If that makes sense!

Thanks. Phil
The TCC in the ZF 6HP series is not an on/off lockup, as previous auto gearboxes. It has the ability to be engaged and released in steps, a gradual function to prevent the abrupt feel of an on/off clutch. The TCC solenoid is controlled by pulse width modulation to regulate oil flow and pressure. So when the engine/gearbox is cold the TCC is neither in controlled (step mode) or engaged (closed).
