Technical issues and repair guidelines

The torque converter, valve body and solenoids in the 4L30E transmission have a relatively limited resource. The operability of these components is gradually deteriorating because of the friction lock-up wear-out and accumulation of varnish in the narrowest places leading to the oil pressure drop and oil starvation, that results in a harmful impact on bushings, which have a proper resource.Operations with the worn-out pump liner and contaminated ATF lead to the oil pump damage. Plastic washer-bearings are also considered to be spare parts to be replaced.

The valve body after 200 thousand kilometers requires a statutory disassembly, repair and cleaning from varnish. The linear pressure solenoid was introduced in the valve body design for the brake band drive gear for regulation of the band pressure on the drum by means of PWM. Solenoids with exhausted resource are considered to be a typical problem in the electrical part of the transmission. The line pressure solenoid is also frequently replaced.

It is a reliable well-regulated transmission with a robust service resource for its components. After a simple overhaul this transmission can additionally operate for several years, if you properly monitor the ATF condition.
