If your transmission is heating up, one reason could be that your transmission isn’t able to properly cool due to the restrictive stock transmission pan you probably have on it. Maybe it’s time for an upgrade…
Part of your vehicles transmission is the transmission pan. This is located at the bottom of the transmission and can be removed to service the transmission while it is still in the vehicle. The main purpose of a transmission pan is to hold the fluid that provides a cooling effect in the transmission.
The stock transmission pan holds an adequate amount of transmission fluid for stock applications and normal everyday driving. On any high performance vehicle, towing vehicle, racing vehicle, etc., especially one with high performance transmission and torque converter, a heavy duty transmission pan is a good idea. A heavy duty transmission pan holds more transmission fluid than a stock transmission pan, which helps the transmission to run cooler while ensuring that the pick up will always be covered by fluid, even during hard acceleration, braking or cornering.
A cast aluminum transmission pan is an especially worthy choice for a heavy duty transmission. The aluminum transmission pan is far stronger than a stock stamped steel pan. The cast aluminum transmission pan helps cool the fluid better than a steel pan due to aluminums exceptional heat dissipating qualities.
