Sonnax test manifold kit can prove or disprove internal mechanical sealing ability only; it does not test the integrity of the electrical coil and contacts. See instructions for details.
The leading cause of solenoid failure in Ford 6R60, 6R75, 6R80, ZF6HP19/26/32 (Gen. 1) and ZF6HP21/28/34 (Gen. 2) units is an inability to maintain an internal mechanical seal, resulting in a multitude of drivability concerns. Since it is not an electrical failure, it can be difficult to evaluate whether a solenoid is the cause of a particular problem.
Sonnax solenoid test manifold kit 95430-VTK allows quick, easy, cost-effective pass/fail verification of the solenoid's internal sealing integrity, taking the guess work out of replacing solenoids.
Ford 6R60, 6R75, 6R80 solenoids function very similarly to the the ZF6 Gen. 1 versions (although with a significantly lower failure rate) and can be tested using these manifolds, though the colors differ. See chart below for reference:
|Manifold||ZF6 Solenoid||6R60 or 6R75 Solenoid||6R80 Solenoid|
|Blue||Blue Cap||Black Cap||Black Snout|
|Yellow||Yellow Cap||Brown Cap||Brown Snout (Must be energized to test)|
Did you know? Sonnax will pay cash for OE Gen. 1 solenoids. For more information, please visit the Solenoid Core Purchase Program page.
