A worn valve or valve body bore can result in incorrect hydraulic pressures, leading to poor performance or failure of the transmission.
Vacuum testing is an efficient way to evaluate wear and the effectiveness of repairs. Measure the integrity of a circuit by applying vacuum and comparing the vacuum held by that circuit to a known maximum standard.
The Sonnax vacuum test stand kit is a great alternative to building your own testing rig that includes an assortment of testing tips, an anodized test stand to withstand years of use, plus easy-to-follow instructions for assembly, calibration and use.
While a properly calibrated and maintained test stand will give consistent vacuum reading results, evaluating those results requires establishing your own pass/fail standards. Detailed information on vacuum testing and establishing pass/fail standards can be found in the Sonnax vacuum test stand kit instructions.
The popular Sonnax Roadshow is a free seminar on vacuum testing with live demonstrations and hands-on testing. Check out the schedule for a Roadshow near you!
