Your ScanGauge features the exclusive X-GAUGE™ Programmable Gauge System that provides you a method to tap into this additional information. The feature is available on Scangauge-II, Scangauge-D and Scangauge-KR. You can monitor parameters such as transmission temperature, trip data and fuel economy information.
How do I check my transmission temperature?
Install the scan tool, start the vehicle and look for the transmission temperature. The fluid temperature should be between the 185- and 194-degree marks with an idle of 600 to 800 rpms. Remove the bolts and clips from the front fender well on the driver’s side, and locate the transmission fill plug; remove it.
Does blue driver read transmission temperature?
Unfortunately transmission temperature is not part of the OBDII standard live data set and is not currently supported by BlueDriver.
What does a transmission temperature light look like?
Most modern vehicles will illuminate the transmission temperature warning light in different colors depending on the severity of the problem. Yellow usually means the issue is less urgent while red will mean it’s very urgent and you should probably get off the road immediately.
How can I tell if my transmission is overheating?
Is My Transmission Overheating?
- A sudden experience of a burning odor inside and outside the vehicle.
- The gears “slipping” when accelerating or decelerating.
- A feeling of hesitation or delayed gear shift when you are driving.
- Any grinding or shaking sensation that occurs while accelerating or while idling.
Do you check transmission fluid hot or cold?
Transmission fluid expands in heat and in order to receive accurate results, it must be under normal operating conditions. If the fluid is checked when the engine is cold, you may get false results indicating the fluid is low. Allow the engine to continue running while you check the level.
Does BlueDriver read transmission codes?
If you need to get yourself a scanner, I would seriously consider the BlueDriver® because not only can you read and clear the typical check engine light codes, you can also read and clear airbag, transmission, ABS, and other module codes (for Ford, GM, and Chrysler vehicles).
Does OBD fusion work with BlueDriver?
OBD Fusion was one of the first OBD scan apps (once known as Touchscan, which is still the name of OC Tech’s Windows software) and is still one of the best. The real strength it has over BlueDriver is that it will work with almost any OBD-II adapter: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or even USB.
Can BlueDriver check alternator?
If the vehicle’s ECU is reporting charging system related codes BlueDriver will read them, otherwise you can also monitor alternator voltage using the “Control Module Voltage” datapoint if it is supported by your vehicle – what do you have? 1 of 1 found this helpful.
What is normal temperature for transmission?
Normal operating temperature for an automatic transmission is about the same as the engine temperature, i.e., about 195°F. The temperature inside the torque converter, while pulling a big load from a standing start, could easily rise above 350°F. Fluid breakdown often results in harsh shifting and slip-bump concerns.
What is a low transmission temperature?
The ideal temperature for it is 175 degrees, plus or minus 25 degrees, and when the transmission gets below zero degrees, it gets too thick. The fluid can also fail to lubricate parts when it is too cold, wearing parts down unnecessarily.
Is 200 degrees hot for a transmission?
The ideal temperature for your transmission is 200 degrees. For every 20 degrees past 200, the lifespan of your transmission is reduced by a factor of 2. In other words, if you hit 220 degrees, you can expect to get about half the normal life out of your transmission.
How do you cool down a transmission?
Allowing the car to idle in neutral, while sitting at red lights, in congested traffic or at rail road tracks, reduces the strain on the transmission, allowing the transmission to cool.
Why is my transmission temp high?
Temperatures begin to increase when your transmission of lubricating fluid is scarce. This breaks down the liquid within your transmission, generating even more friction, but instead of forgiving your palms, bits of metal scrap together, seals break, and many components approach destruction.
What do you do when your transmission is over temp?
What to do when your transmission is overheating:
- Stop driving immediately and let your transmission cool down.
- Make a note of what you were doing, where you are, what’s happening (noises, etc.)
- After cooling down, start back up & gingerly continue on your way.
