Symptoms:

  • Reduced band life
  • Reduced clutch life
  • 2-3 Bind-up
  • 2nd Gear starts
  • Poor shift quality

Cause:

Wear at the accumulator piston pin bore allows oil cross leakage.

Correction:

Install this oversized accumulator pin after the bore of the accumulator piston is modified to restore proper clearance and circuit integrity.

A burnt band on the GM 4L60, 200-4R or 325-4L transmission can be created by accumulator cross leaks. A driveability complaint of 2nd gear starts or 2-3 bind-up can result from excessive piston wear. These complaints can be caused by oil cross leakage between the piston and pin in the 1-2 and 3-4 accumulators. This is due to the constant oscillating motion of the aluminum accumulator pistons on the steel pin.Band apply pressure is simultaneously sent to the accumulators and band.

The problem occurs when accumulator control oil and band apply circuits cross leak. Accumulator control oil will bleed into 2nd apply or 4th apply and drag the band/clutch due to imbalanced oil circuits. Ream the bore and install Sonnax oversized accumulator pin and reamer kit 77999 to resolve these problems.

  • The working diameter of the Sonnax pin is slightly oversized, allowing the bore of the accumulator piston to be modified to restore the hydraulic integrity of the assembly
  • Eliminates the need to replace the expensive accumulator piston, and is more durable than a bushing
