Have you checked the transmission oil cooler to make sure a line has not been mashed flat or kinked? Make sure it is not clogged with dirt or leaves. You may need to install a bigger transmission cooler. The temperature should be more like 175. Once you fix the problem change the fluid!

its elec. as soon as you turn key on cold it says 264
