4R70W running warmer than normal
My father has been using my Cougar for the last two weeks... He said today, it dropped out of OD on the highway (O/D off light came on steady). He stopped and shut the car off (didn't know about the O/D Lockout button) and it worked again, but the transmission was running close to 220 after that... I have B&M gauge with 160, then a white block, then 220 over the line between the white and yellow blocks. I took it for a short drive (maybe 5 miles) this evening with a little stop and go, and a 2 mi sprint on the highway, and it was half way between the 160 and 220 marks. It's been hotter out in the last two weeks than it was today, and it never ran that hot on any of those days, even with stop and go traffic. I scanned for codes with my microtuner, and there where none. Any suggestions? If it comes to needing to rebuild it, any suggestions what kind of rebuild kit to buy?
