    Automatic Transmission Diagnostic Chart 46re 47re 48re

       (0 reviews)

    pepsi71ocean

    Hey guys, Pepsi here with a write up that I got from the DT forums. I have streamlined and fixed it up made it look nice etic. and added stuff where I felt it was prudent.

    This is a general guide and should apply to the 46RE, 47RE, and 48 RE series of transmisisons.

     

    Pepsi's Notes

    I am not the original author; however I have made modifications and additions as well to this article’s contents. Original is written by tactransman. The original can be viewed HERE

    With the legal aspect out of it here we go...

       ALWAYS THE FIRST STEP….

    CHECK YOUR DAM FLUID! Ha, yes you guessed it most times low/high fluid levels will cause tons of issues, its best to check your fluid first.

    Checking your fluid can save you a ton of time and agony especially if you’re following gremlins around.

    So to check your fluid you must part on level ground and idle your truck in NETURAL not Park or any other gear. Check to make sure your fluid is between the two sets of dots, either the lower set or the upper set. Also take note one says “COLD” the other “HOT” this is in reference to your transmission temperature. It’s best to have a warm engine and warm fluid when measuring hot marks.

     

     Shorthanded Diagnostics…

    The rear clutch is applied in all forward ranges (D, 2, 1).

    The overrunning clutch is applied in first gear (D, 2 and 1 ranges) only.

    The rear band is applied in 1 and R range only.
    The overdrive clutch is applied only in fourth gear. However the overdrive direct clutch and overrunning clutch are applied in all ranges except fourth gear.

    Examples…
    If slippage occurs in first gear in D and 2 range but not in 1 range, the transmission overrunning clutch is faulty. Similarly, if slippage occurs in any two forward gears, the rear clutch is slipping.
    Applying the same method of analysis, one note that the front and rear clutches are applied simultaneously only in D range third and fourth gear. If the transmission slips in third gear, either the front clutch or the rear clutch is slipping.
    If the transmission slips in fourth gear but not in third gear, the overdrive clutch is slipping. By selecting another gear which does not use these clutches, the slipping unit can be determined.

    For another example, if the transmission also slips in Reverse, the front clutch is slipping. If the transmission does not slip in Reverse, the rear clutch is slipping.
    If slippage occurs during the 3-4 shift or only in fourth gear, the overdrive clutch is slipping. Similarly, if the direct clutch were to fail, the transmission would lose both reverse gear and overrun braking in 2 position (manual second gear).
    If the transmission will not shift to fourth gear, the control switch, overdrive solenoid or related wiring may also be the problem cause.

    This process of elimination can be used to identify a slipping unit and check operation. Although road test analysis will help determine the slipping unit, the actual cause of a malfunction usually cannot be determined until hydraulic and air pressure tests are performed. Practically any condition can be caused by leaking hydraulic circuits or sticking valves.
    Unless a malfunction is obvious, such as no drive in D range first gear, do not disassemble the transmission. Perform the hydraulic and air pressure tests to help determine the probable cause.

    I hope this will help future generations of Dodge Cummins owners out, I didn't copy these to take claim, I took them and put them tougher so others will be able to use this information which is now easily accessible and legible.

    If the original owners feel that this is a violation feel free to PM me and I will be happy to remove this if the owner feels such is prudent.
