Symptoms:

  • Code 39, 740, 1870
  • Falls out of lockup when hot
  • Overheated converter
  • Shudder
  • Low cooler flow

Cause:

Wear of the TCC apply valve bore allows leakage of TCC signal oil to exhaust and the apply valve to move into the TCC release position.

Correction:

Install Sonnax drop-in TCC apply valve kit to restore hydraulic integrity.

In GM 4T60 and 4T60-E units, the TCC apply valve acts as the switch valve for converter apply and release. The TCC regulator valve controls TCC apply pressure. Both the apply valve and the regulator valve can cause slip codes. When the apply valve is worn, it often returns to the unapply position even though the TCC apply solenoid remains energized. Generally the apply valve causes larger changes in slip RPM as the converter cycles from apply to full release. The regulator valve causes a more gradual load and heat-sensitive slip. Check for changes in slip RPM with a scanner or changes in cooler flow with the Sonnaflow®. FM-01KA. Installing Sonnax TCC apply valve kit 84754-16K restores hydraulic integrity.
