What PSI are transmission cooler lines?
The cooler pressure is not published anywhere that I can find but most automatic transmission’s have about 4 to 10 PSI. You have to keep in mind the cooler pressure is low because the oil is flowing to lubricate the gears and there is not much resistance in the lines.
What is normal transmission pressure?
The pressure should read 40 to 70 psi.
Does transmission cooler lines have pressure?
Its NOT only pressure you have to worry about, its also compatibility with the trans fluid. NOT aware of the pressures being any higher than other transmissions, so if you use “Transmission Cooler Hose” you should be fine.
What is the pressure in an automatic transmission cooler?
the pressure in these lines can reach the high side of 200 psi during extreme use (such as high-rpm racing). Also, the tech sheets for coolers from B&M and others say they are pressure tested to 200 psi.
Can I use rubber hose for transmission cooling lines?
You can use rubber hose, but make sure it’s transmission cooler line rated. The pressure is quite low (12-15 psi). Double clamp it or use FI type clamps instead of the worm-drive style.
What causes low line pressure in a transmission?
Line pressure is normally effected by throttle position and the gear range. … Pressure that are lower than specifications are usually caused by leaking seals or a worn oil pump. Higher than normal pressures are usually caused by a faulty pressure regulator.
How do I increase transmission pressure?
It can breath new life into old transmissions with sagging pressure regulator springs, or provide extra clutch and band apply pressure in hard-working units. Raising line pressure is typically done by using a stronger pressure regulator spring, installing a larger boost valve or doing both.
Do transmissions have pressure?
Electronic transmissions use the vehicle speed sensor signal for vehicle speed. Governor pressure causes a transmission to upshift, and throttle pressure causes it to downshift. Governor pressure works on one end of the valve, and a spring assisted by throttle pressure works on the other.
Where are transmission cooler lines?
Your transmission cooling lines, often just called the transmission lines, are the lines that connect your transmission to the radiator in your car. The hot fluid cools off in the radiator and then heads back to the transmission.
What does increasing transmission line pressure do?
Line pressure is just one of the components that contribute to the torque capacity of the transmission. First, it’s not the speed of the application of a clutch but the holding strength once the clutch is applied that contributes to strength. In this respect higher line pressure will give higher torque capacity.
