The 4L60E transmission is a legend in my mind. Let me qualify that statement. I am 30 plus year veteran transmission shop owner, rebuilder, diagnostician, salesman and general know and do it all. I got involved in transmission work to support a bad habit of breaking them in the ’60’s when I was a wild and crazy teenager.
The 4L60E is a great transmission, but if you have the need for a replacement unit,
Buy Improved Rebuilt 4L60E Transmissions Now at everyday low prices, that are built better than the original unit. As a person who understands transmission theory, the 4l60 models are engineered right, and with a few minor updates during the rebuilding process, a better transmission is prepared.
You know this transmission is used in everything that is of rear wheel drive up to but not including [in most cases] 2500 and up trucks. So your 1500 series truck has a 99 percent chance of using said unit. My 1995 Buick Roadmaster Wagon with the Vortec [cop car] 5.7 liter engine uses a 4l60E. My 1988 GMC 3500 has the father of the 4L60E it, the 700R4.
Simply said, it may be the most popular GM automatic overdrive transmission ever made. For the techie nuts, to turn a 4L60E into a 4l65E, all you need to do is use the 5 opinion low/reverse 4L65E planetary carrier.
The truth and simplicity of the matter is that we use the best clutch plates available, new band and sprag clutches, with several key updated parts. The real kicker, or difference maker is in recycling the valve body. The valve body is the brain of the transmission.
The biggest fault with this transmission is just that simple. Recalibrating the valve body for crisper and cleaner shifts, at the right time, along with a rerouting of the “lock up” [an unnoticeable extra forward speed] circuit oil to eliminate torque converter chatter, which generally occurs at about 50 mph. Which by the way feels like running over a washboard. That may be a familiar feeling to some of you.
Of course, RebuiltTransmissionsForSale.com supplies a top notch rebuilt torque converter with each rebuilt transmission. It’s part of the job. Don’t believe anyone who says to reuse the old one. That is a guarantee of premature failure, assuming the fresh transmission even works. Don’t get fooled. Some companies offer the torque converter separately, that is a blatant rip off.
