Problems with this transmission start with solenoids, reaching the end of their service life, or when the valve body gets clogged together with valves, transmitting the pressure in line. It leads to the burning of friction components or even drums.Filters for both modifications 4R100\ E4OD are the same and differ by high scoop.The kit of frictions gets fully replaced in case of burnt ATF.
