Let me add that when I first started the car I got an error and was in limp mode. As far as refilling, I found a plastic fitting online that would connect to hose and to the oil pan fitting. Did you need to do any re-programing to the transmission after you installed it? They were great to deal with. I think you really set the tone when you were too lazy to search to figure out the difference between an 09G and 01M and had no idea what transmission was in your car? Unlike our competitors, we do not do any reaming or valve oversizing by hand. When you order your parts from Cobra Transmission you are confident that you have purchased the very best. We are working on providing a re-manufactured valve body with any and all updates possible to help reduce problems with this unit.
If I can figure out how to post pics here, I'll share my diagrams for where the screws go and where the wires go. Once you get 2 bolts in you're good to go. They sent me a valve body and I sent my old one back. The valves and bores get upgraded as well, and multiple quality inspections are performed throughout the build. Installing the wrong valve body will result in a lack of lubrication to the gear train causing catastrophic failure! No brackets around any of the numbers. I could try a tcm from a 2004 audi. I basically just poured the fluid in the funnel and let gravity do the work.
The valve bodies have one other distinction for the late and early; the transmission oil cooler is on the transmission or is remote off the transmission. Did any codes pop up? I changed the valve body in it because I was getting extremely hard jerks. From June 2004 and up early version the sensors are not placed on the valve body. I finally got the nerve to do the valve body swap. It was slow but worked great. So when do you want me to fly out at my expense and replace your valve body just because I am a nice guy? You don't really need any special tools, except to refill the transmission.
Did you need to do any re-programing to the transmission after you installed it? Or did any codes pop up? The job was intimidating, but in retrospect pretty easy. They sent me a valve body and I sent my old one back. It does not have the two sensors G193 and G194, therefore the tcm sees this as an error. Design vary based upon location of the cooler and whether or not the valve body has pressure switches. The solenoid that regulates that clutch to apply is the N282 solenoid. The 6 speed Tiptronics all had problems between 60-90k miles. This leads to the problems you experience when shifting gears.
By the use of these machines, we eliminate human error that is very common when valve bodies are machined by hand. Again, the hardest part is probably getting the solenoid wires to release, but once you have it figured out, it is not too hard. Did you need to do any re-programing to the transmission after you installed it? Yes, this job is not too difficult if you have some basic abilities. I know a fair bit about them. However, long term reliability soon became an issue, especially with the valve body.
This is what we know so far. Was hoping I could find a software flash but can't find anything yet. The accumulator piston and spring that will fall out when the valve body is removed can be held in place with some Vasoline while the valve body is put into place. It will help you with: Basic Wiring Layout Screw Lengths and where they go Which Screws to remove Torque Specs I got my rebuilt valve body from Pacific Coast Transmissions. If you take a an hour or so, read all the transmission threads in the last year, I have commented in most of them with a lot of real world useful information.
The dealer and manufacture notes on this unit mention the solenoids are non-serviceable. There are two different versions of the valve body, the late and early versions. We are just north of Miami, Florida, the U. If you turn the valve body the pins could fall off make it extremely hard to find due to their size. Did any codes pop up? Have the 200 miles been city driving? I finally got the nerve to do the valve body swap. We are a locally owned and operated family business that cares about our customers and our community.
After inspections and repairs you are pretty confident the unit is good and you are still fighting flares, adjust the offending regulating clutch solenoid adjustment plug 1. This will resolve your flare concern if you do not have any other problems. If you are searching for quality parts for your transmission you came to the right place. This transmission is dependent on a wide range of things for proper shift overlap. The problem is there are about 14 wires that connect inside the transmission and a few wires could easily be mixed up, fluid level could be low otherwise there may be an adaptation issue still. But it doesn't every time. This allows us to be within.
