About Our Remanufactured 42RE Transmission
Even though the 42RE transmission is reliable, the transmission could require repair from time to time. Even though you are probably thinking about finding a cheap junkyard 42RE, you should go with our remanufactured 42RE transmission instead. At Reman-Transmission, our remanufactured 42RE transmissions will provide you with the quality products your vehicle deserves. Whether you are driving a domestic or foreign car or truck, a remanufactured transmission will ensure you get as many miles as possible.
When we remanufacture a 42RE transmission, we make sure that each individual part matches the performance specification set by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). As we go through the components, we compare the condition of each individual part in that 42RE transmission against the performance of a brand new part and replace each component with new or re-machined parts. That way, you know that your remanufactured 42RE transmission will perform just as well as a new transmission. Furthermore, because we correct any factory defects in a remanufactured 42RE transmission so that they might even last longer than a new crate 42RE transmission. If you want the best quality transmission for your vehicle, then you should go with a remanufactured 42RE transmission instead.

Our 42RE transmission Upgrades
Fully remanufactured valve body includes updated throttle valve, manual valve, 4-spool switch valve, and pressure regulator valve for improved shifting, lubrication, and performance.
Modified valve body allows torque converter charge in park to increase durability and enhance gear engagements.
Fully remanufactured torque converter is tested for leaks, lockup, concentricity, and balance. Upgrades exceed OE requirements and eliminate the possibility of front seal leaks, premature bushing wear, and vibration. Diesel and heavy-duty gasoline applications include new lock-up lining.
Completely remanufactured pump provides consistent internal pressures, eliminating slippage and delayed engagement.
Overdrive (OD) direct clutch updated to 8-plate clutch with new thrust plate for increased durability.
Overdrive (OD) clutch updated to 4-plate clutch for increased durability.
Overdrive (OD) planetary assembly upgraded to a 5-pinion unit for increased durability.
Oversized Low/Reverse brake band strut maintains correct band clearance to eliminate drum slippage and No-Reverse condition.
New external fluid cooler provided to improve cooling and prevent fluid contamination.
All-new custom-spec bushings improve internal fluid flow control and pressures.
Bushings and machined surfaces polished to a mirror-like OE finish of 16 RA or less.
Every transmission is cold-and hot-tested using a proprietary dynamometer testing program that includes fully synthetic automatic transmission fluid and a filtration system.

42RE History & Information
The 42RE TorqueFlite transmission is part of the A500 series, which is a rear-wheel drive transmission. The A500 was originally named the 40RH and 42RH, which stands for hydraulic controls governor pressure. As these transmissions were upgraded, they became electronically controlled. As a result, they were renamed the 40RE and 42RE before receiving additional changes that upgraded it to what is known as the 44RE transmission. The original A500 transmission was used beginning with the 1989 Dodge Ram model year. The 42RE transmission began to be installed in a variety of vehicles starting in 1993.
The 42RE transmission was built off the standards set by the A999. The A999 (32RH) was already a heavy-duty, wide-ratio version of the transmissions that came before it such as the A904 (30RH). The A998 (31RH) was introduced prior to the A999 and featured a wider aspect ratio, providing the transmission with more power. Because the previous versions had gotten positive reviews, Chrysler moved forward with the A500, which eventually evolved from the 40RE into the 42RE and, later, 44RE.
After the 42RE transmission was introduced, it received upgraded gear ratios (from the 40RH/RE). That also provided it with exceptional durability, longevity, and power. Furthermore, the housing of the transmission was altered slightly to ensure it would fit multiple vehicles. This transmission also featured an overdrive gear, providing additional power without increasing friction. This further extended the lifespan of this 42RE transmission.
The 42RE transmission was first introduced in Dodge and Jeep vehicles in 1993: Dodge Ram 1500 pickup, Dodge Ram B150 Van, Dodge Dakota, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the Dodge Durango. In the following few years, the 42RE transmission was expanded to include other makes and models as well including the Aston Martin Virage before it was phased out in 2004. Throughout the years this transmission was in use, numerous variations were created, altering certain aspects slightly to fit with the specific powertrain of the vehicle. As a result, the 42RE transmission became one of the most ubiquitous transmissions produced by Chrysler and TorqueFlite.
The 42RE transmission received an upgrade to the 44RE. The 44RE was slightly more stable than the 42Re and allowed the driver to access more power. Ultimately, the overall A500 series was the last in a series of rear-wheel drive transmissions from TorqueFlite. Even though Chrysler TorqueFlite transmissions are still in use today, they have undergone several upgrades since. Therefore, lots of people are interested in remanufactured 42RE transmissions, which is where we can help you!
