Yet another installment in our must-have "Bulletproof Kit" series is the 62TE Bulletproof62 kit, designed for your 6 Speed Automatic Promaster Wagon, Dart, Town & Country, Grand Caravan or similar! The 62TE valve body is responsible for controlling virtually all functions of the transmission. The accumulation system is plastic and incredibly leaky from the factory, along with it's separator plate that deprives the converter of adequate oil.
Our ultimate sealing billet aluminum "Formula One" accumulator piston set for the 68RFE has been pro-fitted to the 62TE application via this DIY shift kit, yielding crisper, safer and cooler gear shifts; a MUST whether you drive a frequently weighed down van, high performance application or are just simply invested in your vehicle and want a permanent solution to the grossly problematic 62TE.
Below, we will assess and analyze the benefits of the Next Gen proprietary Bulletproof62 DIY Shift Kit and take a deeper look into each of it's components. Whether you're carrying cargo, commuting or just rebuilding, this kit is a MUST as well as a difference you can immediately feel!

*This kit comes with very easy to follow instructions and visuals to help you install the product as efficiently as possible. If you run into any questions or hang-ups, just call in and ask to speak to an expert!*
You can expect:
- Much better shifting
- Tremendously increased longevity, resolving the dreaded manual valve issue unlike other kits!
- Better clutch control
- Fixes crossleakage better than any other DIY kit on the market
*For those who are not in the market for our complete and ready to install valve bodies or transmissions, this is the perfect DIY solution that ANYONE can do, and is designed to address the major failure points of the 5R110 once and for all.*
This kit consists of:
- 3X Thicker Than OEM CNC Laser Cut “Formula One” Separator Plate w/ Enlarged TCC Feed Upgrade
- CNC Ground NeverLeak Billet Switch Valve End Plug Kit
- (6) Billet “Formula One” Accumulator Pistons
- (30) Teflon Seals (5 Per Piston)
Solenoid Switch Valve:
The Solenoid Switch Valve is a little known yet massive failure point in the 68RFE valve body. It tends to seize in place and cause the truck to have trouble in it's overdriven gears amongst other things. Unfortunately, this is not a part any known shift kits offer an inclusive solution for.
Other kits available on the market offer an upgraded separator plate, or paper gaskets. This is partially helpful but fails to resolve many of the main failures of the 68RFE, especially the Solenoid Switch Valve. The SSV is a massive failure point in the 68RFE and is actually where most crossleakage tends to occur, not just the separator plate.
To resolve this, we offer a package of drop-in axially supported and precision machined end plugs that are designed not to wear the bore of the switch valve, and also not become stuck resulting in P0871 and overdrive clutch failure. This is an extreme upgrade in reliability that will save most 68RFE owners from overdrive failure completely in stock or close to stock applications. Best of all, it's 100% drop-in!
The “Formula One” Separator Plate:
Think of your separator plate as the head gasket of your transmission. It’s exposed to tremendous pressure and frequently begins to leak causing catastrophic failure. Our proprietary CNC Laser-Cut Separator plate is designed both 3x thicker to maximize sealing potential and negate this concern, but also is designed to torque to a near perfect seal on its third torque.
This is also a single piece plate, rather than multiple paper gaskets that are to be laid together, providing ease and precision during install with the thickest and best sealing separator plate on the market. CNC Lasering also enables us to maintain the most stringent tolerances while also offering a hand finish to both mating surfaces. This separator plate puts shame to all others and is a MUST for longevity OR power!
"Formula One” Billet Accumulator Pistons:
You can think of accumulator pistons as the shock absorbers of the Valve Body. They’re designed to help regulate pressure during clutch application. The factory units are hunks of plastic Chinese horse-shit that lead to catastrophic failure of the transmission along with abysmal shift quality. We designed our “Formula One” Accumulator pistons here in-house to present a perfect seal and make bore wear a thing of the past.
These pistons feature an industry leading FIVE seals per piston. Further, the tolerances are set to 0.001” of piston clearance on each side after the rings have sized in, making them a truly flawless fit. These pistons (and frankly all of the parts in this kit) are what enable us to offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY on our Formula One Billet Valve Body. These pistons are a change you can feel!
If you’re looking for a DIY solution to your 62TE that does not require a transmission drop, tremendous shop labor costs or going broke, there’s is no better product than our Bulletproof62 kit. This bestselling product is easy to install, affordable and delivers huge improvements to the 62TE at any mileage or rebuild. If you still have questions, we encourage to call in and speak to one of our experts!
