Re: 4l60e no third gear

it shifts 1 2 good no slipping when it shifts to thirds the engines revs up really high and if u do it just right when u let off the acel it will shift into 4.

Re: 4l60e no third gear

3/4 clutches are worn out, and the forward clutches are worn out.

they hold okay, but they have another holding element that helps them along, till you get to 3rd gear.


in first, you have forward, and low
in second, you have band and forward
in third you have forward and 3/4
in 4th, you have to throttle lift to get i, but you get the 3/4 clutches, and the band. you have so little torque requirement in 4th, that the band can hold enough to overcome worn 3/4's

you with me?

Re: 4l60e no third gear

yea for the most part i am. i bought this blazer begining of the summer and when i got it the engine was bad. and i knew it and i got a good deal on it. i was concerned with the trans cause the fluid had a burnt smell to it. not a bad one thou. i didnt have no way to test the trans cause the engine didnt run. i just got finished up today and went to take it for a test drive and thats when i found that i had trans problems

Re: 4l60e no third gear

the trans being bad cause the owner to over rev the eng and blow it? just an idea. You need a rebuild

Re: 4l60e no third gear

that is possible. the blazer has had a hard life. the frame was packed full of mine mud. whoever had it before i got worked at the mines and i imagine it seen its fair share of hard days.
