Question Asked: does it make sense to do a sleeve and valve replacement in the valve body.
July 19, 2013, 02:46 PM
the reason i ask this i was on here a few days ago and a trans guy was telling somebody with the same problems i am have 1870 code...that loc-up port in the valve body can be fixed to help with a hard shift problem. I have a 1997 4x4 1500 5.7 Chevy truck and i recently made an appt. to get just that done.the trans guy knew exactly what i was talking about, got a price and all good to go.......so i though till i read this...and this is a quote...""The 1870 code usually means bad transmission or valve body, probably better off just replacing transmission."" Now that being said i am really confused now. Can any body shed some light for me, my appt. is on tue.23rd so the sooner the better. Thanks Brad

Problem Reported: p1870 error code
October 22, 2010, 11:40 AM
<p>The transmission may develop a harsh 1-2 shift and/or illumination of the <a id="ce_5700" class="ct_selected tooltip" href="/understanding-the-check-engine-light">Check Engine Light</a> with code P1870 stored. This can be caused by wear of the bore for the TCC isolator and regulator valves in the valve body. This condition does not commonly occur until the transmission reaches normal operating temperature. If the valve body is worn, replacement will be necessary to correct this concern.</p>
