Control Pressure Check Gauge Installtion
Remove plug at transaxle TV pressure port shown in the Control Pressure Check Gauge Installation image. TV pressure tap is not visible from above. The tap is located beneath the line pressure tap.
Install quick disconnect and a 0-100 psi (0-700 (kPa) gauge, then start vehicle and place gear selector in drive.
TV pressure should be within 0-5 psi (0-12 kPa) at idle. If zero (0) psi is read, verify gauge is functioning by moving throttle to increase engine rpm.
If TV pressure is not within 0-5 psi , repeat adjustment procedure.
If TV pressure is still not 0-5 psi , perform the following procedure:
Disconnect TV cable at transaxle TV lever. Push TV to hard set position. If TV pressure is within 0-5 psi , continue with following procedure. If TV pressure is not within the 0-5 psi range, refer to Diagnosis and Testing.
