Damnit The problem is it will not go into anyhting higher than second gear. and sometimes it does not want to go, it takes a little while for it to grab and go forward from a start. Does anyone know how much a rebuild on a 4T60-E costs? Any help would be great.

That was fast. You called me only a few minutes ago! We'll get the scantool on the car tomorrow, but in the meantime, that rebuild cost would be greatly appreciated. 180k + on the trans right now, 4T60E. Anybody'* input would be appreciated. We'll check shift solonoids tomorrow, as well as TC slip.

Somebody else help me help the poor bastard!

Depends on the shop. Somewhere between 800-1600 US. Make sure you change your converter no matter what gets done. Trust me...it'll help with the BANG factor.

I had mine rebuilt about 2 years ago. I basically gutted the thing on the highway. All I had was reverse and first. It cost around $2,000 to fix it. I had it done at a reputible shop and they did a really good job. A rebuilt tranny replacement was about $200 more than the rebuild to mine. Mine was pretty much worse case scenario for them going bad though.

SSEi95: Did they say why that happened to your tranny? I cant afford for anything to happen to mine right now.

I stripped out just about every gear and ring inside it, and what wasn't stripped was damaged somehow. It all depends on what went inside it. Talking to the guy at the shop (before they opened it up) they said it could be from a few undred up to what I ended up paying, just depends on what is messed up. All I can say is that this kind of problem won't just go away. The sooner you get it looked a tthe better. Metal shavings from one bad part can quickly move around inside the tranny and start to take more stuff out with it.

I know a guy who specializes in FWD trannys and rebuilds them with heavy duty parts for roughly $900. If interested, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Problem is you would have to ship the tranny all the way here to the Land of Lincoln.

Ok, with JSeabert'*, he can't get any higher than 2nd gear. That'* looking like a solonoid. Anyone ever replace one of them? Budget constraints dictate that this may be a driveway job. A shift solonoid would be alot cheaper than a total rebuild.

Yes budget restraints suck. I would much rather have this be a driveway job

We just got back from a scantool run. Torque converter is shot. It was slipping so bad we almost didn't make it over a bridge. Coming back over the river, we had to cool it down to make it. 3rd gear is also shot, temp related as well. Tranny is noisy in park and neutral at idle.

Bye bye tranny.
