Question Trans sending unit

I am putting in a trans temp gauge and have been told there is a factory one in the trans oil pan. if so how can I access it, where is the wire to splice into. If in fact there is not one how can I tap into the computer to get the signal.

Hi Clif, I had to modify your aol link, clicking on the link took me to a page, which exposed your aol login user name. Apparently you were logged in when you copied the link. I fixed it where it now goes to the AOL homepage.

Re: Trans sending unit

There is a temp sensor in the trans. But I think you can only access it through the OBD II port. When you check the fluid level you need to know the fluid temp to get the level correct. I wouldn't use it any way because it's used by the cars computers. BTW I looking at a kit from Summit racing with an external filter and temp gage.
