What Problems Plague The Chrysler 42LRE Transmission?

Posted by on Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

The 42RLE is a 4 speed automatic transmission produced by the Chrysler Corporations. It originally started out as the 42LE, which was a trans-axle for front wheel drive vehicles. The conversion to fit a rear wheel drive vehicle was done with a case modification along with removing all the axle and drive components from the transmission. The 42 RLC comes from a family of transmissions, including (in this order) the 41TE, 41AE, 40 TE, and the 42LE. Each version of the transmission was supposedly an improvement from the previous version.
