Remanufactured 545RFE Transmissions 

Ship Direct To Repair Shop
We provide an out-the-door price, with shipping, for a replacement remanufactured 545RFE transmission direct to the repair shop.
Reman 545RFE vs. Rebuilt 545RFE?
Both are good options but the best option for you depends on the transmission problem, the year, make and model of vehicle, the mileage and the vehicle value. What kind of warranty coverage are you looking for? Remanufactured transmissions carry a longer, 3 year, nationwide warranty with additional upgrades while a rebuilt unit generally carries up to a 1 or 2 year warranty and upgrades vary from shop to shop.
Reman 545RFE vs. Used 545RFE?
Buying a used 545RFE transmission may save you money. However, if the unit does not work properly after installed, you will more than likely have to pay the labor again for removal and reinstall of the transmission PLUS the freight to ship the transmission back to the salvage yard. The additional cost may be higher than installing a reman or rebuilt transmission--not to mention the extra downtime. Warranties for a used transmission is only 30 days, 60 days, 90 days or 6 months. Used transmissions, since there is no way to know how many miles are on them, may fail at any time.

Our 545RFE Transmission Updates and Upgrades

Previously called the 45RFE which was introduced in the Jeep Grand Cherokee in 1999, it is notable for including three planetary gearsets rather than the two normally used in a 4-speed automatic.

It also features three multiple disc input clutches, three multiple disc holding clutches, and a dual internal filter system (one primary filter for transmission sump, one for the fluid cooler return system). In the 45RFE applications four gears are utilized, with a different (1.50:1 rather than 1.67:1) second gear to increase versatility when downshifting.

In 545RFE usage, an extra taller overdrive ratio is also used. Chrysler decided to refer to it as a "multi-speed automatic".

The 45RFE was produced at the Indiana Transmission plant in Kokomo, Indiana. It was normally paired with the 4.7 L PowerTech V8. The 45RFE later became the 5-speed 545RFE

45RFE and 545RFE History:

How Many Variations of the 545RFE?

There are over 15 different variations of the 545RFE (so we have over 15 different part numbers!). Each one for a different engine size (bellhousing), one for 4WD vs. 2WD, and varying electronic and solenoid systems for different years. Sometimes we even need the TAG# from your transmission! (We will let you know if we do.)

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!
