[3FE] Re: Transmission Heat

ooooh ooooooh oooooohh Me too.(Hand raised and waving)
I have an ongoing diagnosis in the works that realtes to this.

I have posted several questions about Transmission heat and the 
tornadic hot winds that seem to come from the shifter area.
My symptoms though, also included the AT oil temp light. 
Look in the files area and do a search for info on Auto 
Transmissions. I have since flushed my tranny and t-case. 
Performance has improved and it even diminished the R - D clunk when 
shifting from n or park. The heat, damnit, is still around. 
I am hoping that a filter cleaning and or change will help with the 

Cats are another idea though. Could be that I have two problems and 
the heat is actually exhaust.
