Bad Sending Unit ?

My girlfriend was driving my truck today and i git a call, she said that the tranny temp gauge on the dash was pegged out. I asked her a couple of questions and had her bring up the tranny temp on the EDGE display and she said it was at zero. I went to her work and checked the fluid level and cleared the codes( PO713) and let her drive it home. When she got home, about 8 miles down the road the temp on the dash gauge was pegged again, but the edge seemed to be stuck on 101. I crawled under the truck and grabbed both trann lines. One was about 1oo and the other was cold. Do i have a bad sending unit? The edge should read off of the same unit, why would one be hot and one be cold ?

I dont think its the cooler, the pan and the lines felt normal. The fluid was good and smells fine. I think its something electrical. Does anybody know what the sending unit is supposed to ohm out at ?

The tranny gauge on the dash is a pos. It never reads right.

I know, but it shouldn't be pegged on hot with the check gauges light on.

Hell, I am impressed that she was looking at the guage, you might want to keep her!!

My wife barely notices the fuel guage, she actually told me that she didnt know what any of the thingys on the dash were for, she thought that they were there to fill up space.

The temp sending unit is in the pan and can be changed by itself. Ford has plenty in stock. They fail a lot.
