Transmission Repair - GM 4L60-E Transmission Re-Assembly (Rebuild)
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.
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.
Transmission Repair - 4L60-E Pump Assembly Re-Assembly
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.

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.
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 :)
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.

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.

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.
