Tow/Haul light flashing

Tonight i was driving home from menards with a truck full of electrical crap for a shop.

i didn't even notice it at the time, but one of my buddy's brought it to my attention. that my tow haul light was flashing, then i look at my tft gauge on my factory dummy gauges and its pegged! at this point i was freaking i generally dont have my TFT PID pulled up on my edge unless im towing, so i scrambled to pull it up. it said something crazy like 230+- degrees. then it went down to 85 degrees out of nowhere. so i kept driving because i knew it was sensor related and my trans wasnt actually self destructing. it proceeded to fluctuate from 0 - 200 degrees the rest of the drive. also P0713. i drove it again later tonight and it was fine .
how much of a pain is it to change?

Mine is like that as well and needs to be changed. All you have to do is drop the tranny pan and its the wired sensor in the middle. I think the sensor itself is only like 15 bucks too.

Think I'm going to have a guy in the shop change it out for me. Its been over 100 degrees here everyday for the last week. Im not about to do it myself This morning it was reading low. So it's shot.
