Sorry about resurrecting and old thread. I thought it was better than posting a new one. I was getting ready to do a tranny fluid change and I stumbled upon this TSB. I have had this problem since I bought my truck in 2005. I brought it to the dealer a few times but I was sent away with a could not reproduce. I'm out of warranty and I don't have a dealer near. I figured I would change both filters when I change the fluid.

The problem is that my Google Fu has not returned any sources to buy the cooler return filter (04799662). Does anyone know where to buy or are their any site sponsors that sell it?

Rock Auto, Ebay, various other online retailers have it. Any Napa, Advance Auto, Autozone, or Oreillys will also have it, and can be ordered from them online. Most places sell it in a kit with the pan gasket, flat filter, and spin on filter. Is your truck a 4wd or 2wd? There is a difference in the flat filters. The 4wd version has a longer pickup to accomodate the deeper 4wd pan. The 2wd version will not work on a 4wd and vice versa.

I never really used the OEM version (except for the change I did a few days ago because the mood struck me and the Dodge house is a block from my house), because Im not a fan of the RTV gasket and all the other kits have gaskets. Im also going to cuss myself in 50,000 miles when its time to scrape that RTV off but, oh well its worth it to be lazy for a day lmao. Even though I always used non OEM Ive never had the drainback problem, if Im not mistaken this was only on certain dealer and wix filters and should have long since been fixed.

I can't thank you enough. I guess my problem was searching only on the part number. It's RWD.

Your welcome. Good luck changing everything out. Have plenty of newspaper or cement cleaner handy as this is a messy situation.
