700R4 Filter question

I just picked up a replacement filter for my 700R4 at my local parts store and it looks nothing like what was in the trans. I am curious, are the two compatible or not? The one on the right is the new one, AC Delco part # TF235. The old one has no numbers, just "Made in USA, ATD".

Thanks in advance

Cool

the filter on the left is used in a 200-4r

the correct 4L60 filter is on the right. This fits non electronic 4L60's.


There are 2 different 4L60E filters... early and late designs depending on the depth of the OE tranny pan..

Can you think of any reason they would have used a filter for a 200 4R in a non electronic 4L60? Just for reference, the filter on the left came with the trans. from TCI.

It is popular belief that the 200-4r filter flows more fluid. Different filter element in the 200-4r. A mesh type material. I think TCI uses these on all of their 700's

The 200 filter is a top feeder / pickup, the 700's are bottom feeders. So it is felt the bottom feeders will have less chance of sucking air.

i've never had issues with fluid flow on modern 700 filters.

Early 4L60E filters had some fluid flow issues at high rpm ( 7k or more). We actually cut open the end of the filter cartridge to allow the fluid to get inside easier
