4L60E 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.
Here we see a 2006 4L80E Transmission being inspected. Verified the customers complaint and was a slipping 2nd at hard acceleration. We confirmed it with the intermediate sprag assembly outer race being pitted and a worn sprag.

Part 1 of 4: Hey, Friend me, Subscribe. Lets hear your comments...
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.

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 rebuild.
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.

4L60E Rebuild Part 1
If you have been keeping up to date on the videos, then you'll know that we welded the overrunning clutches together by doing reverse drops and such. So this video shows you the first part of the disassemble and rebuild process. We used a TCI master rebuild kit from Summit Racing that included the necessary parts, Corvette servo, shift kit, and valve body update kit.
