Never, no aux cooler. But, I have a temp gauge. When I see the temp climbing, I do what it takes to bring it down.

An aux cooler is an excellent idea, though.

Never had mine come on... I have a transmission oil cooler with fan... but I find it is almost useless when pushing my heavy trailer up my steep driveway in reverse. I've had the oil temp gauge zoom up to way north of 240 degrees and smoke coming off the transmission before.... and no HOT OIL light either. Makes me wonder how hot the transmission has to get internally before that light comes on?

You have a 2007...
Did you get the TSB done?
240 degrees seems pretty HOT OIL to me...

Mine went off three times last week after the dealer resealed my transmission pan needless to say it is back at the dealership where it might stay.

2007 - Yes. TSB - Yes. And 240 is HOT when the normal range in mine when NOT pulling the trailer is 20-30 degrees over ambient. And when pulling the trailer, only 50 degrees over ambient. The only time when the transmission gets over 200 is backing that damn*ed trailer up my steep driveway... and then only if I have to do it twice because my geometrically challenged wife can't visualize what angle I have to obtain to put the passenger tire closest to the edge. Butcha'd also figure, having done it a few times each year, I'd learn where to put that blasted tire myself. Oh, well. Fodder for another thread.

IIRC - on the old mechanical gauges, hot was 260+ degrees and the 240 to 260 range was a yellow caution band, and anything below 240 was considered O.K. I have smelled the oil in mine and it does not have a burned smell to it... but I don't know what the burned synthetic would smell like.

I think I would put it in 4low to back up that hill!

Mine has never come on - I do pull a heavy trailer. I never use 4high - the auto is such a dog in 2wd or 4hi! I have put an aux trans cooler on just incase!

I was gonna say that...

Dont hesitate to use your options...
The Jeep comes with an nice 4LO option and for backing up a trailer it's just perfect!
Why re-invent the wheel when the options are already available?

I saw the light yesterday while I was running the Superchips program and was wondering the same thing. I have never seen it thankfully but I have only had this jeep for a little over a month.

4 times today.

14 degrees celcius outside.

Long continuous climb for 20 minutes in 2WD
Stopped and let it cool down.

Came back on after a couple minutes.
Stopped and let it cool down, turned O/D off.

Came back on 5 minutes later.
Put it in 4Lo, but we were almost at our destination, so it never got a chance to heat up if it was going to.

Later in the day climbed a couple inclines (maybe 20 feet) switching between 2WD and 4HI and overheated again.

Previous to this, it came on once on a hot day climbing another long steady hill in 4HI and another time while doing some snow wheelin' in 4HI.

The dealership is going to be hearing from me in the morning

TSB done yesterday.

I played on the tech's computer (with him) and we checked the different programming options...
This "Cabin node" configuration had 2 options...
J30-blabla
J30-blabla esp disable

So to those still wondering, yes, the dealer can permanently disable ESP...
No voided waranty, etc.
The tech asked if I wanted this "esp disable" option...

I have a bypass switch so we applied the first one (standard).

Only got the hot oil message once. I was pulling a broken down cherokee up some sandy two tracks, with hills. It went away when I let someone else pull him. But, not until after I shut it off and restarted.

i've gotten it twice but I only have 5000 miles too and have learned whenever in the dirt use 4low or i risk getting it to hot. Sometime soon i'll be adding a tranny cooler and fan.
