Dodge Journey: Disassembly

NOTE: Cleanliness through entire disassembly and assembly of the valve body cannot be overemphasized. When disassembling, each part should be washed in a suitable solvent, then dried by compressed air. Do not wipe parts with shop towels. All mating surfaces in the valve body are accurately machined; therefore, careful handling of all parts must be exercised to avoid nicks or burrs.

NOTE: If valve body assembly is being reconditioned, the PCM/TCM Quick Learn Procedure must be performed.
