Specific Issues with Chevy Transmissions
4L60E Transmissions: With these transmissions, there are several points of failure:
- The sun shell splines, as these can strip off
- The hub containing the splines breaking off, causing you to lose 2nd, 4th, and reverse gears.
- Another common problem is the 3/4 clutches and 2/4 bands get burned up.
All Chevrolet 4L60E Transmissions get a new hardened sun shell with every rebuild, and we use high energy lined clutches and bands to ensure a long life from these components. These are just a few of the many upgrades we do on every Chevrolet transmission that comes through our shop. We want to make sure that our customers are able to enjoy their vehicles for many more miles to come.
With over 25 years experience our Master Transmission Builder has the knowledge and expertise to get your Chevrolet back on the road. We are so confident in our transmission rebuilding that we give every transmission that comes through our shop a 12-month, 12,000 mile warranty FREE.
Do I Need to Rebuild or Repair my Chevrolet Transmission?
When our skilled mechanics look at your transmission, we’ll be able to diagnose the issue–a vital step toward fixing the car right the first time. We’ll give you a fair estimate, providing our diagnosis and recommendations. Our mechanics will work with you to determine whether a repair or complete rebuild is the smartest way to progress. Depending on the age of the vehicle, and any wear and tear, a transmission rebuild might end up saving you money!
