68RFE Transmission Filter

Does anyone know what the micron rating is for the spin-on transmission filter?

I was just wondering.

I have been wondering the same thing,

I add a spin on filter to the transmission of my older vehicles with the "in pan filter" (aka screen)

Don't know the answer to your question, but have one of my own. Are there two filters on the 68? Does anyone know which ones to order from Geno's Garage? One is outrageously priced on the website, just wondering how much I should be paying for these filters.

The spin-on filter rating is about 60 microns. Actually, there is no specific rating. The performance standard for the filter specifies what percentage of particles must be removed by the filter for each pass, and that is a table with varying percentages for varying micron ratings. But it should remove the vast majority of anything 60 microns or larger. It will actually remove over half of particles 30 microns in size.

The 68RFE uses two filters: the flat sump filter (with a snout to connect it to the pump) and the spin-on cooler return filter. Don't know what Geno's or others charge. Mopar list price is $18.70 for the spin-on 05179267AC, and $33.80 for the 4x4 sump filter 05013470AC. All 2009 and later RFEs (both 2WD and 4x4) use the 4x4 sump filter. For 2008 MY and earlier, 2WD RFEs use sump filter 05015267AD, which is $35.20 list.

Transengineer is correct on the part numbers and Mopar prices. I just bought these this week. However I did talk them down on the $33.80 filter. I got it for 27.00. I had to try and hey I saved some cash.

The book says 60,000 miles if towing. Curious how many miles you guys are changing at? I'm at 22,000 now, mostly towing.

Can you get to the spin on filter without removing the pan?

Sorry, no. The cooler return filter (spin-on) is inside the pan, at the right front corner.

I changed my fluids, filters and the pan at 15K. Only because I'm old-school and wanted to get any break-in particles out of the system. To be honest, the fluid was very clean. Nothing noticable. I did the diffs & covers at the same time. Now that's where I found some break-in particles. I put Mag-Hytech covers all around. Got them from RSD. They were at my doorstep in 2 days.

just a heads up on a stupid mistake when changing trans fluid, when checking the trans fluid be sure not to hit the pos batt cable with the dip stick it will fry the alternator.
