Subject: High Pitch Noise/Pump Whine
Application: 2007 and Newer Ford F450 and F550
Issue Date: April, 2014

Torqshift 6/6R140
High Pitch Noise/Pump Whine
If you have a high pitch noise when the engine is running there are a few things to check.
1. Check line pressure with gauge. Is the pressure gauge smooth?
If yes, the pressure regulator system is in good shape and no air is entering the system.
If no, inspect for cracked filer or poor seal. A cross leak or place for air to be sucked into system.

2. Is the noise there sitting still and in gear?


If yes, Inspect converter and converter hub bearing and pump.
If no, inspect transmission gear train and drive train. This bulletin does not apply.

3. Is the noise there whenever the engine is running?


If yes, Check converter hub bearing and pump.
If no this bulletin does not apply.

Ford 6R140 transmission has no pump bushing. Ford now uses a bearing like some of the Mercedes
transmission. This bearing is also failing with low miles as seen in figure 1. Inspect the bearing for pit-
ting and wear marks. At the time of this bulletin the bearing is only sold as part of the complete pump.

Subject: Secondary Pressure and Transfer Clutch
Pressure Testing
Application: Subaru
Issue Date: April, 2014

Lineartronic CVT Gen 1


Secondary Pressure and Transfer Clutch Pressure Testing
Warning: You need a 1000 PSI gauge and hose to test secondary pressure. I would suggest using a
transducer for added safety.

To check secondary pulley pressure (line pressure) we are going to need to remove the pressure plug
on the passenger’s side of the transmission shown in figure 1. The fitting threads on the secondary
pressure plug are 14mm x 1.5mm. The pressure is high and we need a 1000 PSI gauge set. I would
recommend the use of a transducer or the Subaru testing equipment.

The Subaru part numbers for testing equipment:

18801AA000 gauge
18681AA000 fitting
498897700 adaptor set

Figure 1
Copyright © 2014 ATRA All Rights Reserved JW • Page 1 of 3
Lineartronic CVT Gen 1 #1604
Secondary Pressure and Transfer Clutch Pressure Testing
With the transducer or gauge hooked up check and record pressure readings at idle in park, reverse,
neutral and drive. Then test reverse at stall and drive at stall. In figure 2 is the chart for line pressure
specification for reference. If line pressure is low some of the area’s to look at would be a plugged
filter, bad pump and leaks in the secondary pulley circuit.

Secondary Line Pressure


Range Throttle Brake Secondary Line Pressure PSI
Stall Drive, Reverse Full Open On 652-870 PSI
Idling Park, Neutral Full Close Off 72-218 PSI
Figure 2

Transfer clutch pressure


In figure 3 is the transfer clutch pressure port. Install gauge or transducer in port. With scan tool enter
FWD mode and test should show 0 psi on tap in all ranges. If pressure is shown, there may be a prob-
lem with transfer clutch control solenoid or valve.

Application: Honda
Issue Date: April, 2014

Hondas with External MLPS Switch


Rough/Delayed Engagement, Range Indicator Problems
After overhaul you may experience delayed or rough engagements into forward or reverse. Gear
range indicator light problems may also occur.

The cause of these complaints is a loose fit between the manual lever selector shaft into the MLPS
switch. This happens when the case cover is being installed. The technician sees that the roll pin on
the selector shaft is not lined up with the key way in the case cover. A pair of pliers is used to rotate
the shaft into position. Twisting the shaft with pliers or vise grips will collapse the shaft causing a loose
fit. Simply spread the shaft open to obtain a good fit between the shaft and MLPS switch.

Transmission: TH400
Subject: Diagnosing Late Shifts or No Kick Down,
Detent Solenoid Problems
Application: GM
Issue Date: April, 2014

TH400
Diagnosing Late Shifts or No Kick Down
An oldie but a goodie that has plagued many technicians. When a 400 has late shifts, it either has no
vacuum to the modulator or the detent solenoid is active (solenoid is open or leaks). If there’s no kick
down it’s usally an innactive detent solenoid (solenoid stuck closed or no current). A quick way to find
out what’s at fault is with a pressure gauge.

Late Shifts
Measure the line pressure in neutral and drive. The pressure readings should be the same in both
ranges 55-80lbs. If the line pressure jumps to 95-105 in drive and drops back to 55-80lbs when the
lever is placed back in neutral, the detent solenoid circuit is active and is the cause of the late shifts. If
the line pressure is high in neutral and in drive, it’s a vacuum flow or modulator related problem.

Causes of Late Shifts-Active Solenoid Circuit (High Pressure in Drive Only)


1-The solenoid is stuck open
2-Solenoid bolts are loose
3-Has a gasket installed on with an “open winding solenoid”
4-Seperator plate feed orifice is missing,covered or plugged
5-Detent regulator valve stuck open
6-The solenoid gasket is missing or leaking on a “closed winding soleonid”
7-Has battery current to the solenoid with accelerator pedal in closed throttle position

No Kick-Down and Early WOT Shifts


Attach a remote starter switch to the battery positive post and to the soleonid case connector. Line
pressure should be 55-80lbs in nuetral. Place the lever in the drive position and energize the solenoid,
check the line pressure. If there’s no increase in line pressure while in drive with solenoid energized
see “inactive solenoid” causes.

TH400 #1606
Diagnosing Late Shifts or No Kick Down
Inactive Solenoid Circuit Causes: No Kick Down and Early WOT Shifts
1-The solenoid is stuck closed
2-The seperator plate feed orifice is too big
3-Detent regulator valve is stuck closed

If there’s a line pressure increase in drive with remote stater switch, repeat the test using the vehicles
electrical system to energize the solenoid. When using the vehicle electrical system, if there still is no
pressure increase then there is a blown fuse, bad switch or a resistance problem. The late GM trucks
from 1987 on utilize a TPS triggered relay that commonly fails.

Open Winding Solenoid Closed Winding Solenoid

Open winding solenoids have a Closed winding solenoids require a


rubber gasket molded into the gasket. If the gasket is left out it will

is installed, it will create a leak in the
circuit and cause late shifts.

If you have one that will not kick down, has line pressure
increase with solenoid enegrized. Remove the gear and
valve from the governor. Blow air through the gear end of
valve, air must exit at balance port.

#1606 TH400
Diagnosing Late Shifts or No Kick Down
When working on any GM transmission. High line pressure from a pressure regulator problem will
only cause rough shifts, never late shifts.

The 400 detent solenoid is tied into the modulator circuit. A leak in the solenoid circuit will cause a
pressure boost created by the modulator circuit in drive only and late shifts.

PCSV-A: When the oil pressure is required for OD clutch or Low & reverse brake, this solenoid valve
must be off.

PCSV-B: When the oil pressure is required for 2nd brake or Reverse clutch, this solenoid valve must be
off. If the manual valve ‘R’ position is selected, the pressure will be applied to the reverse clutch. That
is the reason why the reverse clutch is not engaged in 2nd and 4th gear (PCSV-B off condition)

PCSV-C: When this solenoid valve is off, UD clutch will be engaged.

PCSV-D: When this solenoid is off, the damper clutch is released.

SCSV (On/Off): When this solenoid valve is off, LR brake pressure is released and the OD clutch pres-
sure is applied. That is the reason why the 3rd gear failsafe (mechanically failed 3rd gear condition) is
possible when the all solenoid valves are off including this solenoid valve.

VFS Solenoid Valve: Changes the line pressure according to throttle open angle (engine load) and shift
ranges.

Slips In Reverse
Do you have a Land Rover, Jag or BMW that slips in reverse? Have you already tried another valve
body, solenoids and/or a new C clutch drum and it still slips? Have a look at the C clutch drum shaft
bushings.

Slips in Reverse
The C clutch drum shaft bushings not only provide support for the shaft and drum. The bushings are
also critical seals for the reverse hydraulic circuit. Most often the bushings may have an appearance of
“in good condition”. You should always place the C drum shaft over the input planet shaft and check
the bushing fit one end at a time.

If the bushings are worn reverse oil will be dumped into the lube circuit and pan. Replacment bushings
are availible. The o-rings and teflon sealing rings are equally important as well.
