Debris stuck in the #11 check ball, or a sticking pintle in the 2-3shift solenoid.Inspection Procedure

1. Using the exploded view (Illus. A), inspect each bore for freedom of valve(s) movementand evidence of debris. Pay particular attention to those valves related to the customer’sconcern. IF VALVE BODY CLEANING IS NOT REQUIRED, DO NOT DISASSEMBLE BORESUNLESS IT IS NECESSARY TO VERIFY MOVEMENT OF VALVES.2. Verify movement of the valves in their normal installed position. Valves may becomerestricted during removal or installation. This is normal due to small tolerances betweenthe valves and bores.3. If a valve is restricted and cannot be corrected by cleaning the valve and bore, thenreplace the valve body. Describe the restricted valve on the repair order.Disassembly/Reassembly1. If a valve is restricted by a metal burr from machining that bore, remove the valve andburr, then inspect movement in the valve’s normal position. If no other debris orrestrictions are found, then reassemble the valve body and install in the transmission.2. If the valve body has been contaminated with debris from another transmissioncomponent failure, then disassemble all bores for complete cleaning of all valve bodycomponents. Keeping individual bore parts separated will make reassembly easier. Use thefollowing illustrations for positive identification and location of individual parts.3. Using GM Brake Clean, or equivalent, in a safe and clean environment (clean aluminumpan), clean the valve body and dry it with compressed air. Use appropriate eye protection.4. Clean individual valve body components with GM Brake Clean, or equivalent. Coat eachvalve with clean ATF and reassemble in each bore. Check each valve for free movementduring assembly of each bore.Important: Position the valve body as shown in the following illustrations for positiveidentification and location of individual parts.

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions thatmay occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have theequipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletinapplies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from theinformation.
