700R4 Transmission Valve Body - Transmission Repair - Transgo Kit Install
This is a video of a THM-700-R4 Transmission. It is very common that after
you get done with one of this units, it will not want to upshift into 4th
gear. My repair kit of choice for this unit is a Transgo kit as you see
here. There are different types and brands of valve body kits on the market
and they all work very well. If you notice, this is not a high performance
kit, it is designed to take care of some of the factory flaws and normal
ware that you may encounter on the bores and springs.
Transmission repair is a vey fast paced line of work and the use of this
kits is very helpful at times since it takes the guess work out of the ones
that decide to give you some trouble. Saving you time and getting it out
the door quickly to work on the next one.

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.

Transgo Shift Kit Installation 45RFE/545RFE-Part 1
After coming up empty handed after looking for clear instructions on how to
install a shift kit in this transmission, I decided this would be the
perfect opportunity to make this video. This is the Trans-Go 45rfe-HD2 kit
and it works on the 45rfe,545rfe, and 68rfe. These transmissions are found
in many different vehicles such as the Dodge Ram,Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge
Durango, and Dodge Dakota. These transmissions are used behind the 4.7l
V8, 5.7l hemi, and the 6.7l Cummins. I am installing this kit in a 2002
Dodge Dakota. This video may also goes through the steps to replace the
solenoid pack in these transmissions which is the most common problem if
you get transmission codes.
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
