Default tranny question

iv got a 2002 silverado 1500 and when leaving work tonight had a big bang from underneith the truck, i manualy shifted it through the gears to find that reverse, over drive, and second gear do noghting but rev up.
any ideas im asuming its toast but the tranny fluiid is red and doesn't smell burnt, i am missing somthing or just the common things and its gone, also it was perfesionaly flushed and had anti shutter stuff added last year somtime and never had any problems, need info asap being its a dd for work and hunting so any ideas greatly appreciated and anyone knowing how to rebuild these in the area shoot my a price of helping me rebuild it can pull and supply beer if necesary and will also buy the master rebuild kit.
thanks drew

The whining noise is the sunshell, the splines are probably stripped out. The sunshell is considered a hard part and it does not come in a rebuild kit. You will have to buy it separately, they cost about $50.

You don't want to get a stock replacement. Get one of these instead. http://racetransmissions.com/store/p...roducts_id/692

Let us know how it goes. Also, I know a guy in Twin Lake who would rebuild it. He does good work and only a guess, but around 800-1000 to rebuild including parts. If you want his # let me know. He does good work and in certifed etc....

Another option would be to try and find a good used one. You could always rebuild it youself, just get a step by step book for your tranny...I am assuming it is a 4l60e?

pull the trans out your self and then take it in, usually cost me about $400 when i pull them and take them down to have them fixed

i will be pulling it myself and most likely rebuilding it myself being we have to rebuild a buddys 93 4l60e in a week or so and we have a exploded view lay out of how everything goes back in and have a guy at the parts store willing to give us a hand. so inless i find somthing diffrent i will be pulling it and rebuilding it my self, and buying an aftermarket sunshell so i dont have to worry about this probem again.

what should i be looking for and replacing besides the sunshell when i tear this apart just pieces of the sunshell or just clean everything out. also should i replace the pump and the torqe converter or are they going to be good to reuse the tranny has 158xxx miles if that makes a diffrence.

look over the gear that goes into your sunshell i have seen some of the splines on those get rounded off after the sunshell stips out. I would make sure all of the valves are free in the valve body just in case any metal got down in there.
