I was bored in traffic today and scrolled through the displays. I showed
a trans temp at 218 and the engine temp at 229. The OAT was reading
108, probably closer to 103 real world. What is the normal ranging for
trans temp? I see the engine temp run anywhere from low 200s through
240 sitting in traffic on hot days like this.
Automatics are usually cooled by running the tranny fluid through a coil
in the radiator. So it sounds like the antifreeze was heating up quick
and hadn't tripped the fans on yet.

My C6 6 speed runs at most 210 but it has a separate cooler and I've
never run in over 104 degrees, not the car indicator but a bank and a
radio station temperature. Never seen more than 220 on the coolant
temp but then I've never been caught in traffic at 103 degrees.
