Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

1 Answer

I have an 04 Silverado with the 4L60E. The

I have an 04 Silverado 1500 4wd with the 5.3l engine and 4L60E tranny. The transmission started slipping on my way to work one day. I drove it back home with only 2nd gear, stopping occasionally to prevent it from getting to hot. I got it home, pulled the tranny out, sent it off to be rebuilt. Got it back...put it back in.. Got 17 miles down the road and it started slipping again. Had it towed home this time, pulled it back out..sent it back to the fella...he rebuilt it again. Put it back in, got 25 miles down the road and it did it again. SO, just had it opened back up and rebuilt again, what I would like to know is, are there any special steps I need to do or anything I need to check to prevent me from having to pull this thing back out? Also, my speedometer went haywire about 2 months before the tranny went out. I was told it could have been the contributing factor to the tranny going out. Is that true and could that be the reason that the tranny continues to fail?

    I pulled the tranny because I thought something was still wrong with it...never thought to get it flashed...will do that this time and see if that works. Thanks. As for the other..I will ask the man that rebuilt it if he did what you are saying. Thanks to you too.

I would be interested to know why you kept pulling the tranny. Its possible you lost the prgram in the PCM. You may need a reflash. Where there codes. Or you may have a bad torque converter or trans oil pump.

    I just checked mitchell and theirs a TSB on this issue. The valve assembly may be contaminated in the tranny. You may need to replace it as a whole if you cant find out whats hanging up from de-brie. You need to diesect it and look with a magnifying glass and work everything to be sure there free.

I own a 1998 Chevy Blazer 4wd that is on its 3rd transmission and I'm having the same issue where when shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear it's slipping badly my rpm's rev up to 3500 and I have to take my foot...


this is a known issue with the gm 4L60E transmission. the valve body in transmission causes this. if it is wore, then less fluid is sent to shift selonoids. thus causing torque convertor not to lock up, and this causes slipping. if it slips 2 consecutive trips then the transmission detects this and should turn on check engine light. ( p1870 ). you can see if the tcc solinoid is bad. but if not its usually the valve body in tranny.

04 Silverado no second gear


sounds like the 2/4 band or servo. servo applies the band in second and forth if the bands burnt up or old it wont hold, and if the o rings in the servo are cut or damaged it will not build up enough pressure to apply the band

04 Silverado no second gear


check color and smell of trans fluid, if not bright red and had a pugnant odor then the trans needs to come out and torn down, You can try a fuel filter that can cause a driveability problem

It will work but you will have to modify the crossmember and driveshaft and the computer. The 4l60e is an easy trans to recondition

4l60e tranny swap


No the 4l60e is a electronic transmission you need to find a 700r4 transmission which are very common. Check with your local junk yards and are pretty easy to install. About a full days worth of work for a person with general know how of vehicles.

This is the 3rd tranny - Exact same thing is happening.


You might try to add a transmission cooler. If its getting hot it will eat the transmission easily. time to swap it out and sell the problem to someone else.
