These complaints can be caused by continuous oscillation of the valve causing bore wear, allowing valuable line pressure and converter feed pressure to exhaust.
Restore proper hydraulic control by refurbishing the bore and installing an improved and oversized Sonnax pressure regulator valve and new boost assembly to match ratios and OE pressure curves.
Must measure EPC spool.
Toyota A340E/F series transmissions may exhibit multiple line pressure and converter-related problems due to excessive wear in the main pressure regulator bore. Wear at the inboard balance spools allows critical line pressure fluid loss, resulting in excessively high pressure, harsh shifts and reduced cooler/converter flow. Wear at the outboard spools robs converter feed pressure and lowers line pressure, resulting in soft shifts and burnt clutches and brakes. The Sonnax oversized pressure regulator valve kit 97741-06K for type 3 and 4 units allows the bore to be refurbished and the hydraulic integrity restored for proper line pressure in all ranges. The improved and oversized Sonnax pressure regulator valve is also paired with a new and improved boost valve assembly to maintain the correct pressure curves and restore typically worn OE hydraulic clearances at the critical EPC, Reverse and Cutback circuits within the assembly.
Sonnax valve body layouts provide a detailed overview of individual units making it quick and easy to determine what’s available for the specific valve body you’re working on. See all Sonnax valve body layouts.
