Hi guys. I am getting an ATF cooler for my Persona, sourced and gonna by it. Been wanting it since the first year of ownership.
Because whenever I go over 4000rpm during a hot day, it will rev another 200rpm just to change from 3 to 4. Not sure torque converter is slipping or the gears are.

Now, I was thinking during the process of fitting the ATF cooler, I wanna install ATF Temp Sensor simultaneously. Found a few on eBay, free shipping as well.

I am hoping not to drill my oem magnetic ATF sump nut. And drilling my ATF pan is out of the question as it is 10+ bolts away and very hard to reach.

Later on, I will do coolant temp as well but I got that figured it out.

These are ranging from -50C to 125C which is good enough, max is 150C.




If there are any cheaper or equivalent alternatives, please do say so.

Let me have a look at what the ATF sensor looks like. Maybe can retrofit onto the cooler itself.

I think if you can find an adaptor you probably could hook it up to the output hose of the gearbox. Or just buy another size 14/17 bolt with the same thread and drill it la.

Where it is fitted will show different temperature, right?

Cooling fan is too much for me. Too cooling later shifting also shit.
Natural air cool is enough for me.

Yeap. They usually put at the pan.
Im thinking of putting before the cooler. Just like coolant temp.

stupidcar, try using lubegard platinum atf addictive, might solve your problem. It solved my cefiro's morning sickness which takes a second to shift into D, i dont know if it might solve your problem though. This product is worth every cent and so far i haven seen any bad reviews about it so far.

VR, SF and the gang intro-ed me as well but its not because I'm worried about the tranny.
Been running it for 2 years, over heated or not only God knows.
I would like to install because of the numbers haha. And also to know how its working.
AND also I'm fitting an ATF cooler so I wanna do it together.

As bro. hex mentioned, I spoke to a parallel importer of lubegurad and he did mention it helps to lubricate the gear box so it will run cooler also....:driver:
