Symptoms:
  • Broken clutch piston
  • Broken servo
  • Damaged case
  • High line pressure
Cause:

Unregulated EPC pressure forces pressure regulator into high line position.

Correction:

This self-regulating reverse boost valve regulates EPC pressure to 95-105 psi with an encapsulated relief valve.

Complaint:

  • Broken clutch piston
  • Broken servo
  • Damaged case
  • High line pressure

Cause:

Unregulated EPC pressure forces pressure regulator into high line position.


Correction:

This self-regulating reverse boost valve regulates EPC pressure to 95-105 psi with an encapsulated relief valve.

Common problems in vehicles with a 4L80-E transmission include uncontrollable line rise (upward of 500 psi), high line pressure in reverse, broken direct clutch drums and/or broken cases. These problems can be caused by excessive EPC torque signal pressure. The Sonnax self-regulating reverse boost valve 34200-10K eliminates these problems by limiting EPC pressure.

  • Hardened steel boost valve has an encapsulated relief valve that will allow EPC pressure to exhaust if it exceeds 95-105 psi.
  • Boost valve with over 20% wider spools to provide better durability and increased sealing contact area.
  • Boost valve spools have annular grooves to reduce side loading that causes wear.
  • Closely toleranced sleeve restores the hydraulic integrity between the valve and sleeve.
  • O-rings have been added to the sleeve to provide a positive seal that compensates for pump bore wear.
NOTE:

Kit includes instructions to retrofit parts dating back to 89.

  • Patent No. 6,776,736
