700r4 or 4l60 and how can I tell the differents

Ok, guys.
I have a 93 Z28. The trans went out on me. I know that I need the #'s on the trans to find out what it is. My car is a buddies house. I have found a few trans but all of them have a 4 wire plug to where mine has a 5 wire plug. Both trannies look the same except the plug. I thought it might be the 4L60. Does the 4L60 tranny have a kick down cable. And is there a way to wire the 5 plug wire to a 4 plug tranny. I will try to get the #'s tomorrow. My trans does have a kick down cable.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Cool

the 1993 unit is a one year deal.

I would suggest keeping the correct trranny there with the round connector.

a 4L60 is a different name for a 700r4. the electrics are different in the 93.

the wires can be modiified to function. a bit difficult to explain ove the net

If you are doing the swap yourself pull the original and have it rebuilt. Much less hassle then buying something that "might" work and, if it's used to begin with, might "not" work after the swap... I know it costs more up front but I learned a long time ago it's money well spent. Especially if you end up doing it more then once...

Thanks

for the info. Transmission shops here want 1800 to rebuild it. If I take just the tranny. they won't do it. It has to be in the car. I was going to sell the car and buy a vette.

thanks

1993 4L60E Transmission

On Ebay .com under Automobile parts/transmissions . Look and you will see Camaro 4L60E trans remanufactured from Phoenix transmission . Dyno tested for $649. plus $130 shipping. Best deal yet. Just get somebody to install it.

========== the problem is the camaro in this thread is a 1993 and it has a round 5 pin case connector.

It is NOT a 4L60E tranny. The 4L60E connector has many more pins than 5 and it is on the passenger side.


This is on the drivers side of the tranny. It is a one year deal here in the USA.

1993 Vettes had this setup too.

Hey Crosley,

You stated, previously in this thread that '4L60E' is just an other name for 700R4. That may be a little bit misleading. the 4L60E is an 'electronic' version of the 700R4... i.e. the 4L60E has no throttle valve cable since that function is done with wires.

1993 4l60 Phoenix transmission.

Hey Crosley .My Mistake (1993 4L60 not 4L60E) My point was to let " Tooez: Know that Phoenix Transmission will sell him the proper model for About $800 total which is alot better than the local price he got. Paul Poirier

==========36scsc,

I would suggest you re-read my post.

I never used the term 4L60E in the first response to TOOEz post.
