Excessive shock or flares on 2-3 upshift or 3-2 downshift

Probable cause(s)
  1. A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve B defective
  2. A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve C defective
  3. 3rd clutch transmission fluid pressure switch defective
  4. Foreign material in separator plate orifice
  5. 2nd accumulator defective
  6. 3rd accumulator defective
  7. 2nd check ball stuck
  8. 2nd clutch defective
  9. 3rd clutch defective
Notes
  • Check for a stored DTC, and check for loose connections.
  • Test the solenoid valve function with the HDS.
  • Inspect the A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve body gasket, ATF feed pipes, and O-rings for wear and damage.
  • Check for clogged orifice in the transmission fluid pressure switch connector. If the orifice is clogged, remove it and clean the connector.
  • Check for clogged orifice in the separator plate. If the orifice is clogged, remove it and clean the separator plate orifice.
  • Check the 2nd and 3rd clutch pressures.
  • Inspect the 2nd and 3rd accumulator pistons, O-rings, and springs for wear and damage in the servo body.
  • Check the 2nd check ball for stick in the main valve body.
  • Inspect the secondary shaft, mainshaft, 2nd clutch, and 3rd clutch for wear and damage.
  • Inspect the clutch piston, clutch piston check valve, and O-rings. Check the spring retainer for wear and damage. Inspect the clearance between the clutch end-plate and the top disc. If the clearance is out of tolerance, inspect the clutch discs and plates for wear and damage, and inspect the clutch wave-plate height. If the discs and plates are worn or damaged, replace them as a set. If the wave-plate height is out of tolerance, replace the wave-plate. If they are OK, adjust the clearance with the clutch end-plate.
  • Inspect the 2nd and 3rd clutch feed pipes.
  • If the 2nd clutch feed pipe is scored, replace the end cover.
  • If the 3rd clutch feed pipe is scored, replace it and the O-rings under the feed pipe flange.
  • Replace the secondary shaft if the bushing for the 2nd clutch feed pipe is loose or damaged.
  • Replace the mainshaft if the bushing for the 3rd clutch feed pipe is loose or damaged.
