Why does my transmission get hot quick..

Everytime i put a load (not too heavy) on the truck i drive a few miles and trans temp shoots to 210 and then goes into limp mode..

Or when its hot outside and i get caught in traffic trans gets hot and then goes into limp mode..without a load on it.

I check the trans oil its clean like new,changed filter,cleaned cooler.

What can it be?

Thanks

it's not overfilled is it??? that'll cause issues.

Did you change the external or internal filter?

If you did only use Allison filters as knock offs do not perform as well
