TCI 6X 6 Speed Automatic Autopsy......
I made a post in the transmission section a few days ago stating I had hurt my TCI 6X.
The car is over at Carl's Transmission in Baytown, (very reputable), and they found that the direct pressure plate in the clutch basket shattered in about 8 pieces. The big question is why?
In this link, part 617 is what shattered.
The sprague running surface on that basket is also scared, so we will replace that, along with the clutch pack.
The technicians opinion is that the Electronic Controle Pressure Solenoid stuck. The piece that broke does not directly transmitt power, it compresses the plates in the clutch basket.
I have talked with TCI. The man I need to talk to is Dennis Cambell, who is out of town at the moment. I am going to send them pictures, and box up the broke parts for their assessment.
Everything else in the unit looks good.
In the mean time, I told them to get the parts and get her back together. The broken pieces are all 4L80E parts, he said it will all be back together by next Wednesday.
I will see what TCI says. The unit is 9 months old, I would not expect a part such as this to fail, causing this type of problem. We will see.
