A/T Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid Valve A Test

  1. Connect the HDS to the DLC (A).
  1. Select Clutch Pressure Control (Linear) Solenoid A in Miscellaneous Test Menu on the HDS.
    NOTE: If the HDS does not communicate with the PCM, troubleshoot the DLC circuit.
  1. Test A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve A with the HDS.
    • If the valve tests OK, the test is complete. Disconnect the HDS.
    • If the valve does not test OK, follow the instructions on the HDS.
    • If the valve does not test OK, and the HDS does not determine the cause, go to Step 4 .

  1. Disconnect the A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve A connector.
  1. Measure the A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve A resistance at the connector terminals.
    Standard:
    3−10 Ω

  1. Connect a jumper wire from the negative battery terminal to the solenoid valve A connector terminal No. 2, and connect another jumper wire from the positive battery terminal to the connector terminal No. 1.
    • If a clicking sound is heard, the valve is OK. Reconnect the connector, and install all removed parts.
    • If no clicking sound is heard, go to Step 8 .

  1. Remove the bolt (A) securing the harness cover.
  1. Remove the bolt (B) securing the ATF cooler line/hose bracket.
  1. Remove the transmission hanger/air cleaner housing bracket (C).

  1. Remove the mounting bolts and A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve A.
  1. Remove the ATF pipe (B), ATF joint pipes (C), O-rings (D), and gasket (E).
  1. Check the fluid passage of the solenoid valve for contamination.

  1. Connect a jumper wire from the negative battery terminal to A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve A connector terminal No. 2, and connect another jumper wire from the positive battery terminal to the connector terminal No. 1. Make sure A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve A moves.
  1. Disconnect one of the jumper wires, and check valve movement at the fluid passage in the valve body mounting surface. If the valve binds or moves sluggishly, or if the solenoid valve does not operate, replace A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve A.
  1. Clean the mounting surfaces and fluid passages of the solenoid valve body and transmission housing.
  1. Install the new gasket with blue side down; white side up on the transmission housing.
  1. Install the ATF pipe and ATF joint pipes, and install the new O-rings over the ATF joint pipes.
  1. Install A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve A.
  1. Install the transmission hanger/air cleaner housing bracket, and secure the ATF cooler line/hose bracket and harness cover with the bolts.
  1. Check the connector for rust, dirt, or oil, clean or repair if necessary, then connect the connector securely.
