Contains tools and parts for the repair of 3 units. Do some research to find out which one of the Caddy transmissions are closest to your Range Rover as far as case design. Authorize the repair or replacement only after you are comfortable. The electrical system, sensors, solenoids and thin coated wires are a common failure point.
A reading outside that range might mean the solenoid is defective. It's almost impossible to source this part in Europe and I would like to help him. Slipping is also a symptom of a transmission with low fluid. My inquiry is what parts will I buy when a total transmission oil and service should be done. In a nutshell, the biggest wear issues stem from wear in the valve body bores and in the torque converter clutch valve bore. The 5L40-E had been designed for 1. Variables Several other variables can affect the total transmission repair cost.
That will get all of the heavy duty parts in one package. But the complete Caddy 5L50's are not hard to find, and all of the heavy duty parts are inside. An upgrade to a Sonnox unit would be a good start. For a variety of reasons torque converter solenoid, worn valves, worn converter the converter fails and begins contaminating the oil with debris.

All the owners that i have talked to are horrified when i tell them that the box is sealed for life and that it will most likely fail at 150k ish. Automatic transmissions employ a lot of pressurised components that maintain their pressure through a variety of seals and valves. The electronically controlled transmission is designed around a fully articulated Ravigneaux gearset that is controlled by electronically timed application of several range-specific hydraulic clutches, in combination with mechanical one-way sprag clutches. Hard or erratic shifts are a symptom of a transmission in need of a rebuild - a faulty shift solenoid causes these same symptoms. This not only causes the oil level to rise, it also causes it to become thinner. Thus, when the fluid level is low, the transmission may slip, shift hard, shift erratically or not shift at all. Worn, Frayed, or Broken Shifter Cable: Over time, the shifter cable can become worn, frayed or even break.
For every 20 degrees you go over that limit you cut the life of the transmission by a factor of two.

When this happens the voltage will no longer pass through the wire and the solenoid will stop working. You get to speak with passionate experts that will give out our pricing immediately. No more second guessing how many clutches or what year and engine size and so on. When those seals start to wear, transmission fluid can escape, lowering the pressure. The is the place where the industries best transmission rebuilders work together to help solve the most complex automatic transmission problems. The basic spec for the 5L40E is below the torque output of the Td6, go figure! All the owners that i have talked to are horrified when i tell them that the box is sealed for life and that it will most likely fail at 150k ish. We even ship totally free of charge.
As such, it is subject to the typical electronic transmission failures. If the converter has failed in this fashion, the sump will be full of metallic debris. An ohm meter can be used to quickly test a solenoid. In a nutshell, the biggest wear issues stem from wear in the valve body bores and in the torque converter clutch valve bore. During our inspection process, even the smallest of inconsistencies are addressed. Worse still, the entire drive of the vehicle passes through this shaft, so when it wears down, the vehicle no longer drives at all—and tends to make a horrendous racket when it tries. Alto is the expert in the design and manufacture of bonded friction materials, stamped steel separator reaction discs, brake bands and gasket and seal kits.
When I did the one for the V8 Solstice, I found 5L40 and 5L50 parts and information very hard to find. Erratic shift patterns, overheating and speedometer calibration have all frustrated users of the 5L40E for decades. Cost wise, they are very competitive. Deluxe transmission rebuild kits include paper and rubber gaskets, metal clad seals, o-rings, friction clutches, steel plates, sometimes pistons, band, bushings, filter. Used transmissions, since there is no way to know how many miles are on them, may fail at any time. It is easy to think of the Chevrolet Suburban as one of the best selling full-size vehicles.
Low Transmission Fluid Level: Transmission fluid not only lubricates and helps cool the internal workings of the transmission, it also provides the pressure needed to shift gears. This is easily a savings of a couple hundred dollars. The computer controls the solenoid via relays and low voltage wires. The additional cost may be higher than installing a reman or rebuilt transmission--not to mention the extra downtime. Warranty Process: In the rare case of a transmission failure please call our warranty department where a representative will assist you in the warranty process.
