4t60e failure patterns
I remembered the poll Wilwren started about 4t60e failures and their mileage when they failed. If at all possible, I would like to start another thread that builds on this, but with the cause of failure along with the mileage, if the cause is known. I would also like to have stated what hardparts, if any, needed to be replaced because of the failure.
For example: 1993 4t60e-hd, failed at approx 170k, torn down at approx. 178k. Initial cause of failure likely caused by lack of thrust washer at the 4th gear apply piston. Hard parts damaged were reverse reaction drum, driven sproket support, 2nd clutch drum, 4th clutch hub and shaft.
Welcome, downwardly mobile yuppies, to the dawn of the Age of Nefarious.

2006 Chevy Malibu Maxx LTZ - Custom 2.25" manifold-back exhaust w/FM-80. Probably the only Maxx with this system.
