My mother has a 2000 model 4x4
the trans does not shift correctly its slow to shift to next gear.She
took it to a trans shop and they said she needs a new one because it has
metal shavings in it.
I say BS because when I used to do fraud investigations that is one we
Am I correct.
You can send me a private e-mail if I am correct so I can tell her she
is going to be scammed?
Or pull the pan off, and look for yourself. While you're at it,
change the filter and look for metal shavings on the filter.
Sometimes all that is needed is a clean filter to fix them. You will
also need another pan gasket which may or may not come with the
filter. Ask the part store what is included. Total cost is about $20
to $30 for the filter and gasket. Then you'll need 6 to 8 quarts of
new fluid. I've also been told that Lucas additive for trannys helps.
I never used it, but I have heard this more than once.
Sounds very likely. Does it have all the gears when it shifts? A common
failure in the 4L60E is the sun shell. Another is the valve body
solenoid and another is the torque converter clutch facing.
All of them will dump metal into the oil.
