Warm up the Tranny?

How long do I need to run the boat to warm up the transmission fluid enough to pump it out to change the fluid?

+1, just did mine, no need to warm up. Throw the hose down there and start pumping.

That's for the engine oil. Its thick when its cold makes it slow to drain.

You guys don't warm up the tranny??? hmmmm yep i went there...

as for the oil no.. technically the oil is thinner when it is cold 15w-40w so warming it up actually makes it thicker... Don't blame me Mike205 keeps pointing it out...

This is not what multi-viscosity oil means. 15w-40 is still "thicker" or more viscous when cold and thinner when hot.

you got that backwards -- 15 weight at 32 degress 40 at operating - thinner when cold.. run motor for a minute to stir up any sediment in pan - take it out.

Oil is thinner cold? what is the world coming to. Next thing you know Tr.... never mind, theres another thread for that.

My Transmission runs motor oil and I warm mine up, it seems to drain faster. but then again I usually drink a beer or two while doing all this, so that could have something to do with it.
