Remanufactured 65RFE Transmissions 

Ship Direct To Repair Shop
We provide an out-the-door price, with shipping, for a replacement remanufactured 65RFE transmission direct to the repair shop.
Reman 65RFE vs. Rebuilt 65RFE?
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 65RFE vs. Used 65RFE?
Buying a used 65RFE 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.

What You Get With Every 65RFE Transmission:

For the 2012 model year, the 545RFE was recalibrated and introduced as the 65RFE in 1500 Ram models. With the exception of an improved torque converter, it is physically the same as its predecessor.

The key difference in the 65RFE is the ability to use all six forward gears in sequence when using Electronic Range Select mode. In normal drive mode, however, the 65RFE uses the shift pattern of the 545RFE; thus never using 2nd and 3rd gears in succession. 2500 and 3500 models with gas engines received the 66RFE, a hybrid of 68RFE internals (including the gearset) packaged in a 545RFE case.

65RFE Install Checklist:

• Compare replacement transmission and torque convertor to original before installation.
• Scan original vehicle computer for all systems, record any codes for later review, and resolve all codes. Be sure to
check ABS as this may affect how the transmission performs through the traction control system.
• Transmission cooler and lines must be hot flushed or replaced. Fluid flow after flushing should be at least 1 quart of fluid in 30 seconds at the return cooler line.
• Inspect flex plate closely and completely for cracks or any damage.
• Inspect crankshaft pilot area for wear and apply grease to aid with installation.
• Be sure both dowel pins are clean, installed properly, and are in good condition.
• Seat the torque converter completely in the transmission prior to installation in the vehicle.
• Verify that the engine block and bell housing surfaces are clean and free of paint, grease, oil, and corrosion. If bell
housing and engine block are aluminum, take extra care to clean surfaces to prevent connectivity issues.
• Air tools should NOT be used to force the transmission against the engine block.
• Replace torque converter bolts with new to prevent damage from stretched original bolts.
• Inspect all engine and transmission mounts for wear and damage.
• Inspect driveshafts and u-joints for wear, binding, and damage.
• In all wheel drive vehicles, check tires for uniformity in brand and size.
• Test all sensors and switches that have been transferred from the original transmission.
• Fill the transmission with Synthetic or ATF+4 transmission fluid.
• Confirm that the transmission has a good ground connection; reattach all ground straps.
• Clean the driveshaft yoke or transfer case input shaft prior to installation to prevent transmission output seal
• Adjust gearshift linkage after installation.
• Perform “quicklearn” procedure using a capable scan tool in order to reset the CVI values. Vehicle may take several drive cycles to adapt to style of driver.
