 While it's true that
 the majority of the cooling comes from the converter
 spinning, the converter is also where the vast majority of
 the heat comes from so without the heat from the converter
 the transmission shouldn't even get warm.  I would be
 curious to see if it even gets noticeably warmer than
 ambient temperature.  Maybe someone that is towing will

 If it is a stick, don't
 worry about it, but move as much weight as you  can into
 the front trunk. Battery? (Spare should already be there!),
 or into the  tow vehicle, to limit the amount of weight on
 the rear wheels. If a PG, the  issue is that trans fluid
 will be circulating through the transmission, as long  as
 the rear wheels are turning (because a pump is driven when
 they turn, a good  thing), but the only cooling of trans
 fluid is the regular spinning of the  torque converter, and
 the integral fan during normal operation
 which it  will not be doing if the engine isn't
 running. Perhaps a midway stop for a long  lunch will allow
 the fluid to cool down for a while. Note that some people
 have  NEVER had a problem doing this. - Seth
