About Our Remanufactured 545RFE Transmission
If you are looking for a reliable 545FRE automatic transmission replacement from your local zone, then you may want to go with our remanufactured 545RFE transmission. Our super rebuilt 545RFE transmission is a popular item in our company catalog, as we provide a wide variety of transmissions. When compared to a transmission rebuild or a reconditioned 545RFE transmission, our remanufactured option is superb. Our products differ from our competitor’s rebuilt transmissions because they only replace the broken parts within the assembly. The remanufactured transmissions we sell have had every component replaced with new or rebuilt parts to meet or exceed the original manufacturer’s specifications. Even though you may be able to find a cheaper option if you go with a used 545RFE transmission, a remanufactured 545RFE transmission has been tested to make sure it meets or exceeds all quality standards as set by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). If there are any defective parts, we always replace those components. Then, we test each individual part to make sure its performance and condition are exceptional and meet every specification set by the manufacturer. We will also make sure that your transmission is directly compatible with your vehicle and your powertrain.
If you are looking for the best 545RFE transmission for sale from a supplier near you, we are proud to be an industry-leading option. We use your VIN or your vehicle’s year, make, and model to look through our stock, providing you with the top remanufactured transmission choice for your car. At Reman-Transmission, we always place your needs first. If you need a rock solid replacement product for your auto or truck, drop in today and ask a professional from our shop for a quote, even if you are looking for a TorqueFlite! That way, you have a complete picture of how much it is going to cost before you buy or repair your transmission and return to the street. We are so confident in our transmissions that we even provide you with an exceptional warranty on every product no matter if it’s a used or remanufactured transmission. We also guarantee free and fast delivery straight to your commercial address. If you need any help with starting the process, give one of our friendly customer service representatives a call for fast and helpful service.
Our 545RFE transmission Upgrades
Fully remanufactured valve body includes updated solenoid switch valves for improved shifting, lubrication, and performance.
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.
Completely remanufactured pump, complete with updated TCC limit valve and TCC accumulator to ensure proper TCC control and cooler flow, provides consistent internal pressures, eliminating slippage and delayed engagement.
New line pressure sensor maintains consistent shift quality.
Secured accumulator cover bolts prevent loss of 3rd or 4th gear.
Fully remanufactured solenoid packs are tested separately from the transmission before dyno testing to verify shift quality and pressure control.
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.

545RFE History & Information
The Chrysler made 545RFE transmission, previously referred to as the 45RFE which was its predecessor, was first used in the Jeep Grand Cherokee back in 1999. In 2003 Dodge started using this transmission in the Ram 3500. The 545RFE transmission is known for having three planetary gear sets instead of the standard two that are frequently used in four-speed automatic transmissions. A strong transmission for domestic and foreign vehicles, the 545RFE transmission remains popular to this day. The 45RFE transmission was produced at the Indiana Transmission factory, located in Kokomo, IN. It was often paired with the 4.7 L PowerTech V8 before becoming the 5-speed 545RFE transmission.
This transmission has 3 multiple disc holding clutches, three multiple disc input clutches, along with a dual internal filter system. 1 filter system is used for the fluid cooler return system while the other filter is used for the transmission sump. When compared to the 45RFE transmission, the 545RFE transmission has a slightly different ratio. The 45RFE has a 1.50:1 ratio while the 545RFE transmission has a 1.67:1 ratio. Furthermore, in the 545RFE transmission, a taller overdrive ratio is used. Chrysler often refers to this as a multi-speed automatic. There are several reasons why people love to swap out their transmission for a 545RFE transmission. The 545rfe transmission compares favorably to its predecessor, the 45RFE. If you have a need for a newer Chrysler or TorqueFlite transmission, the 65RFE, 66RFE, and 68RFE are all direct successors of the 545RFE transmission that have been upgraded accordingly. In the end, the 545RFE was a great transmission as it is durable, powerful, and leads to exceptional longevity in whatever vehicle you throw it in.
