How To Rebuild A 4L60E Automatic Transmission




What do you think about this video?

briansmobile1: lol You're awesome!

East24stProductions: good vid. I have a 95 impala LT1 4l60e stock. Is this the same as your rebuild or is mine easier? thanks

Larry Job: cannot get the video

Matthew Payne: 4L60E Bellhousing TP50 Torx Plus 3/8" Square Drive Socket

John Nunya: Funniest CC I've ever seen! "fabricated some old records of the mainland that's an awesome texans in the boxes...." Why not remove the CC?

EdontheBeach: good vid - do you know how one would replace the input shaft seal (nothing else) without taking the trans apart on a 700R4?

kao kwong: so it work after repair or not ? I tried 8 times wasting 3000 dollors don't work

djxfile007: Hi Nick, have a 4L60E from 2003 Yukon SLT 4X4 5.3L, doesn't go into 2nd gear anymore. goes into 1st fine, will rev like a cow & eventually go into 3rd and OD. Transmission guy thought it would be check ball stuck, redid that and same symptoms. Now he wants to rebuild complete transmission. Make any sense to you?

Ronn Miller: I find a several confusing parts to your video. As is the case with most do it yourself video's I watch. If you are going to take the time to do a "how to" video, you're normally dealing with folks who have never built one. Therefore you and most others talk about do this and do that as if the person already knows what they are doing, in which case, they wouldn't need your video. So, if you're going to remove a part then you should SHOW EVERY detail, not just leave the camers on the case and tell them to do it, as they don't normailly know what the part is, where it is, or the proper way to remove or replace it or what it looks like. Isn't that the point of doing a video rebuild for those who can do with proper instruction but can not without your video. As with all others who do these, one has to go through 50 to finally find the one who does it complete and correct. I would think, do it complete, or don't do it at all. Not to be mean, just that they don't know what you know, yet you teach as though they already know it. thanks

Tom TheTitan: what can be replaced in the transmission without removing the transmission from the vehicle?

Panamarojo420: What tools are required? Are a must. Whats the least tools I can get away with?

Justin Leeds: Does*

Bradley Cavett: i have a 2001 chevy silverado 4x4 1500 with the 4L60-E and i recently starting having problems with it i have 1st and 2nd and then 3rd still shifts but at high rpms. wont go into 4th would you think its R&R?

Richard Perez: Great how-to video! Very descriptive and informative, I am very mechanically inclined and have watched others rebuild trannys in the past, so I'm gonna pull my 4L60E outta my 04 tahoe and start disassembling it today, I feel much more confident doing it after watching your video, Thanks Nick!

Turco949: I WISH I had a place where I could actually park my truck while I got the tranny off to work on it at my own pace, I'd have loved to get to see the inside of the tranny and rebuild it using superior alternative parts like brass bushings and better quality sun shell, etc.

djxfile007: Thanks for your help.

Justin Leeds: How much fluid dies the 4l60e hold after rebuild ?

Kyle Williamson: I have a 06 silverado first I lost drive then I lost 3rd, so I tried to put new solenoids in it and got the same but if I unplug on of the solenoids I get 3rd back Any ideas??

William Santiago: I have a 2001 GMC savana van with a 4l60e transmission it has no oil pressure, should I replace the pump also when I rebuild the transmission?

william Malone: Nice quick informative video. cool stand, angle iron only? How heavy is transmission?

DidUAskMeFirst: Great video gonna try to rebuild my 4l60e ,one question , any difference from the 95-98 version internally vs. the 98+ ? thanks

drwombat: is the torx improved bit also known as the torx "plus" ? or perhaps the security torx?

Nick Stageberg: Your reverse clutches are probably worn out, which requires a rebuild as I demonstrate in this video.

RYDETRUE: Great Video, this one gave me plenty of confidence to take this project on myself! Thanks again. Subscribed.

Kenneth Wallace: Nick thanks for the vid very helpful. My name is ken and I just bought a chevy express box truck with the same trans. will you call me so I can ask you some more questions my num is 773-939-0636. Thanks.

John Crump: Where do I look to find #17? I am not that good with the computor.

Dnick Nickd: nice job on this video

Nick Stageberg: If you check the description you will see a link to common break/fixes, looks like you might be lucky! 11. No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter: ShiftA solenoid failed Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans or PCM. Needs diagnostic testing.

Nick Stageberg: Thanks. This definitely isn't the sort of task you want to take on unless you really feel confident in doing it. You can save a bundle pulling the transmission yourself and taking it to a shop for the bench work though!

burtonkidd: what would be some cheaper ways to get these bolts drilled out and removed? I told the mechanic to try and do it through the inspection cover to cut down on labor but he wont do it. Thanks

Mrwintr: I am having trouble understanding why you didn't clean the outrside of that case coompletely dirt free before taking it apart....??? I have done a couple in my day and the very first lesson is to clean everything spotless since one speck of dirt in that valve body will result in a tranny that doesn't function properly....I can't even keep watching this since you didn't do the very first step properly.

Nick Stageberg: Awesome, good luck!

sam mike: I have a TH350 transmission hooked onto a 350, it works fine till it warms up, it stops shifting into third, and starts slipping around 60 km/h, know the problem?

Nick Stageberg: Thanks!

Nick Stageberg: I demonstrate how to remove the servo in the video, you can tap it if you think it would help, I don't believe I did though.

Jon card: I have no reverse in a 98 blazer and it shifts wrong. rebuild or can i just replace the sun shell without taking apart the valve body?

Nick Stageberg: Yeah sometimes google doesn't quite get it right ;) I should go through and program all the captions but it is a pain.

Nick Stageberg: Ah if that is the case then it may be a fracutred sunshell. I would say pretty much no matter what you are looking at a rebuild.

Nexus2Eden: Ah! Maybe you can help me. I have a 2001 Mitsh. Eclipse GT, well kept, that just rolled about 108K. Tectronic Auto on a V6. (PS, not a real auto guy - but engineer. So, fairly brave.) Anyway, just cruisin' along the other day - transmission just cuts out.No warning, no sound, just disengaged. Coasted into a driveway and she'll park, but all other gears are neutral. Shop wants $3K to install a used one, I think it might be something simple. What's your thoughts, very impressed by your knowledge.

Nick Stageberg: You can check the video description for a common break-fix guide. This seems to be your issue: 1. Slow, slipping or no reverse: “lo-reverse” clutches are worn out, fluid leak in the reverse apply circuit, or broken sunshell. It is possible to remedy a fluid problem by removing the checkball from its cage in the case in the rear of the transmission may help (must remove valve body), or adding a high-viscosity additive or other seal restorer product. May also have worn boost valve

Simon G: thanks, it does say MD8 on the case if that helps? and the truck is a 4x4

Nick Stageberg: I don't recall what kit I used and it likely is no longer sold as this was quite some time ago. Anything that includes all the steels, clutches seals, and 2-4 band should be good.

ZIV Music: awesome video...I have a 2001 Chevy Express that clutch 3 and 4 are out. Wish i had the confidence to take on the project myself. great video

Nick Stageberg: I just got a decent looking one from ebay and it worked fine.

moofushu: How hard was it to rebuild your first transmission you ever rebuilt? And how long did you study it before attempting it? Most mechanics work on engines and other aspects of the car, but tend to avoid the transmission.

Nick Stageberg: You can do it!

IHMAWTD: OMG! the captions youtube generated for this video are HILARIOUS!

herbsgotaZX: I would check the servo assembly and the band because the band applies 2nd and 4th gear and the servo assembly applies the band. start with a pressure test to know how much psi it has then. listen for noise like howling that can come from the pump.

spykeeable: We have the same transmission. All gears work except (Drive). 1st, 2nd and 3rd and reverse gears are strong. Just drive doesnt work. revs out. Any idea what it is or maybe bad Torque converter. Please let me know what you think. awesome video. Thanks

Greg Hedger: Or you replace the clutch packs. Still have to rebuild like in this video - or hire someone for thousands of dollars. Transmissions are a bear...
