rebuilt my first 4L80E !!!!
Happy Thanks Giving Every one! Sold my last chevy pick up. I had to rebuild my Suburban 4l80e wich was much easier than the last 700r4 . I rebuilt it for under 500 dollars . replaced everything . I purchased an ATSG book and then went to work. i replaced all solenoids everything electrical in valve body. When i finished and installed it ran it and It would not shift right WOULD NOT go past 30mph and was reving at 4000rpms,somehow it felt heavy. I pulled codes and it had none. I built a signal tester because I had no way of knowing if the ECU was sending ground signal to shift solenoids.(no tech 1 for me ).here is the link http://www.atraonline.com/manuals/ge...v/tetdv-c2.htm
everything shifted properly I mean I could see the ecu turning the shift solenoids on according to shift truth table.
After a night of dreading to have to pull tranny off again ,I went to my friends house to ask for his real Chevy service manual. I explained everything to him As far as what the transmission was doing, and he looked at me and asked if my Burban was 4x4. I said yeah ,and right then ,right then I knew what the problem was. LOL , My transfer case select lever was engaged in 4x4 low setting!!!! I felt so relieved and dumb at the same time ,turns out when i hooked up transfer case linkage under the truck ,I had set it in the low setting. when i pulled the tranny out it was in the high 2wd setting so that never even dawned on me.I was overlooking the ovious and preparing to buy a new ecu.Lesson learned, Drives perfect now.

after searching on the web I found this useful link its contains alot of good info. http://www.atraonline.com/manuals/ge.../tetdv-c3i.htm If you scroll to the bottom of page and click table of contents . You will find info on how to pull OBD1 codes for GM and Ford , wiring info as well as other GM and Ford transmissions types. The signal checker I built saved me from having to drain and remove tranny oil pan. Its a cheap and very effective way of checking solenoid shift patterns including TCC engagement. I hope this helps some , trouble shooting their 4l60 or 4l80e.
