Sonnax rebuilt valve body F083 is no longer in production. Please check with your distributor for availability. For service inquiries, please see details on Sonnax’s Limited Lifetime Warranty on remanufactured valve bodies.


The lock-up solenoids have different resistances and can damage the transaxle processor if they are not matched correctly! If you ordered our guaranteed remanufactured AX4S for a Windstar, the intermediate clutch pack must be stacked with a wave plate or the transmission will have an extremely harsh 1-2 shift!

Lockup Solenoid Indentification

The lockup solenoids have different resistance and can damage the trans axle processor if they are not matched correctly.

Beginning in 1997 with Lincoln and midway through 1998 on other models, the lockup solenoid changes from tan to blue. The blue lockup solenoid has approximately 14 Ohms of resistance, as opposed to 3 Ohms of resistance on the lockup solenoids of earlier units. We STRONGLY RECOMMEND checking the color of ALL lockup solenoids from '97-later before ordering.

The blue arrow indicates the lockup solenoid location.
