    Negative. 4L60E transmission were electronic. I have a 93 T/A and it has a 4L60 no E. I can hold every gear without it shifting on it's own and I actually prefer it.

Actually that's not correct. For 1993, they used a 4L60 (not the 4L60E). In reality, it was a 700R4 just renamed to 4L60. They were not electronically controlled in 1993. It was just a one year deal with those. Switched to the 4L60E in 1994.

What all do I have to add r change in order to put a 4l60e transmission. In place of my 700r4 in my 1991 model ymca seirra 1500 truck


A 4l60e is an electronically controlled transmission, and is just an electronic version of the 700R4. You will have to add a computer to control the 4L60. The 700 is fine for your application, (IMO), so why do you want to change it? If you are having trans issues, I would go back with another 700.

Transmission front seal


yes, a big problem. why in the world would you even try this ??? the torque converter drives the front pump of the transmission. is also holds the proper amount of fluid designed for said transmission. it also has a stall speed built into the fin design. it also... really, why would you even try something like this in a stock application.

Will a 700r4 work in my silverado that has a 4l60e if not what has to be done to make it work


the 4l60e is an electronic 700r4 it will work and shift but you will always have a check engine light on because computer will see no communication with trans mission. there is no way of overcoming this. I would recommend finding the correct transmission to install might cost a little more now but save a lot of aggravation later

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.

Will 1995 4l60e ecu, lockup a 700r4 torque converter?


Your best fix would be to install a hydralic lock-uo kit in the transmission.This would be best done by a good trans shop.The lock-up systems between a 4l60 and a4l60e are quite different and would shorten torgue converter life.Hope this helps you.

I have a 93 Chevy Suburban 1500 and the Transmission won't shift into any gear. I have an 1983 Chevy Suburban Transmission that is still good. Can I use the 83 Transmission in my 93 Suburban?


Not without a little adapting. The 1993 has a 4l60e which is electronically controlled and has shift solenoids. If the 83 is an overdrive it is a 700r4 which is the same trans but not electronic. If you put it in the speedo wont work and you will need to install a T.V. cable so the transmission will shift. The 93 won't go forward or backwards?

Electric transmission


Hi. I have a '93 Chevy Suburban that is on the 3rd transmission. What you probably have is the earlier 700R4 transmission. What you should have is the 4L60E. I have done ALOT of research on these transmissions, and what I've found out is this: the 4L60E is essentially the same as the 700R4, with the exception that the 4L60E is completely controlled by the vehicle's computer. The 700R4 uses a more antiquated valve body with a TV (throttle valve) cable. In theory, you could use the 700R4 if you connect the TV cable and properly adjust it. If it's a 4X4, your speed sensor is in the transfer case, so that wouldn't be an issue. The 4L60E used in '93 and '94 will only work in those model year vehicles, because of the type of shift solenoids used. The newer units used pulse width modulation solenoids, as opposed to the older on/off solenoids. I have run my truck with the transmission unplugged and the engine still runs fine. The major problem with using the earlier 700R4as opposed to the correct 4L60E, would be emissions compliance. If you want to discuss this further, email me at big.bad.bones@hotmail.com
