CAPSULE WITH CHECK BALL, 700R4 / 4L60E EXTENDS 3-4 CLUTCH LIFE
Servo Release Check Valve Kit
Part No. 77701-076
2nd Gear Servo Release
Technicians would like to find a way to successfully extend the life of 3-4 clutches, and improve the 2-3 shift feel. They have been trying, with limited success, since the GM 4L60 (700-R4) and 4L60-E series transmissions were introduced. Inadequate metering of 2nd gear band servo release oil causes 3-4 clutch failure. The 3-4 clutch and 2nd gear band are not properly synchronized. Sonnax servo release check valve kit 77701-076 is a unique solution that combines an orifice with a ball check valve to resolve these problems.
- Improved design meters servo release oil, reducing 3-4 clutch failure
- Provides sufficient exhaust so that 3-2 downshifts are smooth
- Calibrates 3-4 clutch feed orifice without creating shift concerns
- Don’t confuse the OE checkball with the one found in Sonnax servo release check valve kit (77701-076). Although they look similar, they have completely different functions. The Sonnax kit is a unique solution that combines an orifice with a ball check valve to tune 3-4 shifts, but it MUST be used with a properly functioning OE 3rd accumulator checkball assembly.
