E34 Tranny overheat?

My e34 535i 5spd transmission overheats. Anyone got any clues why it would do it? Maybe fluid is bad or low?

There is going to be some heat transfer to the rod, It's normal for it to be hot but to the point where one might think it's overheating is concerning.

Are all the rubber bushings there, for example the dustboot etc. You're going to have to pull up the shift boot and surround to check this.

Do you have an exhaust leak? That sometimes causes the tranny to heat up
