I am pretty sure that this is normal operation, until I put the aux coolers on my trucks, this was a regular thing,(tranny trying to save it's own life) I've never gone so far as to have gotten a temp trans light tho. In OD your trans is making an amazing amount of low rpm heat, I think, more rpm = more hyd pressure = less internal slippage? I may be wrong, but I remember on the a727b's in my old runners and chargers, kickdown linkage adjustments were critical, because the kickdown link was critical to modulated pressure, controlling slippage, and destructive heat. I may be oversimplifying, but I'm pretty certain pulling hard at a low rpm spells death to trannies. case in point, my kid used to do cruise nights in overdrive in an 86 T/A, cooked transmissions were the result, according to the tranny shop, after they had money in hand, it oughtta say something about that in the manuals, but it doesn't...
