History of the 62TE
The 62TE six-speed automatic was launched in 2007 with the V6 on the Sebring and Avenger, and with the Pacifica. It then rolled into minivans including the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country. With some case modifications from 2010 to 2011 updates were completed to help with the durability of the 62TE platform. This transmission is now used in the Ram Premasters cargo vans and rated for a higher payload.
The 62TE does not come with a dipstick, but one can still check the fluid level by taking the cap off the dipstick tube; the cap can be re-used. there is also a tool for finding the fluid level which can be purchased at the dealer or most parts stores.
The 62TE six-speed automatic transaxle was based on Chrysler’s existing four speed automatic with two new primary gear ratios and a secondary ratio for passing at highway speeds. The first gear ratio was much lower, to increase standing-start acceleration; and the differential was beefed up to handle more power.
The two extra gear ratios were added by replacing the transfer shaft with a compounder.
Smaller steps between ratios helped smooth shifting, as the engine speed doesn't change as greatly with each shift, while the wider range allowed both quicker acceleration and better mileage at highway speeds.
The 62TE's second gear was a considerable distance from first, and all other gears were fairly close together. The fifth gear was a 1:1 ratio; the overdrive gear was similar to the four speed.
62TE transmissions might require service for a number of reasons. However, the most common cause of failure in this transmissions is a malfunctioning torque converter. Torque converters that are not functioning properly can cause shifting problems
Slipping, Erratic Shifting, Harsh Forward or Reverse Gear Engagement: Some of the most common 62TE transmission problems are slipping between gears, erratic up or down shifts, or a hard slam when the 62TE transmission engages Drive or Reverse.
Sometimes not all issues are related to the transmission itself and instead can be found in the command side including wiring, Modules, and input sensors as found in this article:
