2002 to 2013 Toyota and Lexus vehicles equipped with a U150, U151 and U250 series automatic transmissions with high mileage may have a worn out B1 and B2 switch boost valves and bushings as well as the main line pressure boost valve and bushing.
The computer determines the appropriate line pressure value in accordance with the calculated load input. The ECM will then send the amount of current needed to the SLT solenoid to raise or lower the main line pressure in accordance to the driving conditions. Adequate main line pressure is required to provide enough clamping force under all load conditions to prevent slipping as well as to achieve proper shift quality.
A compromised EPC boost valve and bushing will cause complaints of slow or lazy pressure boost, soft shifts, flare shifts, burnt frictions and burnt lock-up clutch can occur. These can also be accompanied by a wide variety of gear ratio, shift and solenoid performance codes. Main line pressure also acts on the B1 and B2 switch boost valves to control when they apply. Consequently, when these boost valves stick, apply and release of the B1 and B2 is impaired causing a bind-up between two gears.
Features and benefits:
The TransGo drop-in USA-made hardened steel boost valves and bushing assemblies provides you with a durable direct replacement for the soft aluminum OEM assembly that are prone to wear.
