4L60E Teardown Inspection
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.
How To Rebuild A 4L60E Automatic Transmission
Highlights from my recent rebuild of a 4L60E transmission from my 1999 GMC Sierra 4.3 V6. Feel free to post if you have any questions!
Here is the link I mention in the video with better information about rebuilding the clutch packs, including a couple very good diagrams:
Also here is a link to some common break/fixes that may require a rebuild:

How To Change your Transmission Filter & Fluid!
Did this video for my blog to help people understand that its not that hard to do. If you need to save money then do it yourself. Dont wait until its too late and you need a new transmission.
ZF 8-Speed Automatic Transmission
ZF has developed a new automatic transmission for cars with eight speeds that can achieve more than 6% fuel savings. The priority aim in development, however, was not the maximum number of gears, but minimum consumption.
ZF engineers had set the bar high to produce a new benchmark for automatic car transmissions. The second generation of the ZF 6HP 6-speed transmission, that entered production only in 2006, defines standards that are hard to top: reaction times faster than human perception, direct engine linkage by early-stage torque converter lock-up and intelligent, adaptive control software, that almost reads the driver's intentions from his foot.
But the new transmission is capable of even more - it saves (even more) fuel. It also guarantees ultimate driving enjoyment, as well as the variability needed to be able to use future technologies.
Is this oil pump good?
Trying to found out if my oil pump is good or not. I turning it with my 1/2 impact with min air pressure. THE ENGINE HAS NO BEARING OR RODS. THE BLOCK AND CRANK ARE BAD-CAN"T BE RE-USED. So as everyone can see it's pumping oil. It's pumping faster then I can pour it in. What do you think?
Update-1: Oil Pump is perfect shape. IPSmotorsports said it was bad. Their stupid to be running a shop. They will never work on any of my cars again. The new rebuilt short block only lasted 735miles. They still will not back their own work.
Update-2: Had the oil pump checked out by engineers. They told me that the oil pump was 100% good.
p.s. All the oil is going into a big tub that you can't see in video :)
Engine and Transmission Removal - '95 Suburban - Part 1
Using the Ford backhoe, we removed the engine and trans combo from the Suburban. This truck has about 170,000 miles, and sufferred a driveshaft failure caused by a cracked transmission case. The only fix is to rebuild the transmission into a new case. Since so many parts were going to have to come out, it was decided to remove the engine too so it can be gone over, and freshened up.
Now the project will meet a fork in the road - rebuild the trans, freshen up the motor, and put it back in? Or just build up a carb'ed 572 and make lead sled. :)
