With the elimination of the rear pump the oil filter was designed with a single oil port. The four-speed electronic four-speed automatic transaxle would eventually replace it, but the three-speed lasted for more than a decade after the 1989 debut of the four-speed unit. At the governor pressure tap on the transmission install a tee fitting for two oil pressure switches. It takes a cross-country road trip like Power Tour to fully appreciate the overdrive tranny. The center wire on the transmission is the hot wire and the two other wires are ground wires for overdrive and the lock-up torque converter. Should you have any questions or concerns about your Shift Select transmission, our Product Support Team is only a phone call away.

It was equipped with four direct friction plates. We work with different manufacturers in the development of stronger parts. It was used in Europe, on Talbot Simca, 1510 and Solara. In 1968, part-throttle downshift functionality was added to A-904 transmissions used with 6-cylinder engines. The Mega Monster Transmission features: the latest technology in our industry with only the best internal components for increased strength, dependable performance and monster torque capacity.
The custom machined output shafts have been designed to be compatible with yokes from both early and late style models.

Starting in 1990, it was used in some trucks and vans. Once in overdrive, the transmission will not come out until the solenoid is switched open again, or vehicle speed is slow enough to cause a First gear downshift less than 5 mph , or the vehicle is floored at a speed low enough to catch First gear. This is in contrast to vehicles with several automatics from and , which start out in second rather than first if the Second position is selected. While the obvious fix would be to simply replace the lame torque converter with a Mopar unit, 1500 miles of high-rpm Power Tour driving before the breakdown suggested there might be a better alternative. This transaxle would be upgraded in the 1980s into the A413 and A670 units, which were progressively heavier-duty, for Chrysler's and their derivatives, including the minivans. The gated shift quadrants also permitted the deletion of the reverse safety blocker valve which, in TorqueFlites made through 1965, had shifted the transmission harmlessly into Neutral if the Reverse position were selected with the vehicle moving forward above approximately 3 mph 4.

But even with an additional 200-rpm worth of converter slippage, that still figures out to around 2032. Our remanufactured transmissions meet or exceed the guidelines set forth by the manufacturer.
The additional cost may be higher than installing a reman or rebuilt transmission--not to mention the extra downtime. It was used in trucks and vans starting in the mid-1990s.

The vacuum switch acts as a throttle position sensor and the oil pressure switch acts as a speed sensor. So it's definitely something you want. The overdrive planetary has six pinion gears unlike the 5 pinion used with the A518 used with the Cummins turbodiesel which is often used as an aftermarket replacement for the stock 4 pinion planetary used with the lighter duty transmissions.
