I hope my post doesn’t get us off on a big tangent. Inphiniti, a cooler is mandatory in our opinions. The stock ‘cooler’ is a heat-exchanger. It helps regulate trans temps by using the coolant in the winter, the coolant is hot and brings trans temps up. In the summer, the heat-exchanger can knock a little bit of heat out of the trans fluid. But none of it is enough because we want trans temps at or so, and the heat exchanger can often not accomplish this especially in these cars when stock – with the hot t-stat and horrid fan thresholds. I have my gauge’s sender located on the line leaving the trans and going to the cooler I use only a stand-alone cooler. I live in the desert and the heat exchanger only heated my fluid up. Wes took care of that with some changes and now I’m going to much larger 29, BTU cooler.
Installing an Automatic Transmission Fluid Cooler
As a result, they are easy to come by and relatively inexpensive. I picked the Chevrolet LS1 V8 because of it’s awesome output numbers, availability, reliability and personal testimony from a couple of my friends who have them. I knew it would be a little more challenging than swapping in an LT1 or earlier engine, but so what! The outcome will be that much better.
Installing a Transmission Temperature Gauge Paradise Garage Related Pages The trans temp gauge is on the bottom. Home Depot sells plastic caps to hide the screws. These are cool, but hard to open once closed. Hook up the battery and go! You’re done!
It is a Chevy dealer in Chicago named Jennings Chevrolet. Their phone is They will probably sell direct instead of through ebay because they had a bunch if clusters listed, so nobody is going to bid it up when there are other ones still on the opening bid. Almost as easy to install as the gauge cluster. Tim Jeremy-WI , On the Z ‘s with the factory cooler there are no ports on the radiator to hook the tranny up to Sonny01 , How did you do it?
Obviously there are a small number of places who can do it to help prevent fraud. My question is, does the trucks computer also record the mileage, and tell if the odometer has been replaced? I know with scan tool on these it will tell you the mileage since the computer was last cleared okie-chevy-man , I have been told that the gauge came with higher trim levels. I have also been told that the tow pkg consists of an external trans.
I cant vouch for the accuracy of these statements, just passing on what I have been told. Tim okie-chevy-man ,
The Right Way to Wire Up Gauges for Your Classic Chevy
It is generally given for the thermistor in still air, and in well-stirred oil. Typical values for a small glass bead thermistor are 1. If the temperature of the environment is known beforehand, then a thermistor may be used to measure the value of the dissipation constant. For example, the thermistor may be used as a flow rate sensor, since the dissipation constant increases with the rate of flow of a fluid past the thermistor. The power dissipated in a thermistor is typically maintained at a very low level to ensure insignificant temperature measurement error due to self heating.
However, some thermistor applications depend upon significant “self heating” to raise the body temperature of the thermistor well above the ambient temperature so the sensor then detects even subtle changes in the thermal conductivity of the environment.
I am new here and am trying to put a transmission temp gauge in my silverado 4×4. I have the 4L60E and found a plug above the front drive shaft, and above the shift linkage.
Some of the suggestions: Yes, I checked this carefully when I replaced the radiator. No cracks, it’s not warped, and it fits tight against the radiator. This is a fan clutch versus an electrical fan. I did replace this. And when things warm up, I can hear it “roar”, so it is responding as expected and tightening up as the temp rises. I think you are on to something. I actually had it professionally flushed. And prior to this, I noticed I had no heat – heater hoses were cold. It was a very painful process to get it bled and get the heater working.
I took it to the shop for the flush – and after I drove off, no heat Even with the heater not working I clearly had flow or it would have immediately overheated. However, the flow was obviously not optimal as the heater core was not getting proper flow. I later replaced the T-stat with a and had a heck of a time getting the heater going again.
Extra oil cooling by way of a larger accessory cooler, which can drop the transmission temperature by as much as 10 degrees C. Coolers with their own fan and shroud are also available. The standard factory valve bodies suffer from warpage due to heat, we can perform a valve body overhaul resulting in increased line pressure and cooler flow. Lifting stall speed to allow for larger tyres.
We also have transmission temperature gauge, override control switches etc available. These respond well to valve body reworking for increased line pressure and convertor lock up performance.
Dec 02, · GlowShift’s 7 Color Series Transmission Temperature Gauge is perfect for any vehicle with an automatic transmission; especially diesel trucks tow heavy loads.
Also, not sure if this was mentioned in the manual clearly, but S5 is what it’s referring to, but that doesn’t mean you have to shift all the gears. It just means that it will do it’s automatic thing, NOT to exceed 5th Gear. If you had it in S3, it would start in 1st, then shift to 2nd, then to 3rd, but would just run up the RPMs at that point because you asked it not to shift to 4th. It’s easy to do when in D, just move the shifter left once, which automatically puts it in S4, bump it up once until it shows S5 on your dash, and drive.
If you need more power, hit the ECT power button, which will change when your engine shifts automatically to improve power at the cost of fuel economy. Basically all you are trying to do is avoid 6th gear, because it’s a well overdriven gear which is not rated to pull loads, it’s a fuel economy in normal situations kinda thing. One cool thing about the auto is that if you are approaching a big hill, you can bump the shifter down and it will Change from S5 to S4, and won’t leave 4th until you bump it back to S5.
Temp gauge using stock sensor?
The pyrometer measures the temperature of the exhaust. Typically, anything over degrees Fahrenheit for an extended time will cause damage to the pistons. You will achieve a more accurate reading by installing the pyrometer pre-turbo.
Feb 18, · I screwed the temp gauge into the test port on the driver side of the trans. I heard its off by *, but it serves its purpose and tons easier to install Edit: found a couple threads that I used.
Koyo rads are on ebay all day long. That will give you some peace of mind. The radiator cooler serves two functions. It warms the trans fluid to operating temp quicker than the transmission can do on its own, which help prolong its life. Second, it cools the transmission better than just an air-cooled aux cooler can do. A liquid to liquid cooler is far more efficient than an air to liquid cooler.
What’s Your Automatic Transmission Temperature???
Posted July 11, Category: Installation was pretty straight forward and just required some basic hand tools, teflon tape, and something to cut steel tubing with I actually used a dremel and cutoff wheel but a tubing cutter would be best. The kit comes with all the needed hardware and fittings, and even includes electrical wire to hook everything up with. Our XJ used the smaller of the two fittings. I started out by going ahead and assembling the T-fitting and sending unit.
Personally, I think the supply line is the best line because it will give you a hotter reading than the return line coming from the radiator.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS SHORT SWEEP ELECTRIC GAUGES Rev. C A. Water Temp: Install temperature sender (included). Purchase of additional fittings such as metric or hose adapters may be back of gauge, and the opposite end to a .
It may not be necessary to monitor the transmission fluid temp on your new Sprinter. Several members who tow heavy trailers and some of the RV crowd have added separate aftermarket trans. F warmer than the engine coolant temp. I tow fairly heavy trailers, and have never had any trans. Just ensure that you use the correct transmission fluid and I suspect you will have no issues with trans. Manually downshifting and perhaps running only about 65 MPH RPMs in 4th gear is also a good idea if you are pushing any sort of headwinds.
Using a small screwdriver you can easily spread the hinge loops and remove the little cover without damaging it. Then you can carefully cut some clearance for the SGII plug into the fuse cover with a hot knife, or simply leave the fuse cover off. If you goof up the receptacle in any way, they will charge you for an unauthorized modification or simply refuse to diagnose your issues as the connector they need has been compromised. I’ve never had any issues with the cutouts in the grey fuse cover.
Hope this helps, blue , Check online at www. Not sure what thread but it was recent where it was discussed about plugging in the newer models. I have only had mine a week and haven’t decided on where I can locate mine without a lot of drilling or modification.

My symptoms are no power to speak of below rpm. At that point turbo boost occurs and power comes up, though no where near what it should be. The engine revs smoothly but runs out of steam before rpm. I’m left to decide if the problem is the AMM or the O2 sensor. If your B FT throws oil around like mine, the throttle body can easily get crudded up and cause problems exactly as you described.
Transmission Temperature Gauges MaxTow Double Vision Transmission Temperature Gauge is an electronically driven truck gauge with an electronic temperature sensor to read and display your truck’s automatic transmission temperature from degrees Fahrenheit with exceptional accuracy.
Some of these are original, most are “gleaned” from others a cut-paste reminders You will need to provide detail info. Run the engine at about RPM, and the voltage at the battery should be It goes down at higher temperature, so if it’s in the 80’s or 90’s, you may only get to If it’s low, remove the left body panel side cover and about half way up the vertical frame section behind the motor, you will find a plug that has 3 white with a blue?
Inspect this for burned wiring. If you find a lead that’s been overheated, you can cut the plug out, and connect the wiring directly by twisting one stator lead and one regulator lead together, and then soldering them and taping them. It should be equal, and if one pair is obviously lower, you have a bad stator. The service manual has resistance checks for the stator as well as the rectifier section. The main fault is the low quality male-female blade connectors they chose, considering this alternator can pump 30 amps at peak 10 per winding so with any corrosion of the connection, they heat up and melt something Another charging problem was caused by the main fuse link in the smaller red wire that attaches to the battery having it’s link come loose.
This link is in a plastic case and it’s just to the left of the battery. Open it up and make sure these screws are snug. Unless the battery is charged, the bike will crank slow.
