How To Rebuild A 4L60E Automatic Transmission




What do you think about this video?

Nick Coleman: That's clearly not rebuilding the transmission. That's simply disassembling it and reassembling it.... To properly build that unit it requires more knowledge ,tools n parts. Failed clutches are the end result of line pressure issues or internal leaks which this video address's none of . Good amateur video though

DeeRox9: What a great video & effort. Thank's

beargibson3100: The guy who use to rebuild our transmissions took an output yoke and welded it to a large metal plate to hold the transmission upright.

zihyer: 36 transmission repair shops (and/or employees thereof) disapprove of this video. I, on the other hand, applaud your efforts kind sir.

Dirk Smithson: I'm putting my 4l60e back together, I'm at the front planetary part and everything has been going good, but now I notice when I install the front planetaries it turns only one way and it makes a noise like maybe the bearing in the reverse plate! what are your thoughts! 

Bobby Reese: Nick, Good video. I have a 4L60e in my 2006 chevy 1500 work truck. it started making a slight wining noise that has gotten worse in the last few months. I had replaced both rear seals and bearings on the rear axles and thought it may be the pinion gear going out, which i did not mess with. the noise seems to be coming from the rear of the transmission where the drive shaft goes in. the trans shifts fine, but the wining is getting louder. Is there a bearing wear the drive shaft enters the trans? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Bob 

Noah Klaman: I have a 96 chevy 1500 z71 It was driving fine except I let it sit for a month without driving it. Then when I started her up it sounded like I had a huge exhaust leak except could not find a leak and heard it more so coming from trans pan. Still drove fine shifted fine except the annoying noise. Was driving yesterday morning and light acceleration uphill is stuttered and I lost everything but park. Is their specific rebuild kits you need for different problems or any ideas on the problem? Truck has 199000 miles on it I bought it used 4 months ago. Fluids levels were correct also.

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

Dirk Smithson: After you removed all of the bad components did you wash the case?

Sergio Cervantes: I have a 2002 chevy Tahoe 4x4 LS my transmission has issues going in to 3rd gears, 1st struggles RPM high, 2nd worse RPM very, and 3rd I don't take it that far because I am scared the motor will explode with the RPM going very high. This is the second tranny on this truck. Got it used. Are there any sensors that might not be connected, any advice is helpful....

Terry Johnson: Great video I have a 94 z28 with a 4l60e I think it need a rebuild again it go thought all gears but at wot it slips in 3 like its in neutral I still drive it. I messed with the shifter cable an adjusted if I pull the shifter back an hold it shift normal but if I don't it slips in 3rd and also reverse to neutral is kinda messed up I put it in reverse then the put it in neutral it's still in reverse for like 4 or 3 seconds then it's in neutral could something be out of place in the trans or broken it was rebuilt last year and I just start driving the car and the warranty is out now I was thinking I could try to do it myself what you think what's wrong with it

Dewayne M: best how to video on youtube....period!!

Larry Job: cannot get the video

briansmobile1: lol You're awesome!

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

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

dukes4evr71: Lloyd again I forgot to tell you,, some of the gears jump at full throttle, could that mean the friction plates are bad??? please let me now

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

dukes4evr71: hi my name is Lloyd I have a 1998 gmc siearra v6 1500 sl 4.3,,, I hafto rebuild my tranny and I need a tranny rebuild book, do I need an update book or just a 4l60e rebuild book??? please let me now thanks

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?

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

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

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.

Justin Leeds: Does*

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??

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!

strattuner: i worked for GM-FORD-CHRYSLER FOR 41 years,i can honestly tell you after building trans units in the thousands it all comes down to clean filters and coolers,none of them are hd,after 1979,i have found weakness in most of them,after that date,all overdrives front or rear wheel drive are VALVE BODY SENSITIVE,in other words they need to be cleaned at the 75-80k mileage mark,filters and coolers do nothing for metal dust which circulates in all automatic units,it is inevitable,if you keep clean filters and coolers and clean vale bodies on these units i've seen them go 300k miles as long as the engine main bearings are good when they go the trans goes,by the why your instruction is excellent thx

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

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?

valdo evans- fineartamerica: transmission

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

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?

strattuner: to genesis godinez,when confronted by a unit that constantly and repeatedly fails for no apparent reason,either your trans tech is untrained or you have a defective unit,internal crack,that swells and loses pressure when hot or components that are the same problem,all of this means,replace the unit with a different one,get a completely different unit and start over,common sense,problem solved

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.

NotSoStock: 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!
