Can a bad thermostat make the transmission not shift in the 2008 v8 impalla

What do you mean by bad ? Thermostats can be stuck open or closed . Stuck closed , the engine will over heat . Stuck open the engine will not get up to operating temp . , your year vehicle , would cause a code to set . Wouldn't cause a transmission shift problem . Have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Now a faulty ECT - engine coolant temp. sensor could cause shifting .

What does in mean when the tempture keeps going up on the transmission

I'm going to assume this is an automatic transmission. The main cause of increased temp is the fluid isn't being cooled. For this you will have to 1) Check the coolant level.mix. Pure water is a no-no. 2) Make sure the transmission fluid lines to the radiator aren't crimped/constricted. You may also need a transmission service. Meaning, complete drain of trans fluid, new filter, gasket and fluid. The temp sensor may have gone wonky as well. A Chilton/Haynes repair manual should help under the trouble shooting section. These repair manuals are found at auto parts stores, Walmart etc. They are invaluable in helping a person perform own maintenance and repair and will advise when repair is best done by professional. And can give ideas so that less than honest shops can't rip you off by advising un-necessary repairs.

How to check transmission temp sender on 1992 w350 dodge

How to check the Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor. There is a reason for it. The sensor can skew ,a skewed sensor will mean either the computer thinks that the fluid is either too cold and thick for shifting or the computer will want to go into hot mode. Hot mode means no OD. Overdrive. Overdrive means no mechanical coupling.

Use an infra temp gun. There are two windows to a typical gun. the top window is the laser. It gives you something to point with. The bottom larger window is the infra red. This is what actually takes the temperature. Temp guns are getting cheap.

Place the gun on a hot transmission cooler line and compare the reading to the gauge.

Hi my grandad has just past away nd his past his 1989 mitsubishi pajero down to my mum but a light on the dash keeps comin on sayin AT TEMP how do I fix it ???

AT TEMP usually indicates Auto Transmission over heating. Can be caused by overworking the transmission (ie, driving in soft sand with overdrive on) or it could just mean the Transmission needs a service. If the transmission fluid hasn't been changed recently, maybe try that as first point of call.

Trans temp and od light is on what does this mean

Transmission Temperature light only comes on when the transmission has reached the operating limits and tells the temp sender to send a warning. The OD light is the Over Drive light.
There may be several reasons causing the Trans. Temp light to come on. The first would be if the transmission is low on transmission fluid.
Place you vehicle on a level surface. You can check this by letting the vehicle warm up to normal operating temperature, then open the hood and remove the transmission dipstick and wipe it clean with a paper towel or shop rag. Then reinsert it and remove it again, holding it horizontal look at the end of the dipstick. You will see a level mark and a add mark. If it's on the add mark then you need to add transmission fluid. Do not add more then 8 ounces at a time, before rechecking the level.
If the fluid is full, smell the fluid on the dipstick, does it have a burnt smell?
If the fluid has a burnt smell or it's a dark brown color then you will need to change the transmission fluid and filter.
The Overdrive light is on due to high transmission temp or because the Overdrive button has been pushed. ( If equipped with a manual overdrive button)
When the transmission is hot it will turn the overdrive off to increase the speed and pressure of the transmission fluid to help cool the transmission.
So this problem will go hand in hand if you find a problem with the transmission fluid.
You can also take you vehicle to you local auto parts store and have them check the engine codes. There may be another problem causing this issue.

What is the AT OIL TEMP light? and if it is flashing, what does that mean?

That indicates an Automatic Transmission Oil Temperature problem. Your transmission is overheating. Check the oil level in the transmission, also when was the last time you had the transmission oil changed? This could be occuring because of an excessive load on the trans(pulling a trailer) etc. Generally if it is flashing it means stop now. Could be as benign as a failed sensor, but definitely needs to be checked out.
