I saw in a previous thread that you had permanently fixed the valve
body problem in a 4L60E. Can you elaborate what kind of vehicle, cost
and how you found the shop to do it? I have a 2000 Silverado 1500 z71
with 65k, fluid/filter changed every 15k, I never tow and have gone
through 2 valve bodies already under warranty. I believe the dealer
throws a new valve body it there that has the same problems.
I'm near Phila PA and I went to a transmission shop recommended by a trusted
local mechanic. Trans shops in general scare me - too many yahoos and not
As I recall it was about $500 - which several people in this NG said was kind of
As I understand it, the process involves boring out a cylinder in the valve body
and sleeving it with something made of more robust material so it doesn't wear
I'm way past the mileage where a straight-up replacement should have failed, so
I guess it worked.
Thanks for the replies. I am deathly afraid of trans shops and need to
try to find one that can do the work. Thanks for the info and at least
I feel a bit better armed to go ask the right questions.
