Some 1982-1993 vehicles equipped with a HYDRA-MATIC 4L60 transmission may have a buzzing noise coming from the transmission when the vehicle is at idle. The buzzing noise may be noticed more when the vehicle is in reverse at idle.
The buzzing noise may be a result of pressure regulator valve oscillating due to oll pressure instability at lower idle RPM.
A new pressure regulator valve (III. 218) has been made which will improve the oil pressure stability at lower RPM.
