Well iv got everything hooked up now and the temps are still to high from the test port on the tranny I'm getting over 300 iv got a built tranny aftermarket true cool cooler and the oil is a perfect red not burnt there's no way the Trans is running that temp. Oil temp same thing still over three hundred with a reading from the port right ubove the filter. Motors running a steady water temp its not over heating egts are in the sixes while driving there's no way I'm running that hot. I know 245 250 is hot so I'm gonna change the oil and check the cooler and well go from there. What temps are you guys seeing and where are u reading from is there a port on the oil resivor I can put the sensor in to maby get a more accurate reading?

I have my transmission temperature sensor in the same port you are using. I see about 40-60 degrees over ambient. For me, that means my transmission is running around 100 since we are in the worst part of winter now. I used to monitor engine oil temp, but found the numbers were always right on with what the EOT sensor in the HPOP was reporting to the PCM, so I changed that to engine oil pressure. When I was monitoring temp, it was always within 5 degrees of ECT once the engine warmed up. For me, that was 180 - measured at the port next to the oil filter.

I would contact your gauge manufacturer - something is seriously wrong either with your installation or your gauges.

Well there's not much to go wrong with the installation it's just a wire from the sensor to the gauge lol I think this gauge is twisted its gotta be

True, but it is a resistance measurement so if one of the connections wasn't perfect, it could affect it. I had an instance where my trans temp would jump into the mid 200s and back every time I hit a railroad crossing. Turned out one of the crimp connectors didn't bite properly.

As RT said some of the Autometer guages need the threaded body of the sender to be grounded. My Ultralight directions say that the threaded body of the sendor(not where the sender wire hooks up) might need to be grounded. I'm about to wire in my trans temp guage, I'll post up with results.

My Autometer Ultralight trans temp guage did not need a ground wire on the sender to function properly FYI. It has the one sender wire going to the sender and that's it. Hope this helps.
