Hi Scotty, i have 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Se, With 96,000 miles on it. When ever i go 70 mph or higher, for longer than 30 minutes on the highway. I get a warning on my display that the transmission is over heating to slow down . Sometimes i pull over and stop till it cools down and the warning goes out. Other times i slow way down to 55mph till the warning signal goes away. I had the transmission filters both replaced and had transmission fluid changed. When my dad hooked it up to the scan tool we got a code of, $7e8. Online it says these are air intake codes of some sort. What do you recommend that is wrong with the transmission? What can i do to fix this? This is my only car im still making payments on it and i need it to travel long distance for doctor appointments. Please Help
I had the transmission filters both replaced and had transmission fluid changed.
maybe it was done incorrectly. If it's overfilled it'll foam up and overheat. Make sure the fluid is at the correct level by following a service guide very carefully.
Scotty assumes your transmission cooler is not working or is clogged or the transmission is wearing out at 9:16
