48RE Transmission Teardown Inspection, 2006 Dodge Ram SRT10 - Transmission Repair
This is a teardown inspection of an 48RE transmission of a 2006 Dodge Ram
SRT10 truck. These trucks are made to have fun...but that can come with a
price. As you can see here the consequences of all that fun. But, Are'nt
that's what these trucks are for? All I can do is to do my best to outlast
the warranty period...and then some. How many sets of tires before I see
this truck again? A lot, I'm hoping. Like always, Like it, Subscribe, and
Share it...Thanks for watching.

How to adjust bands and change automatic transmission fluid
This is a demonstration of how I tightened the bands of my automatic
transmission and changed the transmission fluid and filter. The vehicle is
a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4X4 with a 46RE transmission. This repair was done
after a transfer case repair which required removal of the propeller
shafts. With the front shaft out of the way, access to the front band
adjustment screw was better than normal. It is possible to do this with the
shaft in place, but access for demonstration is not as good. For details of
how the propeller shaft is removed, see my other videos on repairing a
Dodge transfer case oil leak.
Note that the details of how this is done, especially the torque settings
and the number of rotations backward after ideal torque, are very specific
to the 46RE transmission. Be sure the locknut is backed off enough that it
doesn't bottom out when the adjustment screw is tightened. Before ever
doing this type of procedure yourself, you should consult the dealers
repair manual and verify the specific procedure in your car.

1995 Dodge Cummins 12V Automatic 47RH stock converter slippage
stock 47RH trans with stock torque converter, the stock converter has a
very high stall speed causing engine to be pegged near the governor when @
full throttle. Notice the torque converter lockup clutch slippage at the
1:30 minute mark, it shouldn't rev to 2,000rpm then drop as I let off the
throttle- it should stay at 1700RPM and slowly gain as the truck picks up
speed. Stock Power, bed full of firewood 5% hill
1998 Dodge Ram 46RE Teardown and Rebuild Part 1
Here's a clip of the teardown to bare bones due to a failed torque
converter. This is the beginning of a complete teardown and rebuild
unfortunatly. Almost all of the parts are flawless. There's no wear,
scarring, pitting or other damage to either the hard parts(gears, shafts,
drums, planetary gears, ect.) or soft parts(Friction plates, bands, seals,
ect.). For fun and added insurance I'll install a complete seal kit. The
things I need to replace are, the torque converter, a scared reverse clutch
drum, pump gears, a few bearings . I have to also replace the overdrive
piston retainer, but other than that, everything else is in exellent shape.
Dodge Shifting Problems
2005 Dodge Cummins. I'm trying to figure out what is making it shift like
it is. It will hold the RPM's too high for too long and still gain speed
slowly. Once it hits third gear though, it works like it should. Watch
the RPM's and the tach. You can hear the motor and the speed goes up
really slow until it shifts and then it accelerates like normal.
Just in case ya'll miss my comment, I got it fixed about a week after I
made the video. It was the torque converter that fried and took the rest
of the internals with it when it went. Took an entire rebuild to fix. I'm
not a fan of Dodge's automatic.
