4l60e years that interchange

I need an automatic transmission for my 2000 2.2l s10 and haven't been able to find which years will interchange. I've tried searching and found conflicting answers.

Basically, it is the electronics that will give you a problem. For the least amount of trouble, try staying with the same year. The 4L60E saw considerable upgrades in late 97 with small improvements every so often after that.

If you are dead set on using an alternate year, it can be done, but the PCM will need to be re-flashed to match the tranny, as well as some wiring modifications. Some models have a different solenoid setup. Stay away from that 96, it is junk. Use a late 97 or newer.

The 1998 up 4L60E transmissions used a Graphite lock-up converter and the lock-upp mechanism NEVER fully locks it is controlled slippage usually about 60 to 100rpm's min.

The 1996-1997 used a carbon lock-up that is designed to slip then lock.

IMO I would just get the right transmission for the truck.

If you do try the swap be aware of the converter differences and get the right one for the year truck you are installing the transmission in. The pan on the 1998 up is deeper and holds more fluid definitely re-use that.
