Transmission Temperature Gauge for a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser That Doesnt Drill Into Pan


my fj has a trans temp warning lite.. i would like to have a trans cooler and a gauge. Is there a way to install without drilling a hole in the pan for the temp gauge pickup? thanks,


Expert Reply:

If you are getting a trans warning light on your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser then that would be something more like low fluid or a leak and not necessarily the temperature.

The Derale Temperature Gauge Kit # D13009 requires that a hole be drilled into the pan but the Derale Remote Transmission Filter Kit w/ Temperature Gauge # D13091 will help you avoid drilling into the pan since the temperature gauge installs on the remote mounting bracket.

Either way, if you don't typically work on vehicles and can't diagnose the problem yourself I highly recommend taking your FJ Cruiser in to a shop to have it looked at.
