3. How Do You Correct The Factory Faults In The Chrysler 545RFE Transmission?

At Powertrain Products, we correct all known factory faults while rebuilding our transmissions. (Learn about the process step-by-step here.) In this case, we install remanufactured parts that prevent slippage and delayed engagement. We also do the following to improve shifting, lubrication, and the transmission’s all-around performance:

  • Install a completely remanufactured torque converter
  • Install a remanufactured valve body. (This includes updates to the solenoid switch valves and solenoid packs.)
  • Install a completely remanufactured pump. (It includes a TCC limit valve and a TCC accumulator that ensure proper fluid flow.)
  • Include custom spec bushings
  • Secure the accumulator cover bolts. (This prevents the transmission from losing the third and fourth gears.)

4. How Do You Test Your Remanufactured Transmissions?

Powertrain Products is a trusted brand for remanufactured transmissions. It’s because our rebuilt transmissions are high quality. It’s also because we thoroughly dyno test all our transmissions for operability before we ship them out.

We have five custom-built dyno units that replicate real-world loads and driving situations. You can read more about our dyno testing process here.
