Re: Transmission & Oil Temperatures

How do you guys measure the transmission & oil fluid temperatures? The stock "gauge" on the dash usually shows the coolant temp.

My dash coolant temperature gauge doesn't have numbers so I have a ScanGauge device on my OBDII port but its only capable of displaying the coolant temperature, not the transmission or engine oil temps.

I'm thinking of adding a transmission fluid temperature sensor in my transmission pan. Should I consider adding an engine oil temperature sensor too?

Engine oil and transmission temps are on the EVIC. Page up or down to the page that has tire pressures then left or right to page over to the trans or engine temps.

Your Scanguage2 has an Xguage feature that requires you to manually enter codes to setup unsupported data points. We now have 3 additional Xguage codes documented for EGT, DPF, and CAT temperatures.

Yeah but having Torque capture the data off the OBD2 bus enables me/us to log said data. Anybody know the transmission temp sensor code?

I have Torque running on Android with a bluetooth OBD2 scanner, and it shows the engine oil temp. So far it's always been within a few degrees of the coolant temp, but I haven't really pushed the system since getting my OBDII scanner. Is there a way for me to get the code of the engine oil temp sensor out of Torque?

I've been wondering about the trans temp as well. I can see it in EVIC but not in Torque. For drivetrain temps in Torque I get oil, coolant, EGT and CAT1. Looking for trans temp, fuel rail pressure and oil pressure. I know the data is there, it's just a matter of telling the ECU the right thing to get it to transmit on the bus.

I did a full extended PID scan in TorqueScan (took about 45 minutes) and came back with nothing more than what it found on standard PID's.
