Our 48RE Updates and 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.
► 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.
► Custom-machined output shaft to fit both late- and early-style driveshaft yokes.
► 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.
► 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.
► Complete road simulation using a dynamometer testing program called C.A.R.S. (Computer Aided Road Simulation). Every transmission is cold and hot tested before shipment.
48RE Vehicle Applications
How Many Variations of the 48RE?
There are many different variations (so we have over 60 different part numbers!). Each one for a different engine size (bellhousing) and varying electronic and solenoid systems for different years.
Only certain models will interchange with others, which is why we ask for your 17-digit VIN# when you order so we are 100% sure it is the matching unit for your vehicle!

The 48RE is an electronically governed, ECU controlled, four-speed heavy-duty overdrive automatic transmission, that is stronger than its predecessor, the 47-series. The base design from the original Torqueflite remains largely unchanged and the addition of a 2-speed output shaft (overdrive unit) that is bolted to the back of the 3-speed transmission has only two ratios: direct (1:1) and overdrive (.69:1).
While lubrication to the overdrive unit was a challenge early on, this challenge was later overcome with factory improvements and/or aftermarket valve body kits.
