• Poor line pressure control
  • Poor Reverse engagement


Oscillation of the aluminum valve wears out the pressure regulator bore.


Eliminate excess leakage by reaming the valve body bore and installing the oversized replacement pressure regulator valve.

Many vehicles with either a ZF4HP14 or ZF4HP18 transmission experience poor line pressure control due to a worn pressure regulator bore. The past fix was to replace the valve body, which is expensive and hard to find. These problems are often caused by wear from the oscillation of the aluminum valve in the valve body bore. Line/balance, modulated TV, and converter/cooler pressures then leak past the valve and exhaust to the sump or cross leak into other circuits. Excessive leakage can be eliminated by installing Sonnax oversized pressure regulator valve 85991-01.

  • The five spool diameters on this valve are slightly larger than the OE valve, allowing the valve body bore to be modified to restore the hydraulic integrity of the assembly
  • Hardcoat anodized aluminum valve combats premature wear
