    4L60E transmission no drive in 4th gear

    I've got a 4L60E transmission behind a 355 stroker (original VT SS 5.0L) that was running fine, but now I have an issue where I can't get any drive in 4th gear. I can accelerate through 1st, 2nd and 3rd to 100km/h, as soon as i back off, my revs drop back to idle as if the box is neutralising...

    So basically I need to repair/replace the gearbox in our VT HSV and I was looking for advice & recommendations as to where/who to carry out the work. Any help will be kindly appreciated as there are so many dodgy repairers out there.

    Hi all, I am not clear as to how the Traction Control actually works on a car, Vx Commodore specifically. Like does it have anything at all to do with the transmissions, or is it solely the PCM, wheel sensors and ABS ? As I need to replace the trans on the Vx, and have a perfectly good Vt one...

    VR 4l60e line pressure adjustment

    Hey all, another question that has probably been answered before, anyone know where the line pressure torx screw is on the vr auto? Only place I can see is the rear passenger side of the auto underneath the speed sensor plug? And will fluid pour out of there if I take it out? I know this...

    6l80e vs 4l80e vs 4l60e

    I haven't been able to find a thread on this, and some info websites can be a bit cryptic. Want to build a stronger transmission for the wagon (vz exec), as I want to eventually boost it. I've looked at 3 transmissions so far, the 6l80e, the 4l80e and the 4l60e. From what I can decipher, the...
