To replace the transmission vacuum modulator, you need to jack up the front passengers side of the car and support it on a jack stand. Before starting, apply the park brake fully.You will need a rag, an ice cream pail and a 1/4 inch drive rachet, with universal and 12 inches of extensions and a 10 mm socket to remove the modulator hold down clamp bolt which is slightly above the modulator valve.

Remove the Vacuum hose, remove the 10 mm bolt,catch the clamp, place drain pan(ice cream pail) under the modulator to catch tranny fluid if it drips. Wiggle the old leaking unit out of the bore and remove the small diameter shaft from the old unit.Insert the shaft into the new unit and carefully guide the new unit into the bore, wiggling it in all the way. Grab the hold down clamp in your hand, and place it in its position to hold down the modulator, this clamp goes one way and rests on the flange of the modulator to hold it in firmly. Install and tighten the bolt to approximately 15 foot pounds of torque, install the vacuum hose after blowing it out from the top, remove it from the vacuum tree by the brake booster(drivers side)and blow all the tranny fluid out, and if the hose is rubbery from being saturated in fluid, replace the top part which is about a foot long. Road test the vehicle, and if you have an adjustable unit, adjust the shift points to where you would like them by turning the Allen screw clockwise or counterclockwise. Good Luck.And don't forget to check the tranny fluid level!

To change the transmission modulator valve in a 97 Pontiac Bonneville you will first need to lift the vehicle off the ground. Then, remove the vacuum hose and the defective valve. You can then replace with new, and replace the hose.

Typically, you can find the transmission modulator valve near the rear of the transmission. Its function is to control and regulate pressure.

The vacuum modulator is on the front of the transmission. The modulator is a round valve and should have a steel line running from the top of the engine(next to the throttle body) down to the valve.

Your transmission is most likely a 4T60E. If so, it has no modulator valve. This transmission is electronically controlled from the ECM. Line pressure, which is what the old modulator valve controlled, is now controlled by an internal pcm solenoid.
