Re: Tranny temp with scangauge on 5.7

Yeah those temps seem normal according to my SGII. And the xguage commands on the SGII with the tranny temps is the #2 reason I bought the SGII. #1 was for a voltmeter.

Re: Tranny temp with scangauge on 5.7

Wish I would've seen this earlier, could've got you to those codes earlier. I've been running my ScangaugeII with transmission temps in F ever since I installed it a couple of years back. :thumbsup:

Re: strange rubbing

Could be rubbing while under actual driving conditions. Your vehicle will lean in and out of turns. That might be what you're seeing - wheel rub from Jeep lean during cornering.
