Sorry, Allan, it is on a Dodge. It says to check it HOT, idling in Neutral. That way the fluid gets pumped back into all the places it drains out of while it's sitting. If you just fill it to full, fire it up, and take off, you will be running two quarts or so low.

When you have the pan off, take a look along the driver's side of the valve body. I don't know if they changed it with the electronic governor, but on the hydraulic governed transmissions, all you need is a 3/16 Allen wrench to turn up the line pressure. If you find a screw where the wrench is in this picture,

modify a 3/16 Allen wrench like this:

and give it two swings CCW, wrench toward the back of the truck. That turns up the line pressure.

Like I said, I don't know if the procedure is the same for the RE transmission you'd be getting, as the RH transmissions in the earlier trucks. Here is the whole thread on doing the trans adjustments on an RH transmission.

That's interesting, and thanks for the tip and the photos. I'm going to hopefully drop the pan this weekend. Did dodge have differant shaped pans on their trannys that make them easier to identify just by looking at them, like the Chevy transmissions? I'd like to know for sure which model tranny the truck has for sure.

Yes, all 3 and 4 speed RWD MOPAR tranmissions use the same filter, and one of two pans. The 727 and A518 and later 47/48 RE/RH tansmissions use one pan, while the 904, A500, and 46RE/RH use another. Which is which, I'm not sure. In 01, I think it would have the 47RE, the heavier one based off the 727. RE means it is electronicaly governed. RH means it is hydraulically governed. 4 means it's a 4 speed, and the 6,7,or 8 is a relative number for torque capacity. The 4 speeds are a 3 speed with an OD unit bolted onto the back. Which could have easily made the RE models a 6 speed, had they been thinking ahead when they engineered the OD unit.

Here is an article for the transmission you have. The band procedure is the same.

72 inch pounds is 6 foot pounds.

Thanks again for the helpful tips and info, and info on the coolers. Truck still has the window sticker which states the truck came with the 46RE transmission and the factory tow package. Nice to know what the truck is equipped with.

If it has the factory tow package, it should have a plug under the dash for the brake controller, and the brake wiring should be run to the 7-way RV plug in back. It should have the auxiliary cooler in it already, also. Look for an oil cooler in with the radiator and AC condenser, if it has AC, to verify.

When you get your filter it'll come with both gaskets. Just use the one that fits your pan.

Truck does have the tow package and have seen the lines going into the radiator for the tranny cooler. I appreciate the help with this.

One of the things I actually know a fair bit about. See, dad, reading all those MOPAR magazines for all those years wasn't such a waste after all.
