Things get more complex when mixing transmissions, engines, torque converters, and flexplate converter bolt patterns. Both shallow and deep pans installed in vehicles might be painted or unpainted. This is responsible for sending a signal to the electronic control unit when the throttle valve is closed or wide open. Shift Cable Mounting Bracket You may have to modify your shift cable mounting bracket to use this pan. It weighs 133 pounds without transmission fluid.
The 1999 and 2000 4. It also allowed for more than one set of shift points to be programmed into the transmission, which allowed for tow haul mode in the trucks and high performance modes for muscle cars. You can change the fluid yourself and save a lot of money in the process. The mating surface could have been polished or machined. This is sometimes used by law enforcement officials to catch thieves in the act and recover them easily, but if this happens in your own car, then something might be wrong with the electrical system, likely a short.
If the problem continues, trace the wiring for the short and fix the problem there at the source. These might signify that the bore is experiencing significant wear and tear. Installations These are examples from a variety of vehicles that have installed this pan. Install the new filter by simply pushing it back up into place. Using a torque wrench and a tightening in a star like pattern, torque the pan bolts to 98 — 108 lb-ft. Generally used in straight and V6 and small block engines. This story will look at the evolution of the 4L60E, which is essentially a digitally controlled 700-R4.
The first number of flashes that the light gives before a pause indicates the first digit and the second number of flashes after the pause will be the second digit. Mistakes are easy, especially if you are mixing and matching engines and transmissions. Steel transmission pans when hit hard by road debris will dent. More bolts were added between the upgrade in order to tighten up the grip to the transmission and the engine itself. For the purposes of easy identification, I have broken the 4L60E into 4 distinct eras. For those wanting to swap a 4L60E into an earlier car, you also need to think about speedometers.
The Late 4L60-E transmissions had a three piece case of cast aluminum alloy; bell-housing, main case, and tail-housing. Aluminum is a better conducter of heat, helping to cool down the oil. I had it flushed about 20k miles ago so I will just drain and refill about every other oil change to keep fluid fresh. It is impossible to read with the transmission in the car. Third gear is 1:1, with overdrive again engaged to create Fourth. Our thanks to Scott for sending pictures.
The solenoid is a magnetic device used to operate some unit. Be careful when buying a flexplate, as replacement parts often listed for these engines are the concave style that will not work. It is told exactly when to shift by the computer and it allows for more accurate conditions based shifting. I thought the thicker flange would give me trouble to get it past the bracket, but there was no trouble. To check if this is indeed the case, make sure the engine is off and then check the fluid level and then once more while the engine is running in order to see how the flow is. When this fails, the speedometer will not be able to read any of the speed changes in the car, posing a danger to the driver and those around them.
The pan also cost about three times more. This happens when the shift does not happen until you let off the gear. Although the acronym never changed, the 4L60E received continuous improvements throughout its existence. All information deemed reliable but not guaranteed. Without the torque converter, a stock 4L60e with a shallow pan can hold about 6 quarts of fluid see reference 2. A separate window or tab will open showing a bigger picture.

Filter Supports, Temperature Sending Unit Locations and Drain Hole This transmission pan has cast-in filter supports as shown in image. Click on image to view larger. These eras are easy to identify from the outside of the transmission. In this case, it is best to avoid running the engine until the transmission is refilled so the pumps are not being damaged. Truck engines such as the 4.
If your luck runs out and you need to buy one of our replacement , call GotTransmissions. If you want to protect the transmission it can be as simple as changing to a 100%. Here, the key is to look for any scuff marks. A paper tag may also be present on the driver side top of the bell. The 4L60 is the latter model 700R4 transmission, only the name changed, if you think you may have a 700R4 look here to identify it.
