there is no trans cooling sensor.
the plug in the front is for an automatic dimmer which was an option and your car amy not have the option.

as far as the trans slipping, you have an internal pressure issue. you need a trans shop to help you with that and give you a bid.

The sensor that you might be refering to is the outside ambient temperature sensor used the the climate control system. Roy is correct (as always) the transmission does not use this sensor and your concern is not related.
