  1. 4L60E Interchangeability

    Fantastic, thanks for letting me know. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hi, I’ve got a 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 4X4 with a blown tranny. I’m going to get a used tranny and swap them myself, and I’ve located a 2006 4L60E out of a 4X4 Avalanche that was rebuilt not long ago. My question is, are the Avalanche and Silverado 4L60Es interchangeable? I know the Avalanche transmissions are built in Mexico rather than Toledo like the Silverado/Tahoe/Suburban transmissions. I’ve already verified that both the transmission in my truck and the donor truck are pre-ISS sensor era and have green connectors. Both trucks are 5.3s as well, so in theory, I don’t see why they shouldn’t be 100% interchangeable. But If I’m wrong, it wouldn’t be the first time. Any input on this matter would be greatly appreciated! Matt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hi, I have a 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 4x4 with the 5.3. It currently has a blown transmission and I am looking at getting a used transmission to replace mine, as I can’t justify rebuilding mine with the price of getting a rebuild. I’ve read on a few online forums that GM added an input shaft speed sensor to the 2006 4L60Es, and that it was phased in sometime around February of 2005. Which would mean that my transmission has an input shaft speed sensor. I’ve read that if your transmission had this input shaft speed sensor, you must replace the transmission with another transmission that also has an input shaft speed sensor or the transmission and TCM will not be compatible. I’ve spoken to a few transmission rebuilders and scrap yards about this issue, and I’ve got mixed answers on it. Some say they’ve never heard of the input shaft speed sensor on the 4L60Es, others say they only apply to the Suburbans and Avalanches, while I’ve also heard that it was phased in sometime in 2007. What I’m looking for is an answer; whether I can use any 4x4 transmission from 2003-2006 or whether I will need a 2006 transmission that definitely has the input shaft speed sensor. Any input on the matter would be greatly appreciated as I’d really like to get my truck on the road again as soon as possible. Thanks, Matt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I recently picked up a 2006 Silverado 1500 and it has some cheap Chinese stereo head unit in it, and it’s absolutely terrible. I’d like to change back to an OEM GM head unit from the same era, the truck has the Bose audio package. I know GM used multiple different head units during the production of the 99-06 GMT800s, including one with a tape deck. Is there a specific head unit I have to use? Or can I use any GM Delphi head unit? I’d ideally like to find one with a tape deck so I can use a tape-aux adapter. My truck has the standard connector and co-axial cable, I know the Tahoe’s/Yukon’s have another connector. Thanks in advance! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
