Hydraulics Fundamentals Part V: Manual Valves
The OE manual valve in Ford 5R110W units is prone to anodization flaking and degradation resulting in premature wear of the valve and loss of hydraulic control. Sonnax offers a slightly oversized direct replacement manual valve 36940-22 that outperforms the OE valve. This drop-in Zip Valve™ installs quickly and easily, no reaming or special tools required.Learn More About Zip Valve™ Drop-In Repairs
Sonnax valve body layouts provide a detailed overview of individual units making it quick and easy to determine what’s available for the specific valve body you’re working on. See all Sonnax valve body layouts.
Visually inspect low/reverse clutch circuits (land between two most outboard circuits) and line pressure/direct clutch circuits (land between two most inboard circuits), as wear is common. In these cases, Sonnax [36940-11] should be installed instead.
