If you order the gauge from autometer or one of those companies it will come with the temp sensor that goes into the tranny all you need to buy is the wire to run from the sensor to the gauge I used 18 gauge wire. It was the easiest gauge for me to wire up and if you get it from autometer it came with instructions with pictures on where to find that sensor. Mine normally runs between 125 and 150 degrees

If yours is an a4od, then the plug is there. It might look like the head of a bolt.
