Posted by Regis on Wednesday, July 17th, It was first put into production inbut only remained in production through the model year.
It was eventually replaced by the AXS4 automatic transmission. While an overall decent transmission, there are some common issues we should keep an eye open for. It contains four electric solenoids that are used to move the shift valves found in the valve body, along with one that is used to control the look up torque converter. The solenoids consist of a coil of wire that when energized, form a magnetic field.
This magnetic field moves a plunger that is attached to a valve. When the current is cut to the solenoid, the magnetic field disappears and a built in spring is used to return the valve to its original position. It is within the coil of wire that most problems occur.

The coil of wire may break due to excessive vibration or wxod short out cause by the protective plastic coating melting from excessive transmission fluid temperatures. To quickly check axodd solenoid, get yourself a hand held ohm meter. Measuring the resistance coming off the two wires attached to the solenoid, you want to look for a reading of around 20 — 30 ohms. A reading outside this range may indicate that you have a defective solenoid.
The good news is that replacing the solenoids is not very expensive and they are fairly easy to replace. As such it is vulnerable to overheating if abused.
Abuse may include towing over the factory recommended load limit or drag racing forf car. Ideally you want fkrd keep the transmission below a maximum of degrees. For every 20 degrees you go over this limit you cut the life span of the transmission by a factor of two. At temperatures as low as degrees, the transmission fluid can start to turn to varnish, at which point it loses its ability to properly lubricate the transmission and a total transmission failure is just around the corner.
axoe To protect the transmission from overheatinginvest in a good quality aftermarket transmission cooler. It is also recommended that you switch over to a synthetic based transmission fluid. Synthetic based transmission fluids have much better properties thanoil based organic fluids and will not start to break down until much higher transmission fluid temperatures.
Sooner or later you will be faced with a decision to replace your transmission.

forrd I strongly recommend that you invest in a re-manufactured transmission over one that was simple rebuilt.
A rebuilt transmission will not. You must be logged in to post a comment.
