VALVE BODY CALIBRATION

VALVE BODY CALIBRATION

Even the most robust automatic transmissions will take gradual damage from use, and that’s not considering damage from
other sources like accidents. For the longest times, diagnosing these issues and repairing transmission issues at the
source of their damage, had been a time consuming and costly affair.

Fortunately, there is a worthwhile solution that makes doing just that far simpler, more effective, less time consuming
and, therefore, far less costly for vehicle owners. This solution, as you may have guessed by now, is valve body calibration.

But what is it? How does it work? And how can you and your vehicle benefit from opting for this specialised service?

WHAT IS VALVE BODY CALIBRATION?

Put simply, valve body calibration describes a method for diagnosing issues or inefficiencies with automatic
transmission
systems electronically. But of course, the actual process is quite a bit more complex than that.

The process makes use of software to measure similarities between unique valves in the system, so that they can be
compared in terms of their overall performance with electronic accuracy.

This also allows mechanics and car owners to identify issues with their transmissions down to individual components in a
very short amount of time; essentially making the process cheaper than through mechanical means.

THE BENEFITS OF AN ELECTRONIC APPROACH

The electronic systems that the valve body uses to control transmission is reliant on cues from several systems in the
vehicle, and they need to be correctly calibrated to ensure optimal efficiency with factors like fuel efficiency,
torque, and overall performance.

While mechanical methods of measuring and calibrating valve bodies have been in use for years, and electronic approach
has transformed the way it is done for the better; both for workshops and for their clients.

Here’s how:

CALIBRATION IN A FRACTION OF THE TIME

The speed at which diagnostics can be completed with an electronic approach to calibrating valve bodies allows the task
to be completed in much less time than would be possible with a mechanical approach.

HEIGHTENED LEVELS OF ACCURACY

Even though the time taken to complete a diagnosis is drastically reduced, that benefit comes at no cost to accuracy. In
fact, mechanical methods tends to have glaring limitations when it comes to accuracy, even though the going is much
slower with them.

Where greater accuracy is a focus, electronic valve body calibrations stand out as the superior option every time.

LOW-COST

The cost of performing calibrations is generally also drastically reduced with the electronic approach, for a couple of
reasons.

Firstly, the equipment needed for mechanical diagnosis is often very costly, something that the customer ends up paying
for down the line. Secondly, the very fact that the process is completed in much less time, also passes on a huge saving
to vehicle owners.
