you need to find the trans cooler line that goes to the cooler. the fluid coming from the trans will be hottest there

the 4r100w trans have a port on the driverside of the case just above the pan rail to install a temp gauge.

[QUOTE=junk90xj;1765602]what year truck?

It's a 99 F250 Superduty with a V10.

What line feeds the cooler? Is it in the front or rear of the transmission?

It's the front line, but I agree with putting the temp sensor in the port on the drivers side of the tranny that's where i have mine as well as everyone that I know that has a temp gauge.
