Symptoms:
  • Burnt brake clutches
  • Burnt clutches
  • Delayed Forward
  • Delayed Reverse
  • Soft upshifts
Cause:

Wear of the boost valve sleeve allows leakage and cross leakage of the Reverse, EPC and Cutback circuits.

Correction:

This patent pending Sonnax boost valve kit restores the hydraulic integrity of the circuits and replaces all three OE ratios.

Cause:

Correction:

This patent pending Sonnax boost valve kit restores the hydraulic integrity of the circuits and replaces all three OE ratios.

In Toyota A340E/F late units the OE steel cutback/EPC and reverse boost valves wear the inside diameters of the cast aluminum boost sleeve due to continuous reciprocation as they provide biasing force to adjust main line pressure. This wear allows critical Reverse, EPC and Cutback fluid pressures to leak or cross leak, creating numerous drivability complaints and part failures.

Replacing the OE assembly requires matching the correct valve spool ratio (three-dot, two-dot or no-dot sleeve) (Figure 1) to ensure proper line pressure. The Sonnax dual-ratio boost valve assembly 97741-01K not only restores hydraulic integrity, but also provides for all OE ratios in one assembly. By selecting either the large diameter priority or small diameter priority EPC boost valve and adding optional shims to the OE pressure regulator valve spring face, all three of the OE ratios can be achieved with the one assembly.

• Sleeve is made from high-quality aluminum for wear resistance

• Valve is hardcoat anodized to reduce wear

• Unique priority diameter design allows for dual ratio in one assembly

• Additional shims allow for tuning to the third OE ratio

  • Patent No. 8,955,533
