Excessive shock or flares on 4-5 upshift or 5-4 downshift
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 separator plate. If the orifice is clogged, remove it and clean the separator plate orifice.
Check the 4th and 5th clutch pressures.
Inspect the 4th and 5th accumulator pistons, O-rings, and springs for wear and damage in the servo body.
Inspect the mainshaft, secondary shaft, 4th clutch, and 5th 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 4th clutch feed pipes. If the 4th 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 4th clutch feed pipe is loose or damaged.
