trans temp sensor
« on: October 13 2015, 10:59:58 AM »
Does it make a difference if I put the sensor in the lower or upper location on the lines that go to the cooler from the tranny.

The one coming back will be cooler, or at least that is the theory.  I think I would want it in the before the cooler or hotter line. I'd have to look and see which one that is as I don't know right of hand.

If it is an electric gauge you could get another sender and run em both with a switch and see how well the cooler is working.

Got the tranny out this afternoon..... bell housing bolts were a bitch, don't know how I'll get those back in, specifically the pass side top one. Also there is a unconnected ground strap hanging at the top, I assume that belongs on the drivers side top bolt and someone previously didn't put it back.

Stupid question time, can I flip the tranny over to remove the pan and replace filter? Assuming I can but figured id ask?

Thanks!!!

While the trans is out take a bfh and fold down the pinch weld on the trans tunnel. The belt housing bolts will be much easier then.

I use a swivel socket for the bellhousing bolts...and a super long extension. Air ratchet makes life easy.

Yeah I had to use my 2 longest extensions together to get them. Will be buying one long one for installation. Can I flip the tranny to take off pan and change filter? Would be easier but dont know if that would screw up anything....pr obably stupid question :icon_redface:

Get the fluid out or it will exit the vent when you turn it over.

Buy a long wobble extension and you can get to the upper bolts from the bottom.  Reinstall that ground strap.

Are all brands of Dex VI the same? Price ranges by a couple bucks so if so I'll get cheapest
