Jasper offers expanded Ford 6R80 transmission line

Jasper Engines & Transmissions has expanded its remanufactured Ford 6R80 transmission product line. The transmission line fits a variety of applications, including 2016-2017 RWD Transit (3.5L and 3.7L), according to an announcement.

“Each Jasper remanufactured Ford 6R80, 2011 and later, receives a 100 percent new lead frame,” says Brad Boeglin, Jasper new product development group leader. “The new lead frame includes the speed sensor and range switch, which will prevent the transmission from intermittently dropping into first gear.”

The 6R80 valve body is 100 percent remanufactured and vacuum tested to restore hydraulic integrity, which reduces the chance of low hydraulic pressure within the transmission, resulting in erratic shifts, Boeglin says.

“A deeper, high-capacity oil pan is installed on select models, to reduce the chance of transmission overheating, and the latest design pressure plates are 100 percent installed to reduce the chance of snap ring dislocation on overdrive, direct and intermediate clutches,” he adds.

The 6R80 is covered by a 3-year/100,000-mile nationwide, transferable, parts and labor warranty, the company says.
