Tranny Temp sensor

Well as i mentioned in one of my other posts, i was looking at putting a transmission temp guage in my truck. So ive gotten most of the stuff figured out, but today my brother said someone at work mentioned there being a plug that i can put the sensor in without having to drill my pan. Just pull out a plug and screw the sensor in its place. Does anyone know where this plug is? If anyone can snap a pic that would be amazing, i just dont wanna pull out the wrong plug. Any help will be great.

the only plug on the pan i can think of is the drain plug. if your truck even has one of those. not sure if my 05 has one either. i hope he's not talking about this plug. The wires would be in harm's way hanging down there.

See if you can find an EDGE programmer on e-bay

It will give you 4 gauges of your choice in one, utilizing engines PCM

Dont want to get an edge, i have a custom guage pod that im making for my dash that is mostly finished. The spot that the person had mentioned was a spot on the case of the transmission, not in the pan, cause ya mine doesnt have a drain plug. Although if i did end up having to tap my pan for the sensor i was going to install a drain plug as well.

That explains
if you thinking of taping it in
Than I would go for deeper pan and do all the work before you install it

Can't wait to see the pod design

Hopefully it should be done in a day or 2. The pod is turning out pretty decent. I still dont understand why autometer doesnt make one for that spot on the truck, seems like kind of a no brainer location.

Im just curious, i was under the truck looking at things, and there was a spot on the drivers side of the tranny case that had a little plug and says line on it, is there where i would put the sensor?

Tranny temp gauges are very useful.....I would have suggested the scangauge II but you already have things in motion.

good luck.
