    Default Express 3500 6.0 liter tranny temp

    Does anyone know if there is a way to capture tranny temp? I have a scan gauge II and i have tried everything i can to get the temp, but nothing comes up. Ihave a roadtrek van camper that is 9600 lbs and knowing the temp in mountains would really be a help.
    lthanks

    After a year with no replies, i thought i would try this again. Are there no users out there with experience on tranny temps and scan gauge II ?

    thanks

    you will probably have to buy an aftermarket temp gauge kit. I would also install a good cooler if you haven't yet. I think if you installed one like this, you wouldn't need to worry about the temp much.

    Use a Hayden trans cooler on my G3500 and B3500 (Dodge) and have no trans issues. I do not have tranny temp gauges, though the engine temp runs noticeably lower during the warmer temps. Also I pull trailers well over 9000lbs several times a year with no trans performance issues. That trans cooler tsbrewers posted the link for certainly is impressive but I believe overkill.

    A trans shop could supply you with a custom trans line with a provision for trans temp adaptor.

    Best of luck and have a great summer.
