So this brand new trans is getting hot as **** on you? Sounds like it might be an issue with the rebuild, do you have a warranty on it? What fluid did you use in this thing?

+1 on warranty and I'm interested in what fluid you have in as well...my 3650 seems to be getting hot lately more than every, and recently I decided to try some pennzoil synchromesh, thinking about swapping back to Mobil 1 or trying Mercon V

They sell a transmission cooler on AM. But if its rebuilt I don't see why it would get hot and difficult to shift

Yea first post mentions 3650...OP I'd get back to whoever did the work on the rebuild and take it up with them..not much we can really help with, a rebuilt tranny SHOULD NOT be getting that hot..again what type of fluid did u put in the trans?

This could be a windage problem (too much oil) that you are experiencing. Try draining and refilling with 3.25 quarts instead of the 4 quarts that the factory recommends. There was a Technical Service Bulletin about the oil level being too high at the 4 quarts and causing shifting problems. Mobil 1 or Mercon V.

I used to have mine filled at 4qts from the factory and never had heating issues, I did have shifting issues (hard to put into gear)..when I drained and put back 3.2 qts the hard shifting stopped..

I guess my question to you guys would be, how do you know that your transmission is getting "too hot"? Do you have gauges? What I got from OP's post, is that the trans gets harder to shift when it is hot as opposed to when it is cold.

Mobile 1 synthetic. They get hot when you run hard. That's pretty normal

I can feel the shifter getting hot from the trans then it gets harder to shift. I might have too much fluid in it
