Has anyone done this? If so, when should it be done?
Does this exist on our transmissions?
Auto trans band adjustment?
Even with an older trans, you still have bands and shift solenoids & clutch packs.
Bands are used as brakes, to stop that drum from spinning when needed. When
they slip, you get a sloppy shift. If you don't adjust them, the bands will wear
faster because of the slip. I have a 2003 Silverado, and it has ONE band in it.
My VW has no bands, and my '07 Charger had no bands.
Chrysler went to no the bands or sprags a long time ago, and many have followed
suit. The brakes are now in the drum with the clutches. Clutches have a K#
designation, and brakes have a B# designation. Bands are bands...
The 05-09 has the 5R55S, the diagram shows it has three bands;
Two part# 25s on the diagram, and 26,27, and 28 is the adjusters. Those two are the
OD and Intermediate Brake/Band.
Part#85, band, is not adjustable, low/reverse.
3 clutch packs...
