Why is the car steaming from underneath and temperature gauge staying on the colder side after swapping out transmission on 94 accord lx?

It might have nothing to do with the transmission. Check for coolant leak. A small leak can cause a lot of steam if it hits the manifold or exhaust line. Other than that, find out where the steam is comming from, then you can get a better idea of what's going on.
