A worn valve or valve body bore can result in incorrect pressures in the transmission, which may lead to poor performance or failure of the transmission. With the proper equipment, vacuum testing is an efficient way to determine if a valve/bore is worn or to verify if a valve repair was performed correctly. It’s an easy diagnostic technique that yields repeatable, numerical results for comparison and documentation.
Sonnax vacuum test plate kit 95740-VTP1 for Ford 6R60 and 6R80, and ZF6HP19, ZF6HP26 and ZF6HP32 units is an ideal tool for fast, easy testing. The plate and seal fit securely over the entire valve body casting to seal all the critical valve body passages at once. Strategically located test ports and exhaust holes allow all key casting areas to be vacuum tested quickly by just moving the vacuum test tip.
