GM 4L60-E Transmission Re-Assembly (Rebuild) - Transmission Repair

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.

What rebuild kit should I buy for my 4L60E for my 1999 GMC Yukon 4x4?

Автор James Peffley ( назад)
Hey Hiram. When I rebuild my 99 4l60e in my Silverado, I want a good firm
shift. Along with the sk4l60e shift improver kit in the orange box, do you
recommend a corvette servo or just tweek the force motor by 1/4 turn?
Thanks again for sharing all your knowledge.

I got a blazer with its tranny rebuilt. I have a delay in reverse
engagement and sometimes theres a delay when its shifting from gear 1 to 2
like the rpm goes higher than usual and then finally it sets to gear 2.
Will this get worse and cause more problems as time goes by?

Is that case sitting in front of you the 4l60e case? that sure does look

Best video I've seen on tranny rebuild. Very detail and concise.

Автор HDBadBoy From The Rgv ( назад)
Dude, this is the best detail video I've seen on tranny rebuild. I bought a
91 Chevy for 1300.00 has the 700R4 square pan. You'd start the truck and
put in drive it'd move about 15-20ft then slip same for reverse.

I dropped the cover and replaced the transmission filter and oil and
dropped .5 quart of K&W slip treatment.

Tranny now shifts from 1-2, but not into 3rd or OD. Shift between 1-2 is a
bit delayed but not extreme, shifts from 1-2 at 20-30 MPH.

Thinking I'm gonna replace governor first and see if that corrects the

Hiram, Thanks for all the videos, very informative! I'm in a mess, first my
98 Continental trans went south and 2days later mt 95 Tahoe trans quit and
makes a loud grinding noise in reverse. I'm renting my wife a car so she
can get to work! I thought I would do the easy one first and I'm starting
on the Tahoe 4x4. I use to spin a wrench for Ford, but never on
transmissions. I was wondering if there is one brand of rebuild kits you
use and do the kits come with the parts bagged and marked as to where they
go by groups? I'm retired and in my 60's I'm not looking forward to all
this work, but I don't have the kind of money for two trans rebuilds!
Thanks for all you do!

the trans rebuilt last year, upgraded parts, 3500 stall,, the problem I'm
having now is the other day I was standing by my while it was idling when I
heard a whine come from the trans,, first thought was that the stall had
went bad so I put the stock converter back in,, now I have no over drive
and I still hear the whine going down the highway. Any suggestions? All

+Hiram Gutierrez Don't know if you will read this but ill appreciate any
feedback from you. I have Have a 1999 Silverado problem was it wouldn't
change any gears. After opening clutches were burnt sun shell, band were
bad n I can't remember what else Luis did to it. Anyways now it changes
like it should be just that at first it kinda struggles to go, after 15mph
it runs normal. It doesn't have any codes. Works perfect in manual n it
doesn't hesitates in reverse only it drive. It didnt have this problem
before he rebuild it Any clues as to what my bro in law missed?

Thank you Hiram! Throughout this past week I have been watching and
learning from your video! Excellent filming job on rebuild and teardown!
Only critique I have is the bearing for the subshell. In your video it is
not covered, but in teardown its location was obvious. Thank you so much
for the great video! I saved 800 bucks with your video! One last question,
however. In my 4l60e (07kcd) it lost a cooler line and burned up 3rd gear,
severely. Should I replace the torque converter in my unit? All other
frictions besides 3rd looked great. Thoughts?

Great video on the 4L60E rebuild. I have a question with a problem I'm
having with my 2004 S-10 4x4. A month ago the overdrive quit working after
238,000 miles on the original build. With that many miles a complete
rebuild should be done. Took it a Chevy dealer who installed (supposed to
be) a factory remanufactured transmission. Everything new. The problem I'm
having is the overdrive will slip or quit working all together after 20
miles of driving at interstate speeds. The computer senses this and applies
max pressure causing the 1-2 shift to be hard. (the truck jerks forward). I
have taken it back to the dealer 2 times now to get it fixed. A month later
it is still not fixed. When the transmission is cold it seems to work fine
and all shifts are firm. After it gets hot from driving for 20 miles,
sometimes less, it still shifts through all gears fine except the overdrive
quits or slips and then computer will increase the pressure. After I have
shut the engine off for a minute all is well for a few miles and the
problem starts all over again.
What is the problem?
Thanks for any advice.

Автор Frank Maggio ( назад)
OK, looking at the "stator support" or the pump, the top brass bushing has
a tight clearance. I believe what you are spinnng is the pump assembly on
the on the input housing shaft.
Any input would help, Thx.

Автор Frank Maggio ( назад)
Hiram. I am at the point of seating the teflon rings. I can not spin the
"stator support" to roll on the bearing like you can do. This is seen at

My question is an attempt to avoid the time and cost of a full trans
rebuild. And by the way, before the original trans fluid drop pan change
back at 205,000 miles, trans and torque converter was smooth and the fluid
was red and not burnt.

Автор drew bailey ( назад)
I am amazed at how good you are at this work. I would like to ask you a
question only if you are ok with taking the time to answer. I have 1994
Z71 silverado (GM 4L60-E). A drop pan trans fluid was performed at 205,000
miles with no known prior trans work done before that. 2,000 miles later,
I first noticed torque converter shuddering and since then I have noticed
it twice total. All gears are shifting well other than the shuddering once
in a while, but the trans fluid is now dark and smells burnt. I put in one
tube of "torque converter shudder fix" today. My question is whether to
keep the same burnt trans fluid in the system or to perform another drop
pan trans fluid change?

use to rebuild them but it has been some time for him and we ran into a
problem everything went together good but we don't have 4th gear this is a
96 Chevy Tahoe 2wd we have a good 1 2 and 3 shift it feels like it wants to
go to forth but then it backs out and goes back to 3rd and the PCM is
commanding the 4th shit we were reading and it said if you put a shift kit
that it feels you to put 3 springs in the I think the 3 2 accumulator with
we did and people are saying if you do that it can keep you from having
forth that we should go back and go down to one just wondering if you ran
into this problem see if you can help me out were going to tear apart the
valve body on Saturday to see if it fixes it thanks for your help

Help! I need help!
I have a lil' test and have no notes to study form. I was lucky to get the
chance to take the test again later so I photographed the whole test. These
are the questions (the test is in Spanish, but I made my best to translate
1.- What kind of clutches are used by an automatic transmission? (I think
it's hydraulic)
2.- How many clutches are there in a 3-gear automatic transmission?
3.- How many in one that has overdrive?
4.- What stops the movement of the discs and has two neoprene seals?
5.- What makes the applying piston return to its resting position when
6.- What's the name of the space that applying piston is inside of?
7.- When pressure is released, what lets the oil out of the clutch?
8.- What clutch gets the torsion movement of the converter turbine?
9.- What clutch makes for 2nd and 4rd gear?
10.- What clutch is responsible for the overdrive?
11.- What clutches make for 3rd gear?
12.- What clutch has multiple application chambers inside of it?
13.- What clutch does not use a band and it’s guided into the outer “shell”
of the transmission
14.- What’s the concave disc that works like the return springs?
15.- What’s the most common failure for the neoprene seals?
16.- What kind of neoprene seal is the most used?
17.- How many kinds of neoprene seals are there?
18.- How many kinds of snap-rings are there?
19.- What are vulcanized snap-rings made of?
20.- What converts hydraulic pressure into mechanic force?
21.- What’s the name of those rings that stop the drums in the transmission?
22.- All bands have to be adjusted, right?
23.- What stops the front clutch to make 2nd and 4rd gear?
24.- What kind of band is used for the passive clutch in reverse gear?
25.- What spins to one side freely but can’t spin on the other?
26.- What allows the different speed combinations to be possible?
27.- How many types of planetary gears are there?
28.- What’s the most common failure for planetary gears?
29.- What transmits the torsion into the cardan joint bar?
30.- In an electronic transmission, what makes the function of a
speedometer? (VSS, right?)
31.- What sends pressure into the valves of the speed-lock?
32.- What tells the valve-box about the speed of the transmission by
hydraulic pressure?
33.- What’s the name of the thing that blocks the output when Parking?
34.- What prevents oil from spilling out of the extension of the
transmission? (another neoprene seal, right?)
35.- What happens when a valve in the speed-lock gets stuck?
36.- What force moves the valves of the speed-lock?
37.- What kind of speed-lock is used in an electronic transmission?
38.- What happens when the VSS fails? (erratic speed-readings and gears
behavior, right?)

Hello Hiram -
A very well superb video, I enjoyed watching from start to finish, you
did a good step by step rebuild of the transmission, good job .
I have a problem and hope you have time to answer me back, I have a 2003
Ford Windstar, having to be parked and idling there was a slight smell of
something burning, a puff of smoke came from the front of the grill, opened
the hood and saw nothing, driving it shifts through all the gears ok but
later the next day the OD light lit up on the dash board soon after having
to stop at a red light the van would not go forward nor reverse - have you
any idea to what is wrong .

hello there before I put another transmission in here is the deal. I have a
2003 4x4 Tahoe. bought the truck transmission went out lost 3 and 4th gear.
replaced with a trans out of an 06 yukon denali had no problems until last
Friday. it was snowing good and slick out had truck in 4 hi. went to back
up and the front wheels sliped and then caught traction horrrable breaking
noise and no reverse drove truck home didn't have half mile to go.
transmission whined like a pump straining. got out to see what happened
next day and still whining and now wont shift out of first unles you let
out of the gas. still whining bad. don't know if in fact a gear broke or
possible valve body issue . have not dropped the pan yet till get it up to
work. transfer case still seems to work as 4 wheel drive works but don't
knowif transfer case has anything to do with reverse I can find much
testing on all data to determine possible symptom. any knowlage would be
