6L80E, 6L90E Pressure Regulator Valve Kit Sonnax Part Number 104520-03K.
6L45E, 6L50E, 6L80E, 6L90E Pressure Regulator Valve Kit
Part No. 104520-03K
GM 6L45, 6L50, 6L80 and 6L90 units may exhibit multiple line pressure and cooler/converter/lube flow problems due to excess wear in the pressure regulator bore. Deterioration at the balance spool end allows critical fluid loss, resulting in high line pressure, harsh shifts, and overheating due to reduced cooler/converter flow. Wear at the outboard spool robs converter feed pressure and lowers line pressure, resulting in soft shifts and burnt clutches. Installing Sonnax pressure regulator valve kit 104520-03K restores the hydraulic integrity of these circuits for proper line pressure control in all ranges.
- Hardcoat anodized aluminum valve combats premature wear
- Lengthened critical spools operate in non-worn portion of bore for added stability and wear prevention.
- Annular grooves help center valve in bore to reduce future side-load wear
- No reaming or special tools required
Pump must be removed to install kit.
- Drill Bit
- Checkballs (2) 1 Extra
- Low line pressure
- Burnt clutches
- Harsh shifts
- Low cooler flow
- Loss of lube oil
- Overheated transmission & converter
- High line pressure
Wear of the OE pressure regulator valve casting bore and shuttle valve sleeve due to continuous valve oscillation prevents proper line pressure control.
Install the drop-in Sonnax pressure regulator and shuttle valve kit with upgraded materials and increased critical valve-to-bore sealing engagements to restore hydraulic integrity and prevent future wear.
