ATS Thermal Bypass Valve Up-Grade, 2013-2018 6.7L Cummins with 68RFE or Aisin AS69RC Transmission (Replaces PN 68186711AA, 68186711AB)
68-RFE Trans Cooler Bypass Block, Fits 2013 and Up Cummins with 68-RFE or Aisin AS69RC Transmission. This is a Must for any truck that has a 68-RFE or Aisin AS69RC transmission in it. Dodge decides to incorporate a transmission cooler by pass valve into the cooling system of the 68-RFE and Aisin AS69RC that bypasses the transmission cooler during cold operation.
The intent is to force the transmission to warm up faster, the reality is this bypass valve leaks and sticks in the bypass position in almost every case causing the transmission cooler flow to bypass the trans cooler essentially eliminating the trans cooler from the circuit. This causes a severe damage to the transmission over time.
The ATS cooler block replaces the faulty design eliminating the bypass valve and ensures 100 percent of the trans cooler flow is forced through the trans cooler. In every case this substantially reduces transmission temperatures.
