This video is of a CD4E transaxle. This transmission is used in a variety of applications including Ford Escapes, Mercury Mariner ,Mazda Tributes, and a variety of passenger cars. The CD4E transmission is used because it is a compact design that fits many front wheel drive applications. The CD4E transmission has five sets of clutches, two sprags and one band. Many of the problems we see here at Meenan Transmission that occur with the CD4E transmissions are control related. This transmission has a control solenoid pack that contains multiple solenoids that control shift functions, pressure rise, and torque converter lock up functions. This solenoid pack can malfunction and this can cause some drivability concerns. It can also cause a malfunction indicator light to come on or the over drive light to blink. The other more common control related problem is with the pressure regulator section of the valve body. This occurs over time and can lead to a condition where line pressure can go beyond normal and acceptable levels. This over pressure condition can cause internal parts failure. This will likely require removal of the transmission and disassembly for full evaluation. Some of the parts that are prone for failure the forward/direct clutch drum and the overdrive band. When we rebuild CD4E at Meenan Transmissions we take all steps necessary to ensure that a repeat occurrence of these failures can't take place by performing control system modifications that address the route cause of the parts failure. CD4E transmissions after they are rebuilt and modified have proven to be a trouble free reliable transmission and can provide years of trouble free service.

CD4E Transmission Teardown Inspection - Transmission Repair
On this video we see how to disassemble one of this units. I also explain
the main issues with this unit as I go along with the tear-down. There's an
assembly video coming soon.
You will find this unit on the following vehicles;
Transmission Solenoid Testing (Ohms Law) - Transmission Repair
Transmission Solenoid Testing. Here I use Ohms Law for testing. I believe
that this is the only way to test your solenoids on or off the vehicle.
Remember that the solenoids fail under LOAD! So just Ohm testing on its own
is not really accurate. Other tests can be done, but if you just own a
VoltOhmeter, that should be all you would need to perform your testing.
Voltage drop testing is also accurate but you also need to put your
component under load.
Ohms Law, Learn it, make it your own.
Voltage Divided by Ohms equals Amps...
4L60E Transmission Teardown Inspection - Transmission Repair
On this video we can see the disassembly of a 2006 4L60E transmission. The
most common failure on these units is 3rd. clutch burn up, the reaction sun
shell and the 2-4 band. Failure on these transmissions is not necessary the
way it is treated, rather is these common or pattern failures. Valve body
ware is also another issue and can be corrected installing a correction kit
of your choice.

This is part 1 of this CD4E Transmission Rebuild. I'm trying to make them
shorter so I won't have any more issues with the uploads. Go to part 2 when
you finish with this video clip. Thanks.
GM 4L60-E Transmission Re-Assembly (Rebuild) - Transmission Repair
On this video we go through the re assembly of a 4L60E Transmission. I
tried to make this video shorter for you so I skipped the bushing
installation and installing the bolts on the valve body. But you can go to
the teardown video for reference on where each bolt goes, since they're
different sizes. I will make a follow up video on bushing installation.

Honda Transmission Rebuild Video - Transmission Repair
On this video we see what it takes to Rebuild a Honda Transmission, what
parts it takes and what has been working to correct some of the common
failures on these transmissions.
Blue Overheated Torque Converters has been a common issue on these
Transmissions for a long time and we still see this regularly to this day.
Although there are various shift correction kits and special valves out
there, all work really good on correcting the issue with the lack of
converter feed fluid. I like them all. So if a deciding factor is important
to you on which method to use, all I can say is this, They all work.
Keep in mind that there are "other" fixes or items that can be added to the
rebuild, but it is not really necessary if they're not really needed, I'm
not mentioning any but I know some of you will.
With that being said I like to thank you for watching this video and liking
it and sharing it.
Thank you guys for your support.

Debras 2003 Mazda Tribute transmission rebuild
The forward / direct drum broke at the snap ring groove. A common issue
with this trans. There is a valve body update to lower the pressure that is
applied to this snap ring. That failure lead to the rest of the damage in
