I'm thinking of installing a transmission fluid temperature gauge and was wondering if anyone knows where the best place is to install the sender? Is there a quick and easy plug anywhere that I could use?

I dunno but could you T off of a transmission fluid tube? I'm not sure what the sensor looks like.

But please post pics when you do.

DAG... i ended up going to the hardware store and buying a 1/2 T-fitting and two 1/2 hose fittings and put it on the "out" side of the trans cooler lines next to the radiator.

Here are some crapy pics. The best I can do with a camera phone and a car being 4 inches off the ground.

I have a trans temp sensor mounted to the cooler lines of the trans so I know how hot its running. Thats the only way I found to mount it. It works fine. Its a AutoMeter trans gauge and probe.
