How to check the Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor. There is a reason for it. The sensor can skew ,a skewed sensor will mean either the computer thinks that the fluid is either too cold and thick for shifting or the computer will want to go into hot mode. Hot mode means no OD. Overdrive. Overdrive means no mechanical coupling.

Use an infra temp gun. There are two windows to a typical gun. the top window is the laser. It gives you something to point with. The bottom larger window is the infra red. This is what actually takes the temperature. Temp guns are getting cheap.

Place the gun on a hot transmission cooler line and compare the reading to the gauge.

you are correct as a single blade connection is mostly the temp gauge sender as the gauge grounds out through the variable resistance in the sender unit
most coolant temp sensor units have 4 wires in a square shaped plug and are generally in the same vicinity
I am at loss as to any transmission problems coming from a coolant sensor problem as the purpose of that unit is to report the engine coolant temp so that the ECM can adjust the air/fuel mix, turn on the radiator fans
There may be an transmission temp sensor to report to the ECM when the transmission overheats and that would put on the engine light
It appears that the recurring problem has again surfaced
but check harness connections for corroded pins , water ingress, and check the transmission control module for connections and operation
you may also check the vacuum actuator and hose for leaks and correct operation as that unit will attempt to change ratios as the throttle setting alters

2001 dodge stratus engine temperature gauge spikes occasionally


Look for a loose connection to the temperature sender unit on the motor.
If all connections OK, you may need a new temp sender unit.

No current going into the fan switch or fan motor on a 2005 dodge 2500 pickup. Where are the fuses located for these two?


There is a relay located in the engine. and there is a relay for the fan in the wiring going to the fan. You are going to have to trace the wiring from the fan back to the point of where the relay is located.

Good Luck
