10L80 10R80 10R140 Main Pressure Regulator Valve Kit Sonnax 105740-12K 10L80 Generation 1 Only. Does not fit 10L80 Generation 2 units.
Wear in the main pressure regulator bore and on the outboard spool area of the valve is common in GM 10L80 (Gen. 1) and Ford 10R80 and 10R140 transmissions. This wear minimizes line pressure control resulting in delayed shift engagement, poor shift quality and burnt clutches. Wear at the inboard spool and bore can lead to converter apply issues.
Installing the drop-in Sonnax main pressure regulator valve kit 105740-12K eliminates the leakage of line pressure signal oil to exhaust with the incorporation of an extended front valve spool. This valve spool is 270% longer than the OE spool, so actuates in unworn areas of the bore. The O-ringed end plug provides a positive seal and prevents critical signal fluid from leaking to exhaust. Both of these Sonnax features ensure your units will have proper line pressure control through all drive ranges.

Wear in the bore and valve at the outboard spool area can allow line pressure signal oil to cross-leak to the exhaust. This prevents proper hydraulic control of the pressure regulator and reduces line pressure.
Restore proper hydraulic control by replacing worn parts with a Sonnax drop-in main pressure regulator valve kit with extended front land to restore proper clearances and flow by operating in unworn areas of the bore.
