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.
700R4 Torqe Converter Lock Up Wiring
I've learned a lot over the winter rebuilding my Chevy automatic
transmissions. Thanks a bunch to Michelle for letting me take over the
basement all winter and putting up with the musk of burnt tranny fluid. I
feel much better about my automatic Astro van now, knowing I can fix the
transmission, should I burn it out. Before it was like "when's this trans
going to go?" and I would always be on the look out for a new van, or have
a back up truck ready to go. Now I will have a back up automatic
transmission built and ready to install.
I didn't really film the rebuilding, cause honestly I didn't know what I
was doing, and it took about 6 months, hour here, hour there. Next one I
will film, with short cuts, to show what you most likely get with a $800
I did a few mods to the automatic transmission to make it hold up better
towing the 4500lb electrical trailer. Those mods are going to cost me more
work on the install, because I will have to mess about pulling the
governor, and modifying the governor, to get the shift rpms back to where
they were before the higher pressures and bigger valves. I have 2 videos
covering the mods I did here.
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 Not to Remove a Transmission
When all other methods failed....
Note: The transmission did eventually come out. Yes the splines were seized
up from the weight of the transmission dropping down. The reason was I
didn't have a torch to cut the transmission mount that bolts to the
subframe and the bolts holding said mount to the trans were so damn tight
we couldn't break them loose. And if the idiot that owned the car before me
stripped the threads for the subframe bolts so they had to be welded in.
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. :)
