Default step-by-step guide on how to monitor transmission temperatures

In the video (link) of auto-mate showing how effective it is at reducing the transmission temperature, I use the Ultra-Gauge to display the temperatures (Pipe and Pan oil temp).

One of the most common questions I get asked is how to setup an an OBD2 reader to monitor the transmission temperature.

Attached is an article I wrote that provides an understanding of why you should monitor the transmission oil temperature, plus a step by step guide for setting up two of the common OBDII solutions:
  1. UltraGauge MX
  2. ScanGaugeII
The article is applicable for the Mitsubishi Pajero (NS, NT, NW, NX), Challenger (PB and PC), and Triton (MN and MQ).

I'll also add Android Torque Pro instructions in the future.
If anyone can confirm the details for the Pajero Sport - I'll add that too.

cheers Marshall

Hey Marshall.

What is the "normal" operating temp for the Jatco box?

Very nice Marshall, thanks so much. I've been wondering lately as to whether I could monitor pan temp as described in your Youtube clip but using the Scangauge. Was planning on messaging you but you've beat me to it.

Cheers,

Benny.

There isn't a specific normal temperature, rather a range.

It's too hot if above 125degC, as this is when the oil starts to deteriorate.
Below 45 degC they don't change gears quite as smoothly.

Generally around 65-75 degC is an ideal temp to have the transmission. A bit higher or lower is still fine though.

It is also worth remembering that once the load has come off the unlocked torque convertor, after climbing a steep hill and descending the other side of the hill, the ATF temperature can continue to rise because the torque convertor is not locked up when there is not accelerator input. When the torque convertor is unlocked and the vehicle is "coasting" the ATF does not circulate through the ATF coolers so the ATF is stationary and sitting in a hot torque convertor. This is done to decrease fuel consumption but at the penalty of overheating the ATF. So the ATF takes a long time to cool down, particularly in very hilly country and especially when towing.

Lockup Mate keeps the torque convertor locked up even when there is no accelerator input, this allows the ATF to circulate through the ATF coolers after the load has been reduced and results in ATF temperatures dropping rapidly. Auto Mate works slightly differently as it unlocks the torque convertor when coasting down hill, however there is a special feature that locks the torque convertor up to provide downhill ATF cooling if the ATF is over 85C. Marshall really has thought of everything!

This is just another reason why the MM4x4 Lockup Mate and Auto Mate products are superior to other torque convertor lockup kits that are on the market.
