Maybe this is more appropriate for the tech section, but I couldn't find any info on this on the forum, so I am asking here.

I just bought a Autometer transmission temperature gauge to keep an eye on how hot my tranny is getting. I was wondering if anyone knew what the "safe" temperature zone is for an AW4 automatic? Having the gauge will be great, but only if I know what temperatures are appropriate.

Normal transmission operating temp is between 150 - 170F.
Heat induced chemical breakdown starts at 180.
Fluid failure (burnt fluid) is in the 230 - 240F range.
