    I looked up some old posts regarding this... and i'm wondering if I can use an electric water temp gauge for my tranny temp? I'm thinking the density of the fluid and whatnot wouldn't be that much of a temp difference that I would care. With the funds I have now for gauges i have to go with the cheapo kind and no cheapo brands make tranny temps, but I have no gauges at the moment except for speedo and fuel.. what are your thoughts? :confused:

    If you can get the sensor threaded into the tranny pan, line, etc. then it should work fine. The sensor doesn't care what is being measured. :cool1:

    I plan on using this one from Summit. It is $35.00 and includes the sending unit.
