I have a quick question, sorry to post it here as I have been searching for hours for an answer and can't find jack! (Plus, the garages where I live won't lift a finger for you unless you've paid them - buggers!)

Simply: Will a filter/gasket kit that works with a 46RH work with my 46RE?

I know the RH is hydraulic and the RE is electric, but beyond that, I can find no answers as to any other differences they might have.

Walking away from the computer for a while because if I keep searching for the answer to this question, I'm gonna throw my notebook out the damn window!

Thanks to anyone who can help me with this!

The filter is gasket kit for the 46RH will fit the 46RE yes. The 46RE and 46RH are completely the same except for the valve body because the RH as you know is hydraulic and the RE is electronic, other than that everything is the same, the case, the drums, the plates, the discs, the gear ratio, and so on. You can get a filter and gasket kit at the advanced auto parts store for 6.99 comes with 2 gaskets for the two type of mount and a filter, the two different mounts aren't because one is for the RE and another RH because like I said the RE and RH are the same, the extra gasket is for another model transmission. Any questions for anything regarding the 46 series just ask me cause I know that transmission inside and out.

Replacing the valve body is as easy as replacing the filter if you know what you're doing, but you have the manual I gave you which should tell you how to do it, anyways be sure you torque the valve body mount bolts to spec. The reason your valve body is probably bad if the transmission is rebuilt is because of one of two things either they never rebuilt the valve body or they did rebuild it lol, now it sounds weird but rebuilding a valve body isn't easy especially hydraulic valve bodies, their are springs that open at a certain pressure and all you need to do is mix one spring with the other and bam screwed and most transmission shops only rebuild the transmission by replacing the discs and plates and the band and they do nothing else and then they "try" to rebuild the valve body and fail at that. You can go on ebay and pickup a valve body for 250-300 bucks. Typically shifting issues are either because your bands need adjustment, discs are worn or faulty valve body.

Hey for the recond it wasnt me u sent the manual to, although i would love to have it. But i replaced my shift solenoid and govener pressure sensor and the truck is now fixed. Go figure it would be some sensors. Thanks again for all the help. o and if sending the manual isnt to much trouble that would really help me out.
