How To Replace Shift Solenoids Chevrolet 4L60E Transmission | Homestead Kids
How To Replace Shift Solenoids Chevrolet 4L60E Transmission | One of the Homestead Kids shows how to replace the A & B shift solenoids in a Chevrolet 4L60E transmission which sometimes fail. The automatic transmission does not shift into 3 & 4 so before we remove the auto trans, we will change the solenoid. If that does not correct the problem, then a transmission rebuild is on order. Remove the transmission pan bolts and drain the old fluid into a suitable container for safe disposal. Once the pan has been removed, remove the old transmission filter and then pull the wire retainer clips from each solenoid and remove the solenoids. Install the new solenoids by pushing them into their respective locations and reinstalling the hair clips to hold them in. Plug the wiring connectors in. Install a new, clean transmission filter. Replace the pan and tighten the bolts properly. Once the pan and gasket have been reinstalled, fill the transmission with the proper amount of fluid. Check the proper level with the engine running and in park. This may or may not correct a shift problem with the 4L60E transmission. The problem could be a 3 - 4 clutch pack burnout. Either way, it is very little more work than changing the fluid and filter in the transmission. If this fails to correct the problem and a rebuild is in order, no real specialized tools are required - mostly just hand tools. Thats good when homesteading as many homesteaders have only basic tools.

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.
