Complaint:

  • Lube failures
  • Overheating & reduced lube feed

Cause:

Based on early-style OE design, the valve can result in excess exhaust for lube oil. Late-style OE valve fixes this problem but is not available.


Correction:

Prevent loss of lube and restore normal operation by installing Sonnax lockup shift valve kit.

Early OE Honda 5-spool lockup shift valves can exhaust lube oil through the valve when in lockup, resulting in lube related issues. This Sonnax drop-in, updated lockup shift valve kit 98892-16K eliminates the exhaust circuit for lube oil at the lockup shift valve location (see illustration).

  • Direct drop in replacement, no tools required
  • Eliminates the need for external 2nd gear lube update on early versions
  • Updated lube control

NOTE:

This kit fits several Honda 5- speed models. However, model to model, the appearance of valve bodies and the location of the lockup shift valve bore may vary. The BVGA 0307, 3.5L Pilot model is illustrated here. See Honda 98892-16K Application Chart for a detailed guide.

You need this if...

A vacuum test at the ports indicated should hold 18 in-Hg or more. If the vacuum test reading is less, the casting should be replaced due to excessive bore wear.
