Vehicles with Ford AXOD transmissions may exhibit TCC apply and release problems and reduced cooler/lube flow. These complaints can be caused by severe wear of the bypass clutch control plunger valve sleeve. Line pressure entering the sleeve will be allowed to exhaust without properly stoking the converter bypass control valve. Sonnax has developed a tightly toleranced bypass clutch control plunger valve kit 96201-06K that restores hydraulic integrity and will eliminate these problems.

  • Precision sleeve is manufactured from high-quality aluminum to prevent wear
  • Hardcoat anodized aluminum plunger valve combats premature wear
  • Spool length of the valve has also been lengthened to help prevent oil leakage
  • Annular grooves have been added to the valve to aid in centering it in the sleeve, which prevents wear related to side-loading
  • Drop-in Zip Valve™ parts install quickly and easily.
