P0796 SATURN Description

The Clutch Pressure Control (PC) solenoid 3 is part of the control solenoid valve assembly which has no serviceable components. PC solenoid 3 regulates transmission fluid pressure to the R1/4-5-6 regulator valve which controls pressure to the reverse and low clutch and the 4-5-6 clutch. The Transmission Control Module (TCM) calculates gear ratio based on the RPM signals from the automatic transmission input speed sensor (ISS) and the output speed sensor (OSS). The TCM compares the expected transmission gear ratio to the calculated gear ratio for each commanded gear.
