Does a stock 1992 caprice 305 V8 5.0 require modifications to upgrade to a 700R4 or police transmission?

The stock 5L Caprice comes with a 700r4 transmission so no upgrade would be needed. VBdenny **funny, cuz mine doesnt. 4L60 and i think its pretty WEAK! Does anyone who knows what they're talking about know about this problem? i need a strong-BAD-ASS Auto-tranny that wont let me down- for $$CHEAP$$ inexpensive, im not rich! that's why I drive a 92 Caprice Station Wagon!!! "What parts/components/Transmission do i need to UPgrade my tranny?" Thanks Ken D. The 4L60 is the newer name for the 700R4. It's the same transmission. The 700R4/4L60/4L60E are all weak transmissions, especially the 4th gear clutchpack. If you upgrade transmissions, you should purchase a large transmission cooler. This will lengthen the life of the tranny.

How do you adjust tv cable on 96 GMC sierra with 5.7 liter engine?

There isn't a tv cable on the 96. GM replaced the 700R4 / 4L60 with the 4L60E transmission in 1993. They are electronic soleniod controlled transmissions thus eliminating the need for a tv cable.

Will the 4L60E transmission fit in a 1992 blazer?

It'll fit, but it won't work - the 4L60E is an electronically controlled transmission, whereas the 4L60 (itself simply a rebadged 700R4) is a mechanically controlled transmission. 1992 was the last year mechanical transmissions were used in these vehicles.

What yeartransmissions will fit in a1992 fullsise Chevy blazer 350?

You need to find out what transmission model you have - either it's a 4L60 (most likely) or a 4L80. 1992 was the last year they used mechanical transmissions - anything newer than 1992 will have the electronically controlled 4L60E. You would want either a 700R4 transmission from 1984 - 1989 or a 4L60 (essentially the same transmission) from 1990 - 1992.

What year of transmissions will fit into a 1996 Blazer?

It uses a 4L60E transmission, which has been in service from 1993 to present. Theoretically, you could put a mechanical transmission, such as a 4L60, 700R4, or 200R4 into it, but you would need to have the ECM reflashed to remove the parameters which interface with the computer in the electronic 4L60E transmission.

What is a 700r4?

an automatic transmission for Chevy cars or trucks. it's a four speed with overdrive, so technically a five speed transmission. It's only a five speed if you count reverse. The 700r4 is a THREE-SPEED with overdrive. four forward gears. (aka 4L60) NOT the same as a 4L60E. The 4L60 is a Vacuum modulated gearbox. The 4l60E is ELECTRONICALLY shifted...

Does a 1993 Chevy van have a 4l60E transmission?

If it has Regular Production option(RPO) code M30 listed on the SPID(in the glovebox) Yes, your vehicle has a 4L60-E Transmission, if it has a MD8 code, then your vehicle has a 700R4, or the non electronic version of the 4L60. This is all assuming the factory transmission is still installed. All S-10's, Corvettes, Camaros, and Full Size Pick Ups had 4L60e transmissions as standard equipment so I would have to assume yes.

What transmission is in a 1994 Impala?

4L60E which is the electronically controlled version of the 4L60, which is descended from the 200R4/700R4, etc. I am pretty sure 1994 is the first year for the 4L60E in the Caprice.

Can you put a 1991 Chevy 4x4 automatic transmission in a 1992 Chevy 4x4?

yes you can Most gm parts will enter change as long as the motor's match and the body style's are close The 91 (assuming it is an AUTOMATIC transmission) has a 700R4 + the 92 has a 4L60 trans ( most of the time ) the 4L60 is computer controlled + the truck will have a code if you put a 700R4 + you will need to get a kick down cable bracket + adapter for the throttle body.

Can you put a 1993 Chevy 700r4 transmission in a 1989 Chevy?

The correct answer is a resounding MAYBE. It depends on what vehicle the 1993 is. Camaro, Caprice, corvette, firebird and yukons all got the 700r4 in 1993. Astros, Blazers, Suburbans, c&k 1500, and G series (vans) all got the 700r4 (aka 4L60) until 1992. in 1993 the 4l60e and 4L80e were introduced. They WILL NOT WORK IN A TRUCK BUILT BEFORE 1993. The 700r4 (4L60) is a vacuum shifted gearbox, the 4L60E & 4L80E are ELECTRONICALLY shifted (hence the "E"). The primitive "computer" used up until 1992 WILL NOT support the Electronic shift.

Which 4160e transmissions are interchangable?

With what? The 4L60 came in many versions with different internal configurations and electronics. They don't all interchange by a long shot.
