GM’s Steady-State Adapts
With a basic understanding of TAPS, the Transmission Adaptive Pressure System, covered in last month’s article, we will now try to tap into the Steady State Adapt System and what its data can tell us. Not all scan tools provide steady-state data, but I’m convinced that this information is a real help in diagnosing problems in the later GM units. Data for the examples I used in these articles was recorded on either my GM Tech2 or my Mastertech. All the units in the examples shown below are 4T65-Es.
