Hi there everyone ....

I wasn't sure whether this question would qualify for the DIY stickies so I thought I would start asking here first ... in between uninstalling and reinstalling DRL's for my Kizi, with the front bumper off, I've taken the opportunity to investigate a hook up of a temperature gauge to monitor the tranny oil ... refer to pictures of my current OEM oil cooler and the simple eyelet type "EZ Fit" sensor of the temp monitor.

Does anyone have an idea of how best to hook this EZ Fit sensor to the inlet or outlet stems where the CVT hoses fit? I don't want to have to disconnect the inlet or outlet hoses given I don't want to deal with CVT fluid expelling (for the record my tranny oil was flushed and filters serviced/replaced a year ago by a tranny specialist). The cooler inlet and outlet stems are 10mm (3/8") in diameter. I'm thinking of using some heat-conducting adhesive or putty of sorts, but I'm not familiar with these.

Any advice appreciated.

Obd2 Scanner Is More Practical Option

Are 2 Apps Made Full View How CVT Works

CVTz50 Made For Jatco Transmission
And SZ Viewer Made For Suzuki This Is Best Option For Me More Complete But CVTz50 Is More Accurate In CVT Reading

I’ve actually done quite a bit of research in past year about the OBD2 option - I actually already have an OBD2 connected (Gofar) - I cant find the CVT temp option. That’s why I’m going down this path.

I did read elsewhere previously that this CVT temp isn’t available for Suzuki’s Jatco, unlike for the CVT in the WRX.

However I’m thrilled to hear otherwise! Any recommendation on an OBD2 scanner one knows will read the CVT temp here?
