57 Hydraulic gear selection control components

(Three speed and reverse transaxle automatic transmission)

An explanation of how the hydraulic control system is able to receive pressure signals which correspond to vehicle speed, engine load and the driver's requirements, and how this information produces the correct up or down gear shift through the action of the control system's various plunger (spool) valves will now be considered by initially explaining the function of each component making up the control system.

9 Main pressure regulating valve

10 Valve for first and reverse gear brake

11 Converter pressure valve

12 Soft engagement valve

13 2-3 shift valve

14 2-3 governor plug

15 Valve for direct and reverse clutch

16 3-2 control valve

17 3-2 kickdown valve

18 Governor valve

19 Forward clutch piston

20 Oil pump

21 Converter check valve

22 Second gear band servo

23 Accumulator
