Low converter release pressure at idle.
This Sonnax kit allows the rebuilder to restore correct clearances for proper hydraulic control.
GM 4L80-E and 4L85-E pressure regulator valve design prevents adequate cooler flow at low RPM and high pressure/demand conditions, which can create overheat complaints. In ‘99-later vehicles, the factory EPC pressure was set high at idle, resulting in engine surge conditions. Sonnax oversized line-to-lube pressure regulator and boost valve kit 34200-36K provides a significant increase in cooler flow under low RPM and high pressure conditions.
