Hey you bloody Devonian what are you driving that old thing about in your part of the worlde ?.

I might have some rebuild info from books & training I had many yurs ago in me native Gloucestershire.

Sit tight 'n I'll have a dig about in the janitor boiler house where I keep this stuff!

Well according to the manual I found we have.
Modulating pressure in kp/cm2 min 0,65 to 3,8 max

Working pressure :- 1st gear 6,25 min to 13,15 max
2nd to 4th gears :- 3,1 to 6,4

Gov pressures
prop speed 680 gov pressure 0,75 plus or minus 0.1
1400 1,6 +- 0,2
2050 2,3
3100 3,3
4100 4,6
Hope that helps
Cheers Dennis

Thumbs up Re: 1998 Automatic transmission modulator pressure

Sorry for slow reply , thats brilliant , thanks so much .
I checked the modulator pressure it was way to high so I think the gearbox must have been slipping between gear changes causing early death of bands.
Fingers crossed for next big trip , although now this Chinese virus is around Europe I don't think we will be traveling for a while.
all the best Richard

You can use Dexron V1/Mercon V or my favorite fill Castrol Transmax for those oldies by goodies application although way back when, I did use Dexron3-H.(now hard to find)
