2002 Odyssey EX
Goal: to install an aftermarket transmission fluid temperature gauge for towing purposes.
I contacted GlowShift Gauges and they recommended I accomplish this via:
The Transmission Test Port:
The Stock Sensor Location + T-fitting: "This will allow you to keep your stock sensor installed, while also allowing you to install an aftermarket temperature sensor. "
I have contact my local honda dealer and they were unable to provide the thread & bolt sizes of the ports (if one even exists) or even the stock sensor. I have searched online and cant find any information. I am trying to find if there is a test port and what size that bolt would be? If not I am trying to figure out where the stock sensor is and what would be involved with a basic T fitting to get an accurate temp read.
WHY: I am in process of adding a trans cooler and ps cooler with extra magnafine inline filters on the lower pressure sides. I do NOT plan to tow with the vehicle often but will be making a cross country trip with the family for medical residency and want to cover all my bases. If my temp is crazy high ill know to stop and give the tranny a break (or maybe even drive at night - or whatever). Without knowing the temp i feel like i am towing blind.
I would appreciate any help. Sincerest Thanks!
