Re: Problems With Your 4L60E?

I have a 2007 silverado 1500 classic with a 5.3L and a 4l60e. I just got my transmission rebuilt a couple of months ago and it shifts fine, but at random intervals will it throw a "TRANSMISSION HOT" message on the message center. I've taken it to multiple shops that have said it was an electrical issue. I replaced every electrical component in the transmission, but it still throws that message. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for that transmission? Or can someone tell me what color the wire is that deals with the high temp sensor that goes to the computer? Tia.

Why do you need wide open throttle? The 4L60E is not meant to last with WOT for very long.

If you need WOT, get a 4L80E for durability.
