Well, I figured it out. Called ScanGauge in AZ and determined that the alphanumeric string for TXD that had (01) at that end needs to be entered. I had stopped before the (01) because I didn't know that 01 should be entered. Apparently it is in parentheses because it is necessary in some cases and not in others. After I edited the TXD string to add the 01 at the end I got a trans temp reading. Woo Hoo!

I hope this helps some of you.

YEAH! I LOVE DRILLING HOLES IN THE TRANNY BLOCK AND PAN....said no one ever!


I took my drain plug out during a fluid change, took the drain plug and the sending unit to a machine shop, and had the drain plug drilled and threaded to accept the sending unit. Cost 20 clams. I tighten the sending unit into the drain plug and never remove the sending unit from the drain plug. I remove the wire from the sender and remove the drain plug to drain the fluid.


The big question is what oil temperature do you want to sample? My setup is sampling the hottest oil; the oil that just got used and has fallen back into the pan for reuse. The tranny sends this pan oil from the pan, thru the filter and to the cooler first thing before using it in the system and the coolest oil in the system is coming out from that cooler. When they talk about damaging oil temps, it's the oil from the cooler they are discussing, not the oil in the pan. This difference can be alot, depending on your cooler setup. I feel if I can keep my pan oil temps in range, the post-cooler temps are well within range.


My new coach, like most others here, has a tranny temperature gage. I have no idea what temp that is gage showing. Is it hottest temps of the pan oil? Is it coolest temps of the post-cooler oil? Is it something in between? Who knows. If you have good coolers, wet and dry, the difference between pre- and post-cooler temps can be alot.
