They forgot to put the breether hose back on and i got muddy water all inside :wall: . So my question is rebuild kit whats the best, whats the cheapest and can any improvments be made.

    I would also like to know cause I need to remove my tranny for a rebuilt afer several overheating problems. I do mainly towing with my truck... I will install a tranny cooler also after rebuilt to help it stay cooler.



    Should I get the tranny done by a shop or do it myself? (I'm a machinist and part time mechanic so I can do just about anything)



    Can this job be done by someone with no tranny rebuild experience? :bad: ???



    Thanks for any reply about it :bigthumb:

    It is easy as hell it comes apart in sections i build one in about 30 to 45 minutes. Call transtar ind. at 1800 230 3030 ask for a master rebuild kit. also do your tc it will be contaminated. Its about 150 bucks and they got me my kit in two days. The valve body is a little harder. Just inspect and clean you might want to install a valve body upgrade kit 30 dollars or so transtar will have it helps the flow of fluid when the truck is at idle. And yes install a trany cooler that is the major problem with the 46rh also remove the check valve in the cooler line and install a filter. Trany will be good after that.

    Thanks for the help!



    I already drilled ou the check valve in the cooler line up front when the tranny first heat but it just keep heating when towing :silly:



    I guess I'll give it a try by myself since a good rebuils in a tranny rapair shop goes from 1000-1800$ depending on damage. I have all Dodge service manuals also... I'll do some reading and I should be ready to go :wink:

    I've heard that this check valve needs to be deleted from the lines or drilled out.



    Does anyone have an explanation why and maybe pictures?
