Symptoms:

  • TCC codes
  • TCC lining failure
  • Overheated converter
  • Poor converter & cooler oil flow

Cause:

Wear at the valve bore and spools of the lockup timing valve allows critical lube pressure to cross leak to adjacent circuits or escape to the sump. Converter charge and lube/cooler pressure and flow are negatively affected by a worn lockup timing valve.

Correction:

Installing the Sonnax oversized lockup timing valve kit can eliminate lost lube and pressure, restoring OE functionality to the converter charge and lube/cooler circuits.
