    Default Transmission normal temperature operating range for 2015 200c v6

    Hey guys, what is considered a normal transmission temperature operating range for a 2015 Chrysler 200c w/v6 engine? For the longest time it seemed like my transmission temperature would run between 145-154F, which is about midway along the gauge. As of lately I've been running 154-165F on average peaking at 192F. The 192F reading happened today, hence the reason for this post because it seemed way outside of the norm for this time of year in California. The outdoor temperatures were in the mid 60s, which by no means is a hot day.

    There's a transmission temperature gauge in these cars?

    I'm aware of that, what I'm looking for are those that can share their transmission temperature operating range so that I can try and gauge if my transmission is operating within a normal range or if mine is running too hot.

    Yes in the 15+ 200 - coolant temp, trans temp, oil life to name a few measurements - in the driver information center.

    I could swear there was a trans temp on the first gen as well, have to play with the driver information center. I very well could be wrong about the first gen, I haven't had my 13' in 2 years now.

    larry_thagr81 I think blincoln was asking a question.

    I will check mine today and let you know - it's almost always in the middle unless I am rushing around and getting on it etc.., I forget what that actual temp is. My trans has had no issues and has over 95,000 miles on it, so I would say whatever mine is at is within normal range.

    My apologies, I read your question as a statement. Yes they're is a transmission gauge readout for 2015 models and newer. I'm not sure for models prior to 2015.

    Today was about 45F on the way home (unseasonably cold here today). My trans temp peaked at 176 on my 38 mile commute, early on it stayed around 137-155, after a few passes on the highway it stayed around 176.

    Come to think of it in the middle of summer I think I have seen it as high as 200 - I will have to wait till it warms up in the next few days and post back. Hope that helps.

    I would say if it isn't doing anything wrong, I wouldn't really worry about it.

    I appreciate the feedback, my trans temp peaked at 176F on my second trip I took today for an 8 mile stretch.

    It seems like normal operating temperature for these transmissions is 165-170. That's generally what mine gets to and stays at when operating for about a 30 minute drive in nearly all temperatures. A few weeks ago we had taken an hour drive and got stuck in traffic. As we stopped and crept along, the temperature started creeping up peaking at 192. From a durability standpoint, transmissions typically hate heat. I think the fluid in these transmissions is way more advanced than what I'm used to in previous cars and I'm confident it can handle the heat. That being said, mine operates a lot smoother once it warms up. My buddy has a Ram with the 8 speed and it's operating temperature is around 192 for comparison.
