  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BraaapAllDay says:

    So when someone wants to put in a used transmission you warranty your labor? I understand maybe get a tranny with a warranty but they should always have to pay the labor on a used part/ parts that they insist on buying.

    Mine lasted 48,000 miles and grenaded while cruising at 70mph with the cruise set on a 3 hour drive. Dealer put another one in and that one has been good ever since. First one must have been built on a Friday.

    Wow mechanics have issues we wouldn’t know unless we seen it. I can imagine jobs being difficult enough without having to deal with differences in known parts. Still a great job explaining thank you!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Levi Mellen says:

    How would I remove just the extension housing? The yoke broke off where the bushing is so there's no play. I've hit it a few times but don't want to damage the shaft

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Eiken says:

    Looks like you need a magnet like

    Had same light same problems. Also always blinding me.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Holtzapple says:

    The tranny your pulling isn't the original. Someone swapped it before and its already gone bad again. I was looking at Silverados because they are supposed to be better trucks. Im not a Ford chevy or dodge guy. They all have problems.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Walsh says:

    I wood just to rid of it

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Celts4Life207 says:

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Viking 2121 says:

    I love older GM's, but yeah I did a trans on a 07 and ran into the same issue, There are a few different 4l60e's I think it has to do with the external trans cooler, some of the trucks had an separate trans cooler whole others are built into the trans, idk why they would change connectors for one or the other, but hey, GM…. lol

    You never know what will go wrong or what parts will be wrong – that's life as a mechanic

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Beepee Fromabove says:

    Harbor Freight's 5000 Lumen, 4 ft. LED light is $20, and the very best work light ever. Attach a couple of globe light style spring clips to the housing. Very versatile.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MoparDan says:

    Eric, I wonder if a light that you could mount on a headband would work better, much like what miners use, just a suggestion.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Villa says:

    Hey so I have a question I can’t seem to find a answer so maybe you can help me. Is there a different transmission outside of the 4L60E that will bolt up to the 5.3l vortec. Just trying to find one that is more reliable

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric Beard says:

    I had 4×4 99 dodge dakota.

    We akig clicking noise I changed alo o suff the bought it to "pro". He saidhe fixe it.. nopr… the he switch transfer case.. then in wa rebalance shaft.. then u joints..

    Ifiwantetdto play caneoarts and gues id done it myself.

    I redid rear bearings and rear end for first time I ever did and problem gone.

    Point is I you've few tools andyouub your smarter the so called pro

    The beauty of the4x4 is the u joints he changed that wee fine broke… so o the highway I took driveshaft off, put bagwith sock over hole to not lose fluid popped it ifwd knowing only fronts would spin and drove miles to GAS Station ..

    Dodge with back speed sensor in rear diff will have every light on your cluster on its odd

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sidney meyer says:

    I'm curious! What does it cost today for any mechanic to replace a rear main seal on a 02 chevy 2500hd 4×4? Just throw me a number, Thanks…….

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sidney meyer says:

    When can I bring you my truck, I need a new rear main seal its leaking oil! Help……

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 8gomerpyle22 says:

    Dude you need to switch to EVs. You're too good for this rusted old ICE crap! Get rid of the exhaust pipe, the manifold, the catalytic converter and the transmission. All you need to fix is the air conditioner, power steering and brakes. Easy peasy.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jerry c says:

    Geez, Mr. O., it looks like for nut you break 2 pounds of rust comes down.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars greg bennett says:

    That sucks when that happens

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Screwdriver Kelly says:

    I just finished the rear main seal, crankshaft sensor and oil pan shield. It was hard AF. I mean the mechanic almost had to use a pry bar to get the 550 out of my hand.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bryan Rose says:

    I feel ya! I hate that crap too!

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Farris says:

    Glad I’m not the only one with the lights. 😂

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Farris says:

    Holy thunder, Eric is wearing gloves!!!!!
