    I had this same problem and the bad news is that the overdrive "pack" assembly (as its called) is bad and even worse news is that this assembly is just as expensive to replace as the whole transmission. I replaced my transmission with an aftermarket heavy duty 4L80e and have not had any problems as of yet. Hope this helps

the gas tranny should work. gm was pretty good about keeping the same bolt pattern.

SOURCE: I am wondering which transmissions will fit a 1997

Unless you want to do a lot of work i would find another 4l80E or rebuild yours. 700r4 is not electronic shift and you have no connection for the shift cable. And if you get a electronic 700r4 (4L60E) The plugs are completely different and you would need to change the whole engine harness and ecm.

Yes they will swap out nicely, the years where they made the change is in 1997 and the only difference is the transmission end housing has a different bolt pattern but has the same internal parts. You may also want to swap out the servo's with a corvette servo. The cost is around $45.00 and can be done without dropping the transmission pan, this will make your transmission shift firmer and will have less clutch slip[ between gear shifts. Good luck and hope this information helps.

4L80E trans. Lost passing gear/overdrive suddenly


Bad transmission, that's not a good answer. Bring it to the shop [so we can guess around], not a good answer either.

A good mecahanic will respond with something about the solenoids.

I have repaired the 4L80E on my tow truck, I have to do that almost every year, the last time it ran perfectly but when I push the pedal to the metal, it shifted from 3rd gear to 2nd and stays on 2nd gear until I turn the ignition off and start again.

The transmission was totally rebuilded so the answer "Time to rebuilt the transmission" is not acceptable.

I took it back to the shop and the mechanic replaced both solenoids A and B, that was the only thing that hasnt been replaced before, it was just a guess but works

So, I am not a mechanic but my sugestion is to replace the two speed sensors and solenoids before you take the tranny out of the car and be carefull who are you taking the transmission to because guessing is not always the best course of action

The two speed sensors are easy to replace, the solenoids are inside of the valve body but you may be able to replace them without removing the transmission from the truck

What tranny


Your truck was equipped with a turbo 400. Look at pan and shape to determine trans. Square will be 700R4 , long to the rear will be 4L80E but this trans. requires computer.
