What is the higest the psi you should ever get out of a automatic transmission(700R4 in my case)?
326 is the absolute highest you should ever see. thats in reverse at full TV with a certain wiring setup
What's the normal range of pressure the cooling lines see under proper setup/normal driving? I've always wondered that...ever since I put on my aftermarket cooler with the rubber hose and hose clamps.
its about 50 to 150, depending on the throtle position
holy crap, they put out that much for real ??
i better quit using hose clamps and rubber hose pieces then, hmm,,.,
yea i know how that goes, i have to replace mine in the spring when it warms up. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
Well, I guess that could explain why one of my hoses blew off about a year ago. Scared the crap out of me. I look behind me to a cloud of smoke and then my tranny starts slipping...thought it bit the dust. I come to find out the connection on the return line came off and I got tranny fluid all over my engine compartment - the tranny fluid on the headers is what was smoking. Transmission fluid makes a nice, shiny cleaner. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
well my main reason for asking this was because Im still dealing with my new trans... and today I was backing down the road in reverse at about 1500RPM then put it in neutral then Overdrive and it barley moved /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif then I saw the puddle, I blew off one of my hose to tubing things the weird part is they worked fine on the last trans... oh yea and theres ALOT of brand new ATF all over my motor /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
yea those psi's are at 1000 rpm /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

At least your's didn't go up in flames like mine did /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
Yeah, I wasn't aware that tranny fluid would go up in flames in contact with headers until after the fact. I sure am glad mine didn't do that. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
Which is the reason I'll never use rubber on tranny lines where I don't have to. I know there are arguments for and against, but BTDT, not EVER going to risk an engine fire because of rubber.
