of Transynd and Dexron just for my own personal piece of worthless information.

I was parked next to a guy a few months ago who had a new diesel.

His old one developed a serious transmission leak while on a trip that ran under the coach and caught fire, totaled it.

The only way transmission fluid or hydraulic fluid will Flash and catch fire is when it gets sprayed onto the turbo area and exhaust manifold where the temperatures are well over the flash point of those fluids.

It won't happen by running onto the ground.

To help prevent a total loss from an engine fire, there are AFFF fire extinguisher systems you can install in your engine compartment.

I have one and I hope that it never gets used.
