4L60E 1st and Reverse only

I have a 1998 chevy that has only first and reverse. Before I lost the other gears it would not shift until you took your foot off the gas. Can anyone give me a idea what the problem may be and if there is any fix other than replaceing it? Thanks in advance.


this is a silvarado with about 165k miles on it.

Any codes? Is your speedometer still working? What condition is the fluid in?

Thanks for the reply

have not checked the codes. spedomater does work and the fluid looks fine but does have a burnt smell to it. I drove it agian today and it shifted out of 1st to nothing at all. I have come to the hard reality that it is shot ! LOL Well now it is time to find someone to rebuild it for me of invest in rebuilding myself. I have three of these trannies and two of them are not working so I may try my hand at rebuilding. Thanks for the input.

I do have a 1990 chevy stepside I am fixing up and I will be back for help on it I am very sure !!

While rebuilding a 4L60E yourself is commendable, remember that it takes quite a few expensive tools and alot of knowledge. I've been building them since '93 and I've seen many 4L60E "specialists" get them wrong. If you decide to tackle it, I'll help you out however I can. I've got them in several 9 second cars. I can point you in the direction of what parts you'll need,
what you'll want to update, and what modifications to make.
