Hi Alan, My name is***** you still need help with this?

Expert:  Dan replied 10 months ago.

If so was there any fine metal, friction, or aluminum materiel in the filter or oil and suction screen?

Expert:  Dan replied 10 months ago.

Most of the time low pressure is a result of a worn pump, converter, or excessive internal leakage.

There is no metal in the oil. Looks fine

The question was, can I adjust the pressure?
Expert:  Dan replied 10 months ago.

Transmission pressures are not adjustable, any shimming of the valve spools to attempt to raise pressure is not going to fix a low transmission pressure problem....Repair and replacement of the worn out pump unless pressure testing reveals other internal problems. So you want to increase pressures. Might I ask why? What are your current pressures?

Low pressure in the transmission

Thanks for the update. What are your pressures reading in each gear position? What are you seeing for lube pressure?
