Wow! It is funny cause I had over 130,000 mile on my 07 Suburban with that tranny in it and no problem when I traded it in.

My 97 Sierra had dang near 300,000 on it when I traded it in. As far as I know, it still had the factory 4L60E in it, as well as the 5.7L. Both motor and tranny were running silky smooth.

You sure he's got the 4L80E? He's got the 5.7... I thought only the 7.4 and 6.5 diesel came with the 4L80E, until 1999.

Had a '99 Silverado back in the day, I think with this trans...interesting to read #1 on the list...at 60k miles getting up going to work one morning the truck would not engage in reverse. Had to push it out into the street, and popped it into drive just fine and drove it to the dealer. He couldn't get it into reverse either.

The reverse clutches went out, just like the article said. $1700 and 3 days later I had a rebuilt transmission. :roll:

I can add some information if needed but transmission operation is controlled by TPS, MAP/MAF, speed sensor and a couple others but those are the big 3. FYI, speed sensor failure = loss of all gears but 1st and manual 2nd. The problems are not only limited to the transmission itself.
