Tool Required VB-FIX Required
- 1-2 Harsh
- 3-4 Clutch burned
- Code 1870
- Low line pressure
- Low TCC apply pressure
- Overheated converter
Excess wear at TCC regulator/isolator valve bore allows TCC apply pressure to exhaust.
Recover hydraulic control and renew TCC performance by reconditioning the bore and installing Sonnax TCC regulator and isolator valve kit.
TCC Regulator & Isolator Valve Kit
- Isolator Valve
- Regulator Valve
- Regulator Sleeve
Any application, including '98-later EC3 units
Severe wear of the TCC regulator valve bore caused by oscillation of the OE valve allows regulated converter apply pressure to exhaust. This is a primary cause for TCC-related slip code P1870 and overheated converters. Exhausting apply pressure also diminishes line pressure, which can result in burnt clutches. Excess wear at the isolator valve bore reduces TCC apply pressure. Reconditioning the bore and installing Sonnax TCC regulator and isolator valve kit 77754-04K restores normal TCC operation by restablishing the hydraulic integrity of this circuit.
- Sleeve manufactured from highly wear-resistant aluminum
- Hardcoat anodized aluminum regulator valve combats premature wear
- Isolator valve lengthened to operate in unworn portions of the bore
- Annular grooves help center valves in bore to reduce future side-load wear
- Patent No. 6,990,966
- Patent No. 7,104,273
