4l60e automatic transmission problems

Recommended Posts

Hey I have a 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500 extended cab z71 4x4. With a 5.3l vortec motor 4l60e automatic transmission. I bought it recently an the previous owner said the motor an tranny we're freshly rebuilt. But told me the shift solenoids needed to be changed.  For the price an having a little project to do I bought it anyways. I'm no mechanic but willing to learn anything. When I put it in drive sometimes it shifts smooth an occasionally it slams into 2nd gear an revs out won't shift to 3rd. When i manually shift into 1st, an 2nd it's shifts smooth, when I switch to 3rd it to revs out. I have reverse too. plugged machine to it an 2 codes popped up po449 and po506. No transmission code though. ive had enough bad luck so im praying this is a good sign. I've heard speed sensor an possibly shift solenoids. My question is, What's your suggestion to what may be my problem? Thank you for your help in advanced.

Are you sure the machine you hooked it up to could read codes from the TCM (transmission computer)?  The basic ones don't.

no idea.  i would suggest finding someone with/buying a code reader that can at least read tcm codes to perhaps give you some idea on where to start.
