    4l80e

    I told you a few posts up how it's still shifting. It's in limp mode. Speed input is but 1 part of the shifting equation. Basic trans controls like those found on 6.5's use output shaft rpm's, engine rpm's, and throttle input for warm engine shifts. There are multipliers and limiters that...

    Pressure Washers

    I have the harbor freight electric unit. I added a 25 foot extension hose to it because the 15 foot hose that came with it was a huge downfall to it. It works great and is super handy for washing the cars, boat, and small jobs, but it is not up to tasks like cleaning my wooden deck or vinyl...

    Pressure Washers

    I think thats the same one I was looking at. I'm looking to get a smaller, easier to start one(my back has gotten worse and that one should start easier than a 13hp Honda, I currently need surgery). I was going to get the one from harbor freight, but they jacked the price up to $400 on there...

    4l80e

    Without hooking up a TPS to it there is no way it is shifting correctly. It's probably shifting hard because it's in limp mode and running max line pressure and doing limp based shifts. If it's in limp mode I would not drive it. Early 4l80e's are bad about breaking hard parts from high line...

    Pressure Washers

    I've got an old unit from sam's club that is 3.5 gpm and 4k psi. Rarely do you need all it can offer. I can personally attest that at 4k psi with a 15 degree nozzle you can filet your toe if it hits it. Took my shoes off because they were soaked and starting putting everything up, seen a spot I...

    I need air condition help

    Idling under those conditions the suction line should only be cool at the compressor. I do not insulate the suction line from the accumulator to the compressor. Insulating the accumulator is a good thing to keep heat out of the system, but insulating the suction line can increase the chance of...

    I need air condition help

    Since you have the scroll compressor, it is not going yo perform well at idle. Feel the low side line coming out of the evap, out of the accumulator, and at the suction side of the compressor. You can feel the lines and tell where there is liquid, gas, or nothing. If after a few minutes of...

    2004 Yukon XL 2500 LBZ

    You'll like the pro pride hitch, I have one, and it is a life saver towing a large travel trailer. I went from white knuckle driving running 65-70 in a cross breeze every time a semi went past to 1 hand driving running 75 in all conditions. Just make sure all the hardware stays tight. I ended up...

    4l80 transmission

    I normally use dex/merc fluid in all saginaw pumps. I wouldn't use it in the newer electric systems though. I had been running royal purple max ez power steering fluid in mine. It is rated to stupid high temps(can't remember what it was right now) and is of a thicker viscosity designed...

    I need air condition help

    That would be incorrect. As of 1-1-18 you must posses an epa 608 license to buy r134 in a cylinder larger than 2lbs for personal use. You can pick them up on ebay as it is legal to buy a 30lb cylinder without a license if you're going to resell it(explain this BS to me), so a few ebay sellers...

    4l80 transmission

    I NEVER said worn bushings, I said fluid leaking past bushings because they were uncoated. At the same time GM switched to dex vi, they also started using coatings on the bushings to tighten tolerances and reduce inherent fluid bypass.

    4l80 transmission

    Except for there fluid engineer that went to work for Allison admitted GM knew dex vi was NOT reverse compatible with older rubber/neoprene seals hence why he wrote the bulletin that Allison released regarding the S/N breakpoints regarding the switch to viton seals. It's quite obvious you've...

    It should, that looks like the one I have in my 99.

    A/C questions

    GPD makes a good product, they're all I installed. AC Delco R4's are rebadged four seasons units. The scroll compressor is nice for a single air unit, but it's not big enough for a dual air. Replace the condenser with a modern parallel flow design, I would replace the evap for the front as it is...

    4l80 transmission

    Not when Allison used the same neoprene seals up until 06 that GM used. The S/N breakpoint was when Allison switched over to viton seals so GM's dex vi wouldn't eat the seals.

    What auto trans would be in a 1992 G30 Van 6.2?

    For a 6.2 in a van I believe it will be a 700r4/4l60. The 4l80e typically only came in 8 lug trucks, the 454ss, and 6.5 turbos, but being a G30, it is 8 lug, so it may be a 4l80e. You'll have to look at the pan to see. Not many 6.2's got a 4l80e though.

    4l80 transmission

    They're patent ran out, thats why. But GM DOES still make Dex 3 fluid. There manual trans/transfer case fluid is dexron 3 to a T. GM will not warranty a manual trans or transfer case if dex vi gets put into one that called for dex 3. And dex 6 is far from a "proven" fluid. Tell that to all the...

    4l80 transmission

    According to GM it is, but others have done testing showing the older seals are not compatible, and will break down and leak. And I for one do not like the idea of running a thinner fluid. Stick to dex/merc fluid for anything that doesn't have viton seals in it.

    How to make a late model 1996 4l80e work with a 1992 ecm and engine?

    91-93 4x4's have an output reluctor in them, 94+ 4x4's do not. Starting in 94 GM changed and used the vehicle speed sensor in the transfer case, and added in an extra pin to the transfer case switch to tell it when it was in 4 low to correct the shift points. You could possibly get an...

    CKO TECH 2

    So far I'm as happy as can be with it. I did have to pull it apart and redo some cold solder joints on the screen backlight connections, but other than that it's been rock solid. The truck adaptor is for working on semi's and such, mine works fine on the 95 side for abs and airbag diag, and...
