    Ok so finally Long Island got a storm we could go out on. Just seeing if any of you have noticed this when plowing. When I first pulled into my lot I noticed that my engine temp went up very slightly. The truck usually runs a drop over 210 so say it was at 212 it went no hotter than 216 but cooled very quickly back to running temp and then stay throughout the lot. Then when I would go to the next lot it would do it within the first few minutes there ancd then quickly run back to normal. I this because it just takes sometime for the fans to kick on. There is no problem during transport and I usually do 50 60. I have the 5.3 Heavy Duty Cooling Package. Dual electric fans.

    Also what do you guys see from the transmission as far as temps. Mine varies greatly ranging from 150 to 180 and see spikes of 190
