The data is available in the ECU, you just have to 'tell' the Scangauge how to read it. The specific letters/numbers in the "X-Gauge" description are data addresses, etc. and the math to interpret and display the data on the Scangauge screen.

*All* 3rd gen 4Runners have the trans temp sensor, but only the '99+ ones can report it out via the OBD-II port.

small little update. managed to get the 70268 B&M cooler kit installed:



i was using this how to guide as a good piece of info for what to expect:
B&M 70268 SuperCooler Transmission Cooler Install on a 3rd Gen

Its a great guide, but here are a couple of tips on where i deviated from it:
-i can get goodyear 250 psi hose at cost so that is what i went with. i bought 5 feet of 3/8" ID hose, but you need 6' to do the feed and the return line. i ended up using the good year stuff for the feed line, and what came in the kit as the return line. the good year hose is MUCH nicer than whatever is in the kit. i will keep an eye on the return line, but as soon as it gives me any issue, its coming out and being replaced with the better good year stuff.

-the soft hoses that go to the hardline on top of the front subframe are an absolute PITA to get off. heat cycling through out the years make this stuff damn near impossible to get off; you arent going to pull it off. it being in such a cramped place doesnt help either when you are trying to cut the hose off. i ended up finding a razor blade with a hook on it and that eventually cut off the soft line. im not sure what this type of razor blade is used for, but if you google 'razor blade with hook', you will see what i am talking about.

-the zipties that come in the kit are super aggressive. you only want to be running this through your radiator one time. we were originally going to feed it through the front to use as a 'guide' so i could feed it back through in the same way the guide linked above does. the problem is once you feed it through the front, we noticed it was chewing up the rad fins pretty good. so we just installed the zip ties this way.

-i recommend you mount the cooler FIRST and get your lines all setup. it was abundantly clear that once i had everything in front of me and the grill off, the cooler needed to go in first and then route the lines. we chose this way of install because it allowed us to ensure the cooler would fit with the lines on, and we got all of the hose routing done once the cooler was installed. this basically made it so once it was time to unplug the hard lines and pop the new ones in, the hardlines would only be exposed for a minute or two, minimizing the potential ATF spillage and keeping the mess down to a minimum.

-the good year hose and the hose in the kit i used would not go on for the hardlines. it would get right past the nipple and stop. i had to use a heat gun to persuade it to go on all the way. if you use this hose, you will need a heat gun to get the hose real hot and expand. once its hot, wrap it in a rag and get it pushed onto the hardline ASAP. the hose cools down fairly quickly and even when its warm, its not hot enough to get it on the hard line all the way.

-i didnt replace my radiator because it looked fine although i have no idea how old it is. at 240k, i want zero chance of pink milkshake, so i just capped the radiator trans cooler lines all together. im surprised people install these and still loop through the radiator; which IMO is the main reason to do this swap and eliminate the possibility of pink milkshake all together.

also went up to the snow yesterday:


my resistors from euro land came in last week. although there is just one problem. they are way too small. there is no way i am going to be plugging this into the airbag clip. so much for not cutting off that clip. i dont think we are going to want to try to soldier this in the car, so i will likely have to make a harness with a resistor on it and connect with spade connectors or something. i have 2 1 ohm resistors and im not sure if they will fit in the slots together, much less stay in there. i might try that before committing to cut off the clip.

You are describing a carpet blade for a utility knife...

As for the resistors - as long as they are the correct ohms and they fit, you are fine. In normal usage, they do not get full battery voltage applied (that would otherwise burn them up). The only time the do get full battery voltage is when the squib would be ignited (an accident) - at which point you don't care if the resistor burns up!

thank you. i can never remember what type of blade that is.


the issue with the resistors is i need one two ohm resistor to bridge the two holes on the plug together. you see it in this video at 6:45 in:
YouTube

you see the guy bridge the clip with a single resistor. the clips you see in my hand will not bridge between the two clips. they are super small. id have to put each of one in the female clip for the super small resistors. the smallest resistor i have is a 2.2 ohm. so if i put both in, id already be over double the limit needed for ohms. i cant find normal sized 2 ohm resistors locally and im not ordering 500+ on amazon to use one (especially when i have what i need already). i also have 2 regular sized 1 ohm resistors. i essentially have two options:

-attempt to push both normal sized resistors in and see how they fit (i will likely do this first). although i am not sold on this and i think they may come loose over time. if this works it will be awesome and means i dont need to cut the clip off

-create a harness for the super small resistors and cut the clip off on the harness and join with spade clips. this is what i will probably end up doing if the first option does not work.

im all ears if you have any other suggestions.

Internal Error or Mouser Electronics - Electronic Components Distributor and find what you need. Should be ~$10 with shipping for what you need. I believe I used 5W sized resistors on my WRX when I removed the side airbags. The recommended resistance on that one was 3.3ohm. Not sure what the Toyota system expects for resistance.

I came up with this setup for the gauges. I used electrical conduit and cut them at 10 angles to act as bezels to angle the gauges toward the driver slightly and got a piece of plastic from a stereo install shop for the backer plate. The rest is just small fabbed up brackets from aluminum stock.

can you post a different link? what you posted says the link isnt good and takes me to the main page. i dont even know what im looking for, so i dont know what to search.

Weren't you looking for a place to mount a trans temp gauge a few posts back? Maybe I misread.

What airbags are you eliminating? Do you know the resistances required? I can link to specific parts if you need - I just linked to the two major electronics suppliers in the US that also sell to consumers (main pages, like you said).

ah, i see now. thank you. i am likley going to just buy a scangage as i have a 99, so the scangage can tap into the ecu and tell me ATF temps. i am basically sold on this thing due to how easy it is to install. plus i get three other slots on the scan gauge.

your design would be great 3d printed in ABS.

just the drivers. i was told i need a 2 ohm resistor to turn the light off. im trying to avoid cutting off the plug if at all possible.

I run a Scangauge. It's "OK" but feels a bit antiquated these days. There may be more modern OBDII readers out there. I'd check and see if Aeroforce Interceptor supports your model year 4Runner. Much nicer. I ran one in my old Challenger.

Yes, I wish there'd been things like 3d printed ABS back when I built that housing for the gauges LOL.

Awesome! The B&M Trans cooler is an awesome upgrade.

Did you run it in series or bypassed the radiator?

You should be able to use this:

Internal Error

Just stuff the leads in the connector. Protect it from grounding out, zip tie it in place or similar, and you'll be all good.

why do you say its dated? are the readings on a scangage not accurate?

i bypassed it. no idea on mileage on radiator but its not leaking so i dont need to replace it. i want zero chance of a pink milkshake. this is the only way to eliminate it.

oh, you are talking an actual resistor, i thought you were going to link something that was more plug and play. 5 dollar shipping on a 48 cent part. ouch!

The data is accurate, it's just looks a bit out of place IMO in the interior and I think there are nicer looking more modern options available. Like I said, I have one mounted on my steering column, so it does work. I use it to track miles left on the tank, timing advance, mpg, and something else I can't remember LOL. I got it like 12 years ago and have been meaning to get something updated.
