ATSG CONFIRMED FIX
6T40 - 6 speed - 2011 CHEVROLET Cruze - 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine
Complaint: Flares / neutrals on the 1-2 shift or shifts 1 to 3. May store code P2714.
Cause: Broken filter plate.
Correction: Replace the filter plate.
Part numbers related to the repair: N/A
Year Make and Model of the Vehicle: 2011 CHEVROLET Cruze with 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine
Shop Name: PAT BARRETT TRANSMISSION INC.
Additional Notes: Vehicle came in with a complaint of slipping. Engagements were good, but on a quick initial road test it would flare up/momentarily neutral when the 1-2 shift was commanded. Then it might drop in and hold 2nd gear or shift to 3rd gear and then seem okay. Rich figured it was an internal 2-6 clutch problem, so the unit was pulled and disassembled. The unit appeared to be in good condition internally and no problem was found when the 2-6 clutch and piston were inspected.
It was decided to open the valve body for closer inspection and replace the 2-6 solenoid (PCS-4) or TECHM if the valve body proved good. It was then the damaged filter plate was noticed. The filter plate was replaced, and the problem was resolved.
