Caution:Do not over-tighten the bolts. Over-tightening the bolts willdistort the valve bores. Begin tightening from the center of thevalve body tighten the bolts in a outward direction.

Inspect the ensure all of the valve body bolts are in thecorrect location. Each bolt number refers to a specific size, asindicated in the following list:59-M6 x 1.0 x 35.0 (Qty:-2)62-M6 x 1.0 x 47.5 (Qty:-12)120-M6 x 1.0 x 54.4 (Qty:-3)Tighten the bolts from the center of the valve body workingyour way out in a spiral pattern to the outside edge. Tighten thebolts to8–14-Y(71–124-lb-in).

Snap the wiring harness in place on the valve body bolts.Ensure the harness loom tab is located under the transmission fluidpressure (TFP) switch.Install the wiring connectors to the electricalcomponents-(1–6) as indicated in the followinglist:The manual shift detent lever with shaft position switchassemblyThe 1–2 shift solenoidThe 2–3 shift solenoidThe pressure control solenoid (PCS)The TCC PWM solenoidThe input speed sensor (ISS)Install the transmission oil pan and filter. Refer toAutomatic Transmission Fluid and Filter Replacement.Lower the vehicle.Fill the transmission to the proper level withDEXRON®-VI transmission fluid. Refer toTransmission Fluid Level and Condition Check.

Note:It is recommended that transmission adaptive pressure (TAP)information be reset.

Resetting the TAP values using a scan tool will erase alllearned values in all cells. As a result, the engine control module(ECM), powertrain control module (PCM) or transmission controlmodule (TCM) will need to relearn TAP values. Transmissionperformance may be affected as new TAP values are learned.

Reset the TAP values. Refer toTransmission Adaptive Functions.
