ATS Thermal Bypass Valve Delete For 2013-2018 6.7L Cummins 68RFE or Aisin AS69RC
Part Number: 3100052392
Keeps your transmission temperatures in check
Eliminates factory bypass valve
Fits ATS 68RFE & Aisin AS69RC Transmissions
Ensures 100% fluid flow through transmission cooler
When working properly, the 68RFE and Aisin AS69RC are a great transmission. Unfortunately, though, when things go bad, they go very bad. The 68RFE especially has been plagued with a high failure rate that many attribute to the fact the converter in this transmission never goes into a full lockup, which creates excessive heat, and we all know what heat does to a transmission.
Interestingly enough, this easy to install bypass valve delete can keep your transmission temperatures in check in certain environments, potentially saving you a heap of money.
Ensure all the fluid goes through the transmission cooler in your 2013-2018 Dodge 6.7L Cummins with the ATS 3100052392 Thermal Bypass Valve Upgrade.
From the factory, your truck has a transmission cooler bypass so that when cold, the fluid bypasses the transmission cooler for faster warm up. Which is a great idea in theory.
In reality, the bypass valve has been proven to be problematic causing leaks, and in almost all cases, the valve sticks in the bypass position. When this happens, the fluid bypasses the cooler and it is essentially eliminated from the loop.
As many can guess, running your transmission without a transmission fluid cooler causes elevated temperatures which will severely damage your transmission.
The ATS Thermal Bypass Valve Upgrade eliminates the factory bypass valve and ensures that 100% of the transmission cooler flow is forced through the transmission cooler.
This not only ensures that you have proper flow, but it also helps reduce transmission temperature which also helps extend transmission service life.
