The 5R110 TorqShift transmission is one of the most robust transmissions ever offered in a medium duty pickup. It does however have a weakness. The 5R110 transmission is controlled through the use of solenoids to turn on and off gears. A gear is commanded by the computer and a solenoid applies fluid directly to that clutch. In stock power applications the stock solenoid is fine. Outside of that range, the factory piece cannot provide enough fluid to the clutch fast enough to get the clutches together in a short enough time. Long term slipping of the clutch leads to failure. Direct clutch is not only used for 5th gear in the transmission, but it is also used when in reverse as well.
Since the computer can only command the shift, it is up to the hydraulics to get the job done. Our upgrade direct clutch solenoid provides 4 times the amount of fluid to the direct clutch in half the time. What does this mean? A crisp firm shift with a significant reduction of chance of a direct clutch failure. The perfect upgrade for any 03-07 truck.
