It will read not only Trans temp but practically every other sensor on the powertrain. It can also check for codes.
Below is a picture of it's display. Simple one plug hook up to the OBDII port under the dash.

WOW !! Good call on the ScanGauge II! So much easier than the route I was thinking about, and it shows so many other readings besides the one I was after. Advanced Auto matched the $111.99 online price out the door, no waiting by the mailbox! Thanks for your help.

Back 900 pages or so.. I think it was for gas. But wither way it is a good resource.

I was interested to see the 215 on the Durmax.. Mine never got above 170 in the mountains, but good to hear the max temp to look out for.

Excellent. You can use that promo code all the time on other products and pick them up in the store. I do it all the time.
I'm guessing you found the ScanGauge website with the listing of X-gauges that you can enter in? You can also piggy back them for 8 display.
It's a priceless piece for guys like me running a Ford 6.0 diesel. Oil/water temp delta is a biggy.

Yes, I found the X-gauge codes on the website. I'm not sure what you mean by piggy backing for 8 display. Sorry, I'm from the age where you drill a hole in the pan and stick a sending unit in it and run a wire up to the dash and attach it to a cheap gauge. I put it in my GMC 1500 gasser to monitor the tranny temps while towing. I can't find the oil temp on mine, computer must not register oil temp. It's a great tool just the same. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Piggyback or daisy chain I mean you can hook 2 together with an additional cord so you don't have to scroll through to check other readings. In essence you have 2 live displays coming from the one OBDII port.


So, what kind of trans Temps are you seeing?

I've been using ScanGaugeII for 10 years. Very useful device.

I'm following you now! I don't need to see 8 readings at once, so I'll just use it as is for now. As far as temps go, it's been between 98 to 130 degrees not towing. Cold weather here in K.C. keeping it down I think. I'm not sure what max temp should be for it either. Any idea?

250 (might be 230) I think. My 1500 would get to 205 at its highest when towing.

GCVW ambient air temp, and hills will all play part but on flat land towing with my Ford it's around 165-180. Pulling long 8% grade it will creep up around 200+. Keep it below 230 for any extended time and your fine.

Best thing to monitor your truck is a CTS 2... but for the Allison 100 above outside temp. But you don't want her to get over 230 pulling a hill. Your clutchs will hate you and it might Limp the tranny
