4l60e trans rebuild

Its not really a hot rod question more of a general car one.. Well i got a 99' s10 with a 2.2l and a 4l60e trans.. The trans went bad. When i put it into drive it goes 1-2- then drops off. I assume the 3-4 clutches are fried. I took the pan off and found a decent chunk of metal so i know its fried. Anyways i was going to get the parts for it but i haven't been super sure on all the stuff. For the converter i was wondering if all the converters for those tran's will work with any engine? I'm more familiar with ford. I know most of those do not fit on everything. Also for the rebuild parts. Are those pretty much all the same? So if i buy a 4l60e rebuild kit off ebay will it work or do i need a year specific/engine specific rebuild kit? Also for the solenoids on the trasmissions... do those regularly go bad or is that just a rare sometimes thing? I would appreciate any help.

Over the years, I've built 350's, 200's, 400's, glides, 727's, and 700R4's/4L60(E) whatever you want to call it. If you have no experience with transmissions, just buying a 'kit' will leave you, most likely, with a somewhat disassembled trans. The 700 is not a bust your cherry trans. There are things that go wrong with them, reasons they go wrong, and there are things that if they haven't gone wrong, probably will. Hard parts, seals, etc. you won't even know are there. Do you have an ATSG boook for this unit? I'm not doubting your ability or experience with this, or any other trans, but I'd hate to see you go through bad experience. Most shops or builders around me are going to get about 5-7 hundred to throw it on the bench. A master kit can be had for about $150, no hard parts. All said and done you're going to be looking at about 1000-1200, if you're lucky.

I agree, the 700 is not a beginner tranny if you want to learn go get a th400 or a c-6 to learn the principles they are pretty straight forward trannies and will allow you to learn without getting part confused. I would say on your unit to take it to a shop there are so many things that can cause a 3-4 burnup and some of them have nothing to do with 3-4. sometimes simple things like the #7 checkball which most beginners wouldnt even know its was there can leak and cause a 3-4 burn up just using this as an example. However should you decide to fix it you can always ask and I will answer

Rebuilding depends on what you're looking to get out of it. You could always rebuild back to stock specs, but why not go further. Performabuilt can help guide you in the right direction, as he/they have built performance transmissions for many satisfied customers. Some of the most common/popular upgrades are hi-energy clutches, Beast sunshell, Transgo HD2, upgraded servos (Sonnax), upgraded input sprag, and 5-pinion planetary. You could go farther with billet shafts & new input drum(s) w/ 2-4 band (red). Of course, seal & gasket replacement is recommended. That's just to name a few. Vac-mods are also popular.

It's all dependent on what you want out of the trans.
