Can I keep driving my truck
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I believe what you saw said A/T temp, which comes on when the transmission temperature climbs too high. This could be an inaccurate temperature sensor signal or the trans actually overheating. If the transmission is actually overheating under normal driving it could be a slipping clutch (usually the torque converter clutch) or a trans cooler system flow issue.

Are you noticing any symptoms?
