How do you fix a transmission without reverse?

If your manual transmission won’t shift into reverse, try pumping the clutch a few times to build up pressure. If this doesn’t help, turn off the engine and shift through gears, including into reverse. If you are able to engage reverse this way, you know that the clutch needs attention.

What does the band do in a 4L60E?

700R4/4L60E 2-4, High Energy Part# 375100 As all of this takes place, the flex bands allow gear action by forming a link between the transmission axle shaft and the transmission gears.

Which shift solenoid controls reverse?

If you look at the solenoid application chart in Figure 1, you’ll find that only shift solenoid F (SSF) is on in the reverse position. SSF is on the secondary valve body and controls the position of the 4-5 shift valve.

Can a solenoid cause no reverse?

It is not too often that you see a no-reverse concern caused by a bad solenoid or by a valve-body problem that does not affect any forward upshifts. Generally you’ll see this only on valve bodies that have a reverse-inhibit function, such as the 5L40 or JF506. There are always exceptions, though.

Where is the reverse solenoid located?

In most cases, solenoids are located inside of the oil pan, connected to the valve body. Depending on what you drive, the technician may be able to replace just the failed shift solenoid.

What are some problems with 4L60E?

This is also a pretty common issue with the 4L60E. More than likely the reverse input snap ring has sheared or snapped off. It can also be caused by the sun shell breaking. The most common problem is probably going to be the low reverse clutch pack. The booster valve could also be an issue.

What are some common problems with the 4L60E transmission?

Common 4l60e Transmission Problems Below is a partial list of some of the most common 4L60E transmission problems: Slipping, Slow or No Reverse Available Many owners find that the “lo-reverse” clutches are beat up or worn out. There is also a fluid leak located in the reverse apply circuit. Additionally, there is a broken sunshell.

How much does it cost to rebuild a 4L60E transmission?

If you have a shop pull, rebuild, and reinstall the transmission it can cost anywhere from $2000-$4000. How long does a 4l60e transmission last? A 4l60e that has 300k miles from towing between the coasts could be in better shape than one with only 50k miles on it that was stop and go with thousands of shifts per day.
