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.
4L60E Transmission - Valve Body Installation
I have a complete rebuild of one o this units, but I think is a little
vauge since I explain to refer to the teardown video to do the "Reverse of
Removal" which is not always plausible. So here I make this video to
supplement on the assembly video and the teardown as well.

GM 4L80-E Transmission Rebuild - Transmission Repair
Here is a full rebuild video of a GM 4L80-E Transmission. We see the parts
that took for a successful repair. Complete overhaul kit with clutches and
steels and molded pistons. All bushings as well.
There's some items that I personally would've add to the parts list but
since this is for a Transmission Shop down the road this is what I was
Items I would add are:
Actuator Feed limit Valve, Transgo.
TCC Regulator Valve Kit from Sonnax.
1-2 & 3-4 Shift Valve Springs from Sonnax.
TCC PWM Solenoid.
And Shift Solenoids if needed.
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.

4L60-E Transmission Pump RE-Assembly - Transmission Repair
This is a late model 4L60-E pump. If you notice that the TCC apply valve
and the pressure regulator valve spring and Boost valve position has changed. It was to
accommodate the input speed sensor we see in the later units.
The early model had double springs on the slide and also on the TCC apply
valve. Castings were changed but the assembly stayed the same.
Bushings need to be replaced as always, alignment is done with the same
tool, with the exception that it doesn't take a pump O ring.

The Basic Parts of an Automatic Transmission (Part 1)
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This is part one of my front wheel drive (FWD) automatic transmission
dissection video. In this video I cover the operation of clutches, bands,
accumulators, clutch drums, the oil pump, the valve body, valves, check
balls, seals and 'o' rings, as well as the construction and function of
many of the internal hard parts of an automatic transmission. To be honest
a rear wheel drive transmission isn't much different as many of the basic
components are the same. I guess what I'm saying is that you could use the
information in this video to have a basic understanding of a rear wheel
drive automatic transmission also. It is just a basic overview of the main
components. I don't get into theory and operation so much. Just the
general operation and identification of the parts. I may make more videos
on this topic based on the comments I get so feel free to ask questions and
perhaps I'll answer them in a future video on this topic. There will also
be a separate video on the parts and operation of the torque converter as
well. When that is posted I'll post links below to that video.
