Not sure but I there a great tranny. Mines a 98 and has over
600000km on it and the tc just went in it last week. So I think they are a great tranny I worked mine everyday with a 225' float trailer with a 9ton mini ex on it. And wasn't driven easy.

I put 107k on the original before losing second gear, then went through 2 Mopar rebuilds in 3 years. That was all before doing anything to add power. Now I have a Goerend "HD" rebuild. Best upgrade I've done!

I just pulled my 47RE out of my truck.... Its definitely never was touched since it left the factory when it was built new back in 1996.

It still worked fine but not effectively (mostly of how its built: sloppy torque converter, so soft shifting that I almost can't feel it).

It had AFC mods @ FF and #100 fuel plate and 16* timing on it for it's last 10,000 miles. Not a problem at all, even pulling a ~7,500lbs trailer up a hill at 35 psi boost at 70 mph (accelerating) with TCC locked.

However I understand the fact that chrysler's automatic transmissions have higher failure rate than most of other manufacturers but they can be made into a good trans.

Most of you guys understand, but a few of you guys need to grow up..

Automatic transmissions in the automotive industry for the most part are problematic,
period.

Childishly talking crap and being dumb founded at why your cranked up tq monster destroyed its 100k+ mile auto trans makes me laugh.

When you crank anything up, you have to pay to play. I've had my trans out of my drag car 7 times in one season, but you'll never hear me crying about it.

My 12v tow pig, has 230k, auto trans fluid is not discolored, shifts fine, it fact its a dream to drive. I'm thankful and look forward to it every day. I drive it with sense, I don't hot rod it like all these retarded concrete farmers. If it left me stranded tom, I would man up and fix it, not whimper on here about what I knew was coming. Maybe you all should have done some research prior to your parents purchase.

These are good trucks overall, no truck is perfect, they all have their own pros and cons. Anyone that thinks these trucks are garbage over a single part is a fool. If your willing to throw dodge under the bus over this, don't let the door smack you on the way out and this forum will be a better place with out you. These problems can be fixed easily, its not dodges fault you are not capable and can't handle it.

47 Re Blown 40k on rebuild

Blew this thing away even with an HD 3 fin billet Torque converter. Lost ever gear up a hill today. Putting in an Allison A1000, pile of Chrysler transmission. 40k on a rebuild with fluid changes and filter and bands adjusted regularly. I'll never use another Chrysler trans again.

2000 2500 75 horse injectors and 120 comp hot 2nd vp at 178,000. 40k on rebuilt auto.

Also look at all the added power and then bash the tranny that was NEVER built for anything like that? Never ceases to amaze me.

Oh I know, as I said in another post, it annoys the Crap out of me! Once you leave stock power levels it's on you. Dodge built it to handle what it had when it left the factory, so expecting it to hold up to more than that is not right. If you do expect that then when it breaks, don't come crying to us.

tranny

I have a 99 24v 4x4 and i put five trannys in my truck. there is no warning when they go it just happens. the first 4 would stick in first gear. The lastest one just slips its off in 1 n2 gears. I even had dodge look at mine and they have no idea what the problem is they say tightn bands add coolers but they are temper mental turds. so does that any of ur horror storys.

take my advise, any dealership in jersey...run far far away.


I know more about our diesels then the Cummins certified mechanic does. if it doesn't show up on the start scan then they cannot fix it.

Considering how well I treated the auto transmission?

How many of you "Gents" change the fluid in your 47re every 12,000-15,000 miles and adjust the bands? Do you know the proper band adjustment in a 47RE transmission? Anyways, you probably don't so moving on. Before you remotely call me "Stupid" and tell me I just beat the crap out of the transmission. I have never power braked the truck; I've never done a boost launch from a stop light. I've only pulled over 10k with it once, I pulled 22.5k with that truck on a Pintle with the auto in it. The most that was usually hauled around was a double axle with 5 quads on it. So tell me again how I "Abuse" the truck? I love it, but the auto transmission regardless is ing worthless. If you can't drive it with a stick you should probably not drive it. So guess what? Thanks for the bashing but you can all go and yourselves. It now has an NV4500 and a SBDD3600.

i did, and did it my self, and i still only got 80K out of it, there is so much to learn about why the 47re failed that it is amazing.

im not trying to bash, but a triple disk torque converter without a valve body or a shift kit will not solve the first problem which is that the trannys have weak line pressure.

the 47re behind a gas engine in a racing application (of which it was devised from the 727 torqueflight) is a strong trans, and can handle the torque and HP, but the problem is it can't do it 1,200rpm's.


you can add all the clutches and kevlar bends you want but if your not getting 150-200psi at lock up your slipping.
