Trans. Temp Question

I just intstalled gauges in the A-pillar. Boost/EGT/Trans temp and Diff temp. The trans temp is reading about 120 and the Diff temp is just reading 100. Is this normal for just driving aound town not towing anything. Also do I need to coat the sensors with anyting to protect them from the elements.

Thanks. So I dont need to worry about the sensors in the snow and salt. Sorry for the silly questions I'm new to the diesel scene and the gauges are my first mod.

Also depends on the cooler

The temps will also vary depending on the size of your cooler. I have the HUGE 6.0 tranny cooler that is about 3 times bigger than the stock 7.3 cooler. I tow a 9500# fiver through the mountains and I average65-75 above outside temp. This past summer when it was flurting with 100*outside the tranny temps NEVER went above 170. Mostly averaged 140-160, but remember yours could vary. Hope this helps. Dave
