There is no real relationship between engine coolant temperature and transmission oil temperature.The engine temp. will be at operating level in less than a mile while the trans.will be barely warm at that point especially in cold weather.Since the torque-converter is the main source of heat,stop and go traffic will get the oil temp. up best.My Allison shows the most heat under these conditions.
