Could be a bad gauge. Could be a bad ground. How long after sitting overnight does it take to read 250

IMPO I would get another gauge to check against it. With the price of transmission rebuilds it is cheap insurance to me.

i got livelink to work on the sct and it red 114.9 while my autometer was reading 210
i have 12v to the gauge and when i test it with the volt meter to the sender and the power term i get 1.39v when i test it from the power term to a real grnd i get 12v so i used the grnd term on the gauge too but it still reads way off so i will see when the new gauge gets in today
