It does take a while for the guage to read. I put mine in the side of the trans also, and it takes a good 10-15 miles of driving on the HWY for the guage to read just above 100 deg. After about 20-25 min. it gets to just under 150 deg. and that's where it stays if I'm not towing. Just means that your trans. is working well and not building alot of heat. There really isn't alot of friction in the trans. when you are driving down the road. The torque converter is locked, so it's not slipping causing heat, the clutches and bands should be holding not causing heat. Other than the bearings and pump. Not much heat is being built when cruising not towing. When you are towing, the torque converter stays unlocked much longer, the epc commands higher pressures, so heat builds faster.
