PeterM1, what was the cause of your limp mode if it wasn't the oil or coolant temps?

This is seat of the pants temp gauge but it seems like the ATs generate about 15 degrees more temp than the MTs. The radiator really is too small and just not enough if you have an AT as part of its capacity is used to to cool the transmission because it gets hotter than an MT.

I'm in the same boat.
