Symptoms:

  • Forward & direct clutch failure
  • Separator plate cracking
  • Cross leaks

Cause:

Lack of reinforcement allows oil to push separator plate up, resulting in cross-leaks and cracked plate.

Correction:

Sonnax bolt-on plate provides mechanical clamping of lower valve body plate and gasket eliminating cross-leaks, cracks or plate flexing.

The valve body stiffener plate in the 2-3 accumulator area was eliminated on '01-later Ford 4R70W, 4R70W, 4R75E and 4R75W transmissions. Oil pressure builds up in unused cavities under the separator plate causing the plate to flex upwards as much as .010", allowing forward and direct oil passages to cross leak. Sonnax valve body retainer plate kit 76507F-01K bolts in place and provides the clamping force to compress the lower valve body gasket. This prevents cross-leaks, separator plate flexing and cracking so that cracked separator plates can be reused.

  • Allows previously cracked separator plates to be reused
  • Prevents cross-leaking

Upon inspection, there are signs of poor compression in the underside area of the used gasket. Poor compression indicates probable forward and direct oil cross leaks.
