Question about 1997 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

My 97 GMC 2500 4x4 transmission went got a 4l80e from 1995 both 5.7 liter will it work

Ok things I noticed not sure if it will prevent me from using the 95 transmissions in my 97. Cooler lines on my 97 transmission the lower line is in rear of the transmission and on the 95 they are one above the other near bell housing is this ok ? And secondly on my 97 there is one less sensor (interchangeable 1 small bolt) than there is on the 95 so apparently 97 version it was eliminated with plug? So with this being said will it work?

Yes it will bolt up, but the electronic control will be different.

I'm not so sure that the bell housings are the same. I know that the older ones were different. I would recommend calling A GMC dealer and ask someone in there service department your questions and a good dealer should gladly answer your questions.

Will a 1994 chevy 4l80e 4wd swap into a 1995 GMC

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.

Transmission Identification

If it's a 1500 then yes the 4l60E tranny is for you. If it's a 2500-3500 you'll need a 4l80E. The 80's are only used in trucks with a gvw or 7200 and greater.
