Trans temperature gauge


OK, heres the deal...I installed an Autometer tranny temp gauge in my truck this morning...4L60 trans....Its about 35-40 degrees around here, winters coming...Went into town to run a few errands. Temp on gauge went to about 125F, that was about it. Ran a total of about 10 miles. Is this normal for this time of year?..How long should it take to get up to operating temp this time of year, or is this the normal temp for this time of year?

 

Just trying to get a baseline here, as I have never monitored trans temp before.

That doesn't sound bad. How much of a trans cooler do you have? I would suspect that has a great deal to do with cool temps. Have to wait and hear from our technical wizard!...Denny, where are you?...biggrin

I probably didnt drive it far enough to get it warm. I will see in a few weeks, have to go down to the city. These days its just a quick trip into town. I should have installed a month ago when I was still hauling my trailer around...Oh well, next year....lol
