Uncovering the Root Cause of Pressure & Complaints – The Critical Role of Solenoid Modulator & AFL Valves
The Aisin AW TF-80SC and TF-81SC solenoid modulator valve establishes and controls feed pressure to a variety of solenoids. High or low solenoid feed pressure will adversely affect shift functions controlled by those solenoids. Wear at the inboard end of the solenoid modulator valve circuit causes excessive feed pressure. This floods the solenoids and reduces reaction time, resulting in harsh shifting and high line pressure. Wear at the outboard and mid-section reduces solenoid modulator pressure. This loss has the most effect on engagements and boost oil for line pressure rise. Sonnax oversized solenoid modulator valve kit 39741-18K corrects wear in all areas, restoring pressure control and OE pressure calibration. This kit can be used in either of two valve body locations. The hardcoat anodized valve with annular groves and lengthened front spool combined with a wear-resistant sleeve offer precision control and extended service life.
