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.
My start at being my own transmission mechanic, hasn't gone well. I tried
to give a little more life to my old transmission, by giving it bigger
serveros, to put more pressure on the burnt clutches. I screwed that up,
it was very difficult to get the servo in, wile the transmission was in the
van. I have now "sanded out" the damage I caused in the servo bore, and
put the original servo back in. The new servo will just be in the new
I will now ride out the transmission in the van, until I lose third and
fourth, next spring or summer I am hoping, or maybe when I get my garage
built. (I now have spousal permission to build a real garage w heat :-)).
I got an 84 transmission, that also needs a rebuild, for $100. The newest
transmission I can use is 92, and that's 20 years old. I figured I would
rebuild whatever I get. There is too many scammers out there that want
$1000 for their "rebuilt" transmission. Most of them haven't even cleaned
the thing, what is to say its "rebuilt", and its not rebuilt the way I want
So this is a video of the servo screw up and the start of the rebuild of my
84 transmission. Parts are on there way. Although the 85-92 trans was
better than 84 this one will be built for towing, and a future diesel
conversion, better than anything 20 years old.
Precursor and explanation of a 700-R4 valve body bug
Got the mess home after it was removed from the car, here is a bit of the
story on a valve body that was lazy on a 1964 Chevy Impala SS. No, it is
not a Power Glide, but, rather, a 700-R4 overdrive automatic retrofitted to

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.
