Trans Temp sender.

Alright im new to this stuff so bear with me. I installed my trans temp gauge last night. when i was screwing it into the port on the transmission. could not get a socket on the main plug so i started tightening off the 3/8th head on the actual sender. i didn't realize that it wast completely attached to the whole unit. now the 3/8th hex head is spinning inside the main plug its the nut behind where the ring terminal would go on. ( I hop this makes some sense) ill post a pic with an arrow at the bottom)
So i drove around after and the tranny climbed to 210 and stays there. doesn't go down if i let it idle in neutral either. this makes me think the sender might be broken after when i did. anyone ever made this mistake and had the sender still work or could it be improper grounding?. or does it actually sound broken? The Transmission has been shifting fine since i've owned the truck and it still does shift fine. sorry for making a stupid confusing post home someone can help.

Re: Trans Temp sender.

You broke it, buy another one. Then buy a wrench or socket that will fit it correctly.

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.
