Transmission Temperature Manifold

I ordered an Auto Meter Trans. Temp. Manifold, 3/8" Adapter #2286, for my 07' Ram. Since I placed my order I have discovered they also have one in 5/16". Did I order the right one for my truck? My truck is a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 QC with the 454RFE trans.

Need the 5/16". Exchange it or just buy some reducers.

Thats my luck, I ordered the wrong part number from JEGS, so I will contact them to see if I can return it for the 5/16" adapter. Thanks for your help.

I was looking on another forum and a member said they used the Autometer #2286, 3/8" Manifold Adapter on their 2007 Dodge Ram 1500. As soon as I can find a dry spot, so I can get under my truck, I will measure the diameter of my trans. cooler lines. I need to locate which line is the one that goes to the cooler.

It's a 3/8 was just under Bills truck. 5/16 is way small for a cooler line on a ram. The pressure sebsor however I believe is a 5/16 hole but that's not what your tapping into.

Thanks, I thought the lines should be 3/8", that's what I ordered, should be here Monday.

I measured the trans cooler tubing, it is 3/8" diameter, so I did order the correct adapter. I finally had some time, been in Louisiana, when I returned last week, to install my AutoMeter Trans Fluid Temp Manifold Adapter. Now my AutoMeter Trans Temp Gauge is functional.

After driving the truck, reaching normal operating temp, the gauge read about 145*, when i did a rolling hard acceleration, the temp. went up to 150*, but as soon as I was cruising at 60 MPH, the temp. returned to about 145*. Truck has a little over 69K miles on it. I am very happy with it. I will have to see how it does with my Utility trailer in tow.

Well this afternoon in traffic, the trans temp reached 175 to 180*, a bit higher than yesterday. It went down to 160* on the Interstate traveling 70 MPH. I guess that is still normal for idling in 85* weather.
