Symptoms:

  • Soft shifts
  • Low line pressure
  • Harsh shifts
  • High line pressure in Reverse
  • Clutch & band failures
  • Low converter pressure
  • High line pressure

Cause:

Continuous oscillation of the pressure regulator valve causes valve body bore wear, which results in line pressure irregularities and valve instability. Severe wear of the boost valve sleeve allows EPC and reverse oil leakage.

Correction:

Sonnax oversized pressure regulator valve and boost valve kit allows the valve body bore to be restored to normal operating condition.
