I was driving on base the over day right after we had one of our freak rain storms here that dumps a ton of water in about 30 minutes. There was a huge puddle I had to drive through and my tranny temp went from about 100 up to 160 or so then about a minute later it was back down to 100. how would driving through water make this happen? it was about 12 inches of water.

I would bet the issue was related to a wet sensor/wireing and the tranny temp never really changed just the guage reading.

I figured that I was just curious as to why the gauge reading went up so fast.

Well I'm curious though. I didn't install my trans temp gauge, but doesn't only have a temp sending unit to the gauge and that's it?

I wouldnt be surprised, a foot of water probably did just get wet. If it keeps doing it then I would be concern and starting thinking other possible reason.

Your right,but they have a connector near the sensor.Mine is about 3" away so it can get wet ans most likely screw with the reading
