The General Motors 4L60-E is an automatic shift, four-speed overdrive, longitudinally positioned transmission. It is now considered to be the best rendition of the finest overdrive automatic transmission ever produced. Realistically speaking the lineage of transmissions for sale starting with the T-700 up to the T-4L70-E are probably the most common and successful transmissions in existence.
New Versions Rising
The 4L60E is now concurrently produced along with its strengthened progenitors; the 4L65-E and the 4L70-E. They share most components and improvements together. The 4L65-E was introduced in 2001 as an HD version of the 4L60-E. It has a stronger planetary and a strength-improved output shaft.
4L70-E transmission is a further improvement still, and share most components. However, these versions have strengthened and improved components for the significant power outputs of GM’s impressive line of Gen. III+ engines.
An interesting new feature on all versions of this four-speed automatic include an Input Shaft Speed Sensor, for more advanced transmission and engine control through the ECM. This sensor is located in the front pump assembly. It is to be fully implemented in all versions by 2008. Individuals swapping these parts through and across years should be aware of the compatibility issues that this may present.
