can any rwd 2000 and up 4L60E be swapped?

Postby weather [OP] » January 27th 2017, 4:30pm

I was ready to buy a tranie swap out at LKQ, but they won't warranty it if the 4L60E is from another type of vehicle, like a colorado, canyon or express. I don't get it. Aren't all of these 2000 and up rwd 4L60E'sinterchangable. TLKQ says they are on theHollander computer program and the program doesn't allow just any 2000 up 4L60E. That greatly limits my search for a low miles trannie. I could have gotten a 2012 canyon 4L60E with just 24k mikes on it, but they won't sell it to me with a warranty.

I'm not sure if I would go with a 2012 4l60e in your 2000. I think the electronics/sensors changed alittle after 2007. Obviously try and get one closer to your year, but I think you can go up to 2007 or 08. Also, the front removable bell housings and front output shaft on the newer 4l60es can be slightly different( I can't remember when they changed output shaft lengths, I think in 02 or 03)....just make sure the bell housings are the same height/depth and the end of the front output shafts look the same( there are two different styles, and they are different lengths) the bell housings are interchangeable so you could use your original one still if you want....the front output shafts are also interchangeable but requires taking apart the trans

Other than that, as long as its from a RWD it should fit right in.

Something I noticed on my van, its on its 3rd trans.. factory trans lasted till about 170k miles, first rebuild lasted about 100k, new rebuild has about 20k and I hope it goes till 100k. Just food for thought while your shopping for a trans.
