Question Dorman Transmission Solenoid

Has anyone used an aftermarket transmission solenoid pack by Dorman? Are they just as good as Mopar? Thanks

Can't tell you how the Dorman one is but it seems the Mopar one has issues. Hopefully some of the other guys will chime in that have had solenoid issues.

I have had a Dorman solenoid on my car for about 2 years now with zero issues.

The Mopar trans solenoid doesn't seem to be a problem It's the original gasket. They leak on a lot of PT's. Also, Borg Warner makes a trans solenoid for a reasonable price--and all onn this forum who've used them are happy with them.

I just replaced mine with a ATP brand from rockauto, it ended up being a borg warner with a lifetime guarantee. Installed it with no issues, shift good and I did not have to do a "re learn"
