What temp is too high for transmission?


How many gallons of antifreeze does a Dodge Ram 2500 hold?

This 1996 Ram 2500 has a cooling system capacity of 6 gallons (common for 12v Cummins engines). Divide your total cooling system capacity by 2; this is the amount of coolant concentrate (anti-freeze) that you must add to the radiator.

Can you run a Cummins without a thermostat?

You can run without a thermostat, if you restrict the flow of coolant. The closer the engine temp runs to 210, the more power it will produce, with less fuel consumption. The engine will also create less internal wear at this temperature.

Where is thermostat on Cummins?

If you look below where the upper radiator hose connects, you will see 4 bolts. This is the thermostat housing. If you remove the 4 bolts the thermostat housing will come off. Then you will see the thermostat.

Where is the thermostat on 350 Cummins?

the thermostat is a sliding type deal behind the radiator snout. it is not at all uncommon for the thermostat to bind up. we have had that problem before, and it wasn’t consistant.

Where is the thermostat on a 855 Cummins?

Thermostats are on the right side towards front, remove them and see if the issue goes away. Subject: RE: 855 BIG CAM CUMMINS OVERHEATING? The thermostats on a low flow 855 are on the passenger side and if i remember right, they are above the coolant filter in that housing.

How many thermostats does a 6.7 Cummins have?

The Cummins 52927424 Cross References: The replacement 200 thermostats are required for the right engine operating temperatures on the Dodge diesel.

What temperature should a 6.7 Cummins run at?

Factory Activation Temperature: 190 Degrees Fahrenheit (1999-2009 2013 Cummins) 200 Degrees Fahrenheit (2010-2012 Cummins)

How much coolant does a 5.7 Hemi take?

5.7 Liter V-8 Engine For the cooling system, the initial fill capacity is 15.9 qts. The five-speed automatic-transmission requires 17 qts. of fluid. When paired with a four-speed transmission, 8.8 qts. is needed.

What is the normal temperature for a Dodge Ram 1500?

Normal coolant temperature – 230 degrees – Penstar.

What is the normal operating temperature of a 5.7 Hemi?

Registered. Ok, well we know the operating temp for your Hemi should be 203°F, a few degree higher than most motors, but that is the figure you should see plus/minus a few degrees.

How hot should a diesel transmission run?

200-225 is very common when the ambient air temp is 80-100 degrees and your transmission is under an increased load. Temperatures from 230-240 have been reached with no damage to the transmission. If you are seeing temps above 225 degrees on a regular basis you should check your fluid level.

What is normal operating temperature for a transmission?

175 to 220 degrees

What temp is too high for transmission?

The ideal operating temperature of transmission fluid is 175 degrees. Overheating occurs after the temperature surpasses 200 degrees, and the failure rate doubles for every additional 20 degree increase after that.
