Just a quick note that I've had my convertor lock up with the with trans temp lower and seems more dependant on engine temp than I first thought. Prob a combination

my 01 wont use OD until the engine reaches a certain temp, same with my 05 F-150. also its normal for auto transmissions to react slower when they are super cold.
