TransGo Shift Kit (help)

TransGo Shift Kit (help)

Postby gtiguy [OP] » May 17th 2010, 8:41pm

Hey guys,

I have some transmission question. Last time I posted some suspension question and I am getting great support, and I thought I post another topic in the transmission area...

When I bought my van I noticed that it had very harsh 1 to 2 shift (around 20 - 25 km/h) plus slight bumps when moving from from stop.. so I did some researches and talked to few people and found that 4l60E transmissions are known to have this issues and they have recommended that I need to buy Shift Kit. So I went on internet "ebay" and got this TransGo Shift kit (my local transmission place would not sell it to me)...


I received the package just today....

In the instruction it says that when I change parts (springs and such) in the transmission servo, it would fix the hard shift....

Well to make long story short... How about the other parts?? just fixing the servo portion would be enough? Just changing servo portion would not cause the other unchanged area (valve body) to malfunction? can I remove the servo parts without removing the transmission? Any tips would be greatly appreciated guys....\

Yes the servo parts are accessed outside of the case. But why not put the whole kit in? Jim

Thanks Astroturf,

I have replaced components in the servo and my van is shifting like butter... At least for now... As per other parts I will work on them later since I did oil change just recently and i need to buy the valve body gasket and all... Appreciate your help.

Hey gtiguy, I seem to remember their being a vid on the web somewhere showing the entire process of installing the shift kit. It took all of about 9 minutes or so. Good Luck and keep us posted, Jim
