Remove shift linkage or shifter, Remove drive shaft, remove cross-member and mount, disconnect any electrical wiring and speedo cable if so equipped, Remove all bell housing bolts and slide transmission out. Use a trans jack or if you have to, 2 people can pull it by hand. Just reverse removal steps to reinstall.

what kind of transmisson is this 4t40or 4t60 or 4t65 or 4L60 ..well most general motor solenoids are located on the the transmisson valve body . which means on a rear wheel drive the transmisson pan needs to be remove to gain access to the valve body .

How do you remove the front drive shaft in a 1999 Chevy 1/2 ton 4X4?


Jack up front end, and put on stands. Remove wheel. Remove large nut on end of drive shaft. Remove lower control arm, from wheel hub bearing assm.
Push drive shaft back toward transmission.
Now that drive shaft is free, you must "pop" it out of transmission output.
You can use a pry bar, but be careful not to damage anything.

Looking for transmisson for 1999 4+4 suburban what years will fit


The years will fit is 1998 to present 4l60E for the 1500 suburban. Your transmission on your Suburban is a 4L60E, just make sure it's a 4L60E for the years of 1998 to present. 1997 was the change year and the transmission was sectioned in to a three piece housing where the older 4L60E was a one piece housing and the older housing had a 4 bolt end on the tail housing as to the newer ones have a 5 bolt, the internals are the same through out the years. Good luck and hope this helps.
