Did you know that every 10-degree rise in transmission temperature above 200 degrees cuts transmission fluid life in half?
To combat high temps make sure the fluid level is always correct. You should refer to your owner's manual for exact procedures, but generally check the fluid level when it is hot. Run the transmission through all gears and set it in Park. Check the level with the motor on. It should be between the low and high marks. Do not over-fill.
Secondly, if you don't have a transmission cooler install one!
