Hey, any recommendations for a stationary (not via cell phone) transmission temperature monitor that won't break the bank?
Scangage II was recommended by another person. I think Jon DZ Adventuring is using the one like it. I just confirmed on their siteeI've been using a ScanGauge on various vehicles since about 2005. Easily moves from one OBDII vehicle to another. Reads/clears codes and a whole lt more, including TFT. Plug-n-play. Not sure about the 9 speed.....an email to them will probably get you an answer. About $150, iirc.
This is long overdue, but I finally got and tested Scangauge II. I observed F170 or lower around town. During the overlanding trip that involved a lot of gravel roads and climbing the temps were around 185-190 with one occasion when it went up to 204 on a steep and long climb. This is just me in the car and some gear, but not too much.Whichever monitor you decide to get, let us know what 9 speed temps you see, driving conditions, etc.👌
You can obviously tell later the difference but if you need more cooling like mentioned you could mount something like this 6" fan with your own switch so you can turn on just for the stress periods. I'd probably opt more for the flex-a-lite based on name brand recognition.Speed was variable due to pot holes and rough road but between 5-18 mph. No AT cooler yet. AT cooler and front skid plate will be installed soon (as soon as my mechanic can get me in)
