545RFE finally look a crap

I let my buddy borrow my Hemi and now the truck only has 1st and 2nd gear. Throwing a code saying "3 gear incorrect ratio." Whatever that means

I found a shop a few hours away that rebuilds them for $850 if you bring your trans to them. Best deal I have found so far.

I would want to do a valve body and converter at the same time. Is there someone that builds mild transmissions for these for a decent price?

Question: what is the differences between the 03 545RFE and a 07 545RFE?


Thanks,

So, does that mean it won't work?

You could swap your solenoid pack into the new/used trans.

Ok, I think I'm going to ditch the used transmission route and get a rebuilt trans. At work we use trans star and they quoted me $2250 for a stock trans. Sharadon charges $2450 or something with a $300 core. Are there any other options out there? I'll be throwing a converter in it also. Not sure which one yet. Looking for something driveable without a really high stall.
