Borg Warner updated gov.pressure solenoid 48RE

Just a heads up guys!!! TRANSTAR Industries inc. have these BorgWarner Heavy duty updated solenoids in stock at most locations and if not they are only a few days out!! Just purchased one yesterday from the Transtar in Livonia, Mich. and it cost me $45.90 shipped to my house! The number to the local Michigan Transtar is (800)356-1590. If you live in another state you can go to the Transtar website(Transmission Parts - Transtar Industries Inc.) and click the LOCATIONS icon and find the closest one to you!! The part number through transtar is 12432A, but it is the 50185 solenoid and there price is $30.00 plus shipping and tax.. Took me a while to find one at a resonable price, so I figured this might help others!!!!!

Wow! Wish I woulda waited a few more days. I just dropped $77 on one shipped to me from Whatever It Takes in Cinci, OH. I was shocked when he told me the price cause I had read on here about guys getting them for less than $50 shipped but that was a few months ago. I figured the demand has been increasing and supply diminishing over the past couple months and was the reason the price was so high. I said something to the sales guy I talked to and he kind of acted like he thought I was "telling a story" when I mentioned others here on the forum were getting them for ~$45-50.

Oh well, burn me once....

the most common reason most replace (like myself) is to cure the "shuttle shift"

The BW 50185 governor solenoid has a significantly stronger motor with a stiffer armature spring to better control line pressure & prevent shuttle shift.

It also does not use a permanent magnet like the OE, so it doesn't attract metal contaminants from the transmission oil.

Those features along with a bigger diameter spool valve, so it develops more force (at the same pressure) and having more flow capacity to compensate for downstream shift valve leakage make it a perfect, cost effective upgrade.

It is a larger unit as shown above and resists flooding that the OEM units are prone to. This is more of an issue with an aftermarket VB, but this is a way stouter unit... I am running one and have had no issues with it! Oh, and I have not ever had an issue with the shuttle / shift hunt that many have with the OEM solenoid

Thats a great price, I bought mine for 40 buck if I remember right, from what ever it takes transmission service. I got the info from someone here on the forum and Im not much on promotions or commercials but I like the service from what ever it takes, and the part was at the house in two days! And what a difference it made!

I paid over $100 at the dealer but I wanted to fix mine that day and it has worked perfectly ever since. If it happens again I'll be going this route though....

Are you saying if the dealer replaces the solenoid they will install the new borg warner unit?

The original governor pressure solenoid that came out of my 48RE had a pink/white connector. The new one I got at the dealer parts counter looks like the mopar solenoid pictured above with the black connector. I paid $200 for a governor pressure solenoid and governor pressure sensor. My truck would sometimes shuttle shift but I started getting a random trans temp light usually soon after starting the truck. After swapping out both parts, I have had no more problems.

How hard is it to change one of these out? Do you have to drop the pan?
