Power driver isn’t necessary but came in handy for me

I was dreading the crossmember removal and came up with this solution

gsbrockman Did you read this ENTIRE thread though?

PeterPan Guys, i need some help.

I have a 2018 Ram 4500 6.7 cummins cabin chassis with 94k miles and Aisin transmission.
I am an idiot and somehow i miss understood when the transmission needs to be serviced...and i never changed the fluid nor the filter...this mechanic in town who works only on transmission and is very trusted in the trucking community here in west texas...said that if the transmission runs okay i should go ahead and change the fluid and filter and everything should be fine, well nothing is fine.
I got to it tonight, i just finished the job by the book, all the parts were from the dealership, i used only 7 quarts as for right now and i just started up the truck to see what’s up, the transmission makes a “grinding” sound, more like when you are sending something by hand and that sanding sound is continuous ...and also the check engine light Is on, i went through the gears amd that went fine but i didn’t move truck at all and instead i sat down and wrote this thread....

Yes, tab right on the Aisin states Mobile 3309, same oil just less expensive.

gsbrockman I recently changed the fluid and sump filter in the 2018 RAM 4500 Cab & Chassis. Since I’d never hacked apart one of the AS69RC transmission sump filters....I thought I’d go ahead and give it a try.

Not sure of the manufacturing process of this filter, but the case is tough and almost impossible to pry apart. I ended up using a thin cutoff wheel and just buzzed it in half. The filter media is really sandwiched in there as well.

Attached are a few pictures of said hacking.....

The AS68RC transmission (only used in 3500, 4500, and 5500 Cab & Chassis trucks from 2007.5 through 2012) ran AS68RC fluid.

With the introduction of the improved and more robust AS69RC transmission in 2013 (used in Cab and Chassis trucks AND 3500 pickups) the name of the fluid was changed to simply ASRC fluid. Essentially......it is the same fluid, but is backwards compatible to 2007.5 The name was changed to eliminate any specificity of the older AS68RC fluid.

I order some stuff from Rock Auto.....just beware of some of their shipping charges, especially on heavier items like fluids. Sometimes all of the savings go away with the shipping. I have had great luck with a a few eBay and Amazon sellers purchasing cases of 12 quarts of the Mobil 3309 fluid.

Jhenderson Your trans is an Aisin AS69RC. That’s the correct fluid.
