Out of a 2014 Dodge Pro Master (Grand Caravan).
The owner apparently had the original tranny replaced under warranty at around 90k miles. The replacement made it 500k miles.




2015 Grand Caravan 3.6L - 35k miles.
2006 Mazda 3 2.0L - 186k miles

It is a commercial van, but not a Sprinter. It is a funky looking front drive full sized van that I think was designed in Europe, (and thus the funky look.)

They have the sloped nose of those other vans, but then it looks sort of blunt at the bumper.

I've heard they are pretty good vans and they are pretty popular among businesses around where I live. I see them a lot.

The craziest thing about driving in Europe is being passed by these vans all going 120+ mph. They get paid by the job!

Seems like a stupid idea to rebuild a 500,000 mile transmission. All the hard parts that have 500,000 miles of wear will still be in the rebuild. Not a big issue at 200K, but at 500K?

LOL Hard to believe this is a derivative of their FWD 4AT's.

Snark on: dude look real practiced at tearing it down... like he had practice or something...

Snark off: Bodes well in general for these transmissions. I wonder if that van is lighter than the typical Carvan? It certainly lives a more ideal life, nothing but highway miles, little stop and go. Also didn't look terrible to tear into.

Question: when he says things look "good" what does that mean? I mean, if I pulled out a bearing or friction with 500k on it, I might not give a rip if it was completely worn out, just that it didn't have grooves in it, indicating that any mating hard part was bad, or that garbage had been circulating through the system. I'm guessing he means, these parts could be reused.

This guys is a transmission specialist. He has quite a lot of teardown videos of BMW, Audi, Honda, Toyota, GM transmissions.
So yeah, he is quote seasoned not just with chrysler transmissions.

Yeah, I figured he was a pro. Being a Toyota fanboi I simply couldn't refuse a good opportunity to poke fun of--even if it's at miles that that the vast majority of Toyota's will never see, and without the Toyota tax to boot.

That 62TE looks pretty good for that mileage, many automatics don't make it that far. I'm shocked at how fast he got it from whole to stripped in less than an hour.

Chrysler trannies are much maligned - but they aren't that bad, as long as care is exercised to use ATF+4, the problems the 42TE/A604 had were quick lubes and indie shops as well as the driver dumping in Dexron fluid.

Pretty much that. Half a pint of Dexron would kill a 604. Making things worse, the 3-speed automatics actually called for Dexron!
