    Long time to reach operating temp. (6R80 Trans.)

    I was wondering how long it should take for the 6R80 trans. to reach operating temperature. I clocked mine yesterday and it took an hour to reach the 190 degree temps., it does this at any outside temperature. I am not having any issues, just curious if anyone elses takes this long to warm up.

    Yeah mine takes a while. Not sure that its that long, but takes MUCH longer than the engine. I do have to climb some 7% grades everyday to go to town so that may be why mine doesnt take an hour. If it is getting to 190F then I doubt its an issue with the solenoid T-stat. It would never warm up if the solenoid was stuck open.

    Plus, you gotta remember you 2016 is probably 4500 lbs or something so if you are just cruising around on flat roads the thing probably isnt dealing with too much power.

    I just drove a half hour and climbed probably 1000 ft and my trans temp only got to 167F. So yeah, I can see if you are cruising along on a flat road with the torque converter locked in 6th gear that it would take an hour to full warm up

    I have no issues with this thread... no need to have this lost with the other thread that's related to someone else's dealer problems.
    To answer the question, yes it takes a while to reach operating temps if you're not putting truck through it's paces.
    In the winter time, I have to go out of my way once in a while just to make sure the trans fluid gets hot enough to open the thermostat, so that it can burn off any moisture that may be in there.
    My daily commute of 1/2 hr hwy driving in colder temps, 165 seems to be the highest I reach.
