Re: stalling only when coming to a stop

I think im going to be tackling this issue tomorrow or sat. after I drop the pan, replace the solenoid pack, replace the filters and put the pan back on, how many quarts should I put back into the tranny before driving it to get it hot so I can check it?

Re: stalling only when coming to a stop

Normally with the torque converter full, it will take 6 to 7 Qts in the pan. When i did mine, i just kept it on the low side of the dipstick when cold and did a final check/refill when hot.

Re: stalling only when coming to a stop

so is it safe to say that after I replace everything and get the pan back on, I can dump 6 quarts back in and then drive it to get it warm to check? I just want to make sure I dont put too much. nor do I want to have too little. how about doing a proper relearn process that a lot of people seem to think is necessary... do I absolutely need to do the relearn process with the proper scan tool or can I do without it?

Re: stalling only when coming to a stop

Put 5 Qts in and check the stick, when no signs of fluid, drop another 1/2 Qt in and check, until you see the level on the stick. Then drive and warm it up and then use the hot markings.
Relearning is not necessary for a fluid/filter change. The manual states to do so when changing/rebuilding a tranny, a TCM or solenoid block. With the DRBIII scanner they don't do any relearning, but in fact they clear all the memory of the TCM, so that it starts from zero. It will then in a quicker way learn to make nice shifts.
If you don't do the quick learning, it will take some more time for the TCM to shift nicely, but it will finally do it.

Re: stalling only when coming to a stop

so, I just checked the fluid (havent gotten around to changing anything, just checking the fluid to see where its at) and after driving it for about 15 minutes, its at 3/4 the way towards HOT. wjjeeps.com says that acceptable. should it be filled all the way up to HOT? ...maybe it is just a bit low... thoughts?

*edit. Just drove it for 30 minutes. Dip stick reads hot. Seems like there's plenty of fluid in there.

Re: stalling only when coming to a stop

After half an hour drive the tranny should be at normal operating temperature. The fluid level should be between the both hot marks.

Re: stalling only when coming to a stop

ok. just dropped the pan. pulled both filters. removed clip harness for solenoid pack and removed the valve body. I replaced the solenoid pack and then noticed a broken piece of spring on the floor. upon review, the accumulator spring broke. so, should I just replace the accumulator spring or replace a lot more? does a transgo shift kit replace this as well? any thoughts on the route I should take here?

Re: stalling only when coming to a stop

Have a look first if no damage to the piston bore was done by the broken spring.
This could be a good opportunity to install a transgo reprogramming shift kit.
However, this kit comes with 3 new main springs for 3 accumulators and it will reuse 2 other main springs, but when i remember well, all old main springs are the same. I installed the 45RFE-HD2 kit, which has some components in it which you only can install when doing a complete tranny rebuild. For example some springs for the oil pump valves and a stronger snap ring for the underdrive pressure plate in the input clutch pack. But many have done this kit without changing these parts.

Re: stalling only when coming to a stop

Hmmm. Ok. So which kit would be best in this situation? I may take all the springs out and inspect them to make sure the accumulator spring is the only broken one.

Re: stalling only when coming to a stop




So here's the accumulator valve and spring. You can see it took a beating. All the other springs and valves are in tact. Do any of the shift kits come with a replacement valve?

Re: stalling only when coming to a stop

Some damage on the inside of the piston will not do any harm, the important thing is that the bore in the valve housing has no damage. As far as i know shift kits will not come with any piston. Transgo has 2 shiftkits, but i donīt know what the more simple kit has in it. Maybe some googling will help you out.
