Transmission Pressure in cooler line...

anyone know what the pressure is in the transmission cooler line? i want to hook up a pressure gauge in that line and i've had people tell me wildly different numbers - from 6# to 200#... i can't buy a gauge until i know the correct range... i found a VDO transmission temperature gauge that goes up to 400#; an Autometer engine oil pressure gauge that goes up to 100#; and an Autometer fuel pressure gauge that goes up to 35#...

According to the Repair Manual Page 14-208 Under the ATF Cooler Cleaning Section, :: The ATF-Z1 is delivered to the cooler under High pressure. Aprox. 100 Psi.

trans cooler pressure...

i have the 2007-2009 Service Manual - and page 14-208 is 'A/T Clutch Pressure Solenoid Valve B Test' with no mention of cooler line pressure...

my Service Manual page 14-238 is 'ATF Cooler Cleaning' - and it says "The cleaning procedure involves heated ATF-Z1 delivered [to the cooler] under high pressure (100 psi)."

methinks you misunderstood what your Service Manual is saying - the line pressure in the cooler line is not 100# (during normal operation), the 100# pressure is the pressure the ATF cooler cleaner applies when it is cleaning out the trans cooler in the radiator...

i still can't find a reliable number for the line pressure from the trans to the cooler - no mention in my Service Manual...

Did you install the transmission temperature gauge at the end?
