Transmission Modulator (Automatic)

Transmission Modulator (Automatic) Operation:

The transmission modulator determines when the transmission should shift. The modulator matches shift points to the engine load by the practical application of engine vacuum. It controls and regulates pressure for smooth operation in automatic transmission. In the absence of the modulator valve (such as a chrysler torque-flite), the transmission will shift from internal pressure.
