    Default obd ii transmission temp

    I am trying to figure out the best way to install a transmission temp gauge on my 1996 k1500 suburban. Does the obd ii port have the transmission temp or not? I was thinking of getting a blutooth adapter and maybe torque-bhp for my android phone. Any ideas?

    I want to install it to see if I can maybe tow od instead of 3, at least part of the time. I just towed a 4200lb trailer and got about 6mpg! It is a small toy hauler (8.5' wide x 10' tall, 16' ft box, 20'overall length). I am also planning on changing the plugs, gas cap, airing up the tires, cleaning the air filter... Maybe I can get the regular everyday mileage up from 12 mpg.

    On my 97 I installed a B&M Transmission Temperature Guage Kit part #80212. The kit had everything I needed, and was very easy to install. I installed the sending unit in the hot line and am considering putting a second kit in to moniter the cool line. The kit comes with a dash mounting pod for the gauge which I used, but when I put in the second gauge I'm going use a a-pillar dual gauge pod.
