Wear at the valve body bore allows oil to exhaust or cross leak.
This modified manual valve has lengthened spools for reduced leakage and better stability within the bore and at the linkage.
Delayed forward engagement, burned forward clutch, and/or forward clutch psi low by 10-15 psi in vehicles with AXOD, AXODE, AX4N/S or 4F50N transmissions are common complaints. These are often caused by a worn valve body at the manual valve bore, allowing excessive oil leakage. Replace the worn OE manual valve with Sonnax manual valve 96201-05 to prevent oil leakage and increase stability at the linkage.
