What is the average operating temperature of everyone's transmission? Mine obviously runs cooler since winter is here, but it never warms up much (I will be lucky if it hits the minimum 104 mark on the 20 minute commute to work normally). Today I had to travel for work and drove about 200 miles going 55-60 mph and it never made it over 107. The outside air temp was about 36-38 degrees.

At the same time the above is going on, I noticed that it wasn't dropping into 5th gear (final overdrive). It made the shift twice the whole day, but as soon as I would hit the brakes for a car to turn and get back up to speed, it wouldn't drop back into it. It didn't seem to matter if I was in MDS mode or not as I could deviate my gas pedal enough to kick it out of MDS and the RPM's wouldn't change. I was on open level farmland the whole day and there was also no head/tail wind the whole day so it wasn't fighting that.

Does anyone have any experience with this?
