Transmission Repair - 4L60E Transmission 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 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.
Transmission Repair - AW55-51SN / RE5F22A Transmission Solenoid Repair PART 1
Here I have a valve body of a Nissan Maxima with trouble code P0780 Shift.
It has hard upshifts and downshifts. Would neutralize on a 4-2 kickdown
with a hard bang when hot. Has hard engagements on reverse and foreward
with double bump. Now you'll se the installation of a correction kit to
resolve this issue. It's a Transgo Shift kit that you can purchase from
your local transmission parts supplier. This is part 1, which is the most
important. But also watch part 2, since thats the valve body teardown and
assembly with the new parts from the kit. You will also need valve body
gaskets so you need to purchase seperatly and a pan gasket.
Transmission Repair - 6L80-E transmission introduction. Bilingual, English/Spanish
This is a tear-down of a 6L90-E transmission of a 2009 Chevy Avalanche.
What I explain here is what I have seen so far with these
transmissions.Besides what you see here is is also very important that you
perform a Fast Relearn Adaptation. Otherwise you will have unpleasant
shifting and drive-ability issues. The part number for the piston is
Transmission Repair - Transmission Solenoid Testing (Ohms Law)
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...

Part 3 of the rebuild process. We install the shift improver and finally
get this beast running.
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
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.

Comments have been helpful to many. Feel free to hit the "Like" Button for
me pleez. It makes this vid easier for others to find and feel free to
support my advertisers if they can help you. Thanx :-) I should add that
much of this would be directly applicable to the earlier 700R4 and some
aspects of the turbo 350 as well.
I suppose I should mention what led up to the rebuilding of this unit. I
entered a burnout contest with the car, Not so smart of a thing to do.
Anyway something changed then. And a while later on a trip to Tacoma, she
gave out on I-5. I nursed her another 300 or so miles back home, slipping
badly. Fortunately I didn't have to climb any hills.
