You may not believe this, but even the professional rebuilder or mechanic might not know everything about working on the 46RE (aka A518) / 47RE / 48RE (aka A618) transmission series. Despite a detailed approach, even a minor glitch could throw them off. The transmission range sensor, internal component locations, electrical connector and terminal identification, fluid specifications, tow and haul overdrive cancel switches, and more may need to be added to any equation in the process. A student may go to the teacher, the mechanic might turn to his supervisor, any one of these individuals may go to a trusted source on the Internet.
The savvy knows they can turn to ATSG's Jeep, Dodge 46RE / 47RE / 48RE Transmission Rebuild Repair Manual. The manual provides diagrams with parts identification, component application charts and procedures broken down into numbered steps that will make all tranny overhaul operations easier to manage. It has the detailed scoop for working on this family of Chrysler units with rear forward and front direct clutches, and an OD/direct clutch that serves as the input driving component. They'll find needed info on the push-in TRS, implemented to replace the screw-in park/neutral switch.
It's all here: removing the transmission, taking out shifters, draining of fluids, bellhousing, slave cylinder and more. The 46RE / 47RE / 48RE transmissions are all fully automated units with electronic governors equipped with a lock-up clutch in the torque converter. Part of the Chrysler family of transmissions, these models saw alterations in engine sizes, TTVAs and range sensors. But none of that will be a concern as this manual walks you through every step of a rebuild or repair.
