    Hey guys.
    I have read that you can get transmission temp with the ELM327 and the Torque App. The main thing I wanted it for was for transmission temp for towing. I have been reading through tons of old write ups on this subject and have yet to be able to fine one where someone got it to work.

    Can someone point me to the correct and current info on how to get the Trans Temp to work if it really does work at all?

    Thanks ahead of time.

    Thank you! I think I had found that right as you replied. I entered it all and it seems to pick up data now. Guess I will just have to play with it and see what happens.
    Looks to me like that is the code for the pan temp. Is that what most people are using, just the pan temp?
    What is a safe temp range?
    Thanks again for the help!

    OP Pan temp is what you want to keep an eye on for sure as its the main fluid temp after the coolers, but torque converter out is also a good indication of the direction things are going (as it will fluctuate way faster and way more than pan temp).

    As far as operating temps, pan temp idealy is between 140-175 under normal operating conditions, with short bursts up to 200ish is fine.
