Possible for a tranny to be too cool?

Since the new tranny I dont think I have ever seen my temps get over 140-150. Is this a bad thing?

I'm wondering if maybe my sender is bad. I've never seen temps that low. Usually 160-165.

Your truck is smart. Yep! Smarter than a 5th grader. If it feels a little cool it will take measures to warm up the transmission.

You were part of the design team and probably gonna tell me I'm looking up a dead horse's butt, however, my experience is they won't shift out of second and the torque converter wont lock.
