    I dont really want to or mess with running lines to a mechanical tranny temp guage, so does anything think that a electrical guage will work ok, like give me a close reading? Oh its on a 98 awd v8...heard bad things about the tranny in the v8s..just wanting to keep a closer eye on it..

    I use an electrical tranny temp gauge with no problems,

    Taking care of your tranny is always a good thing... a couple of other things you might want to consider are:

    complete flush and change to synthetic ATF
    an external tranny filter

    Good luck......

    You might find it useful to read the thread mentioned above,

    My sender is mounted on the remote tranny filter manifold,

    I'm just taking the A4LD out of my 92. When I got the manual for the transmission, I found there was a plug on the side for a pressure test. Seems like a pretty good spot to put the temp sender. If, you don't want to get involved with a lot of plunbing.
