Default Transmission Troubles.

I just got my transmission rebuilt not to long ago due to slipping and not shifting. It works fine except mornings around 7 am central and sometimes during the day. It only slips about one time. I brought it back to the transmission technician and he said they couldnt find anything wrong with it. Any suggestions?

a Th-700 R4 right?

Our Camaro did that as well, what we found was a bolt missing from the shift linkage; you might want to make sure your shift linkage cable is in the right position (how to find out, I know not) and make sure it is securely tightened.

I don't trust mechanics much, only use em when I have to. You should look at the tranny yourself, make sure all teh nuts and bolts are tight... you might wanna pick up a repair manual and check outr hte FAQ or Q&A sections; do some research, it may be a fairly common problem.

ASG told me they would be willing to build/rebuilt your transaxle type and they are very confident in there ability. So am I. I am also willing to look into new transaxles that are cheaper. Ill ask and see what is said about a deal on new transaxles.

"Ty, I am confident that we could do the same things to the 440-T4 (4T60) that we have done to the 4T60-e and make it that much stronger. Keep in mind that it is an inferior unit, and hydraulically controlled at that, so it could never be as strong. But we could build the best one that could be built and do the same things with the ratios.

-Adam"

If you are interested contact me and I will have Adam set you up.

I am going to try and get Adam to sell the parts for the 4t60-e HD kit as parts so ití* cheaper. That way you can buy the kit then save to have your transaxle rebuilt with the parts. Ill see what happens.
