Tranny shops in Sac area :(

Ok, so my transmission started grinding randomly. Its been slipping for a while, so im guessing this is the last step before it dies. Doesn't grind when shifting, but im guessing its grinding when the tc is engaging/disengaging. Didn't get to really check it out, its raining like a bi%ch out rite now. Hopefully its just a ujoint or something.... [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

I serached, but didn't find anythign this time. I remember a performance rebuild for a 4l60e was like 1400-1800? That sound right? What have you guys paid? What do i need to specifically ask for in terms of upgrades besides a HUGE cooler?

And lastly, anyone have tranny shop reccomendations in the Sacramento, Ca area?

Thanks guys!

Sacramento Transmission Exchange. They are a little spendy but they know what they are doing. They will beef it up for you and turn out something nice. I have had 2 rebuilt there, different trucks. I have sent friends there and they were pleased. They are on Folsom Blvd. Call around. You can also call S&H 4 wheel drive, I wouldn't deal with the Cottman people on Arden though.

Re: Tranny shops in Sac area :(

Ok, thanks! I think it may have just been a loose heat shield. It made teh noise this morn, then stopped, and still shifts fine. I couldnt' get it to make the noise when i got it to a tranny shop.

But i did figure out one of my other noises, its pinging. This is bad, cause its been doing this for a while, i thought it was a ujoint or something mechanical.

Anyone care to explain causes/fixes for pinging? I've got a little idea what it is, but not much. THanks!

Re: Tranny shops in Sac area :(

pinging is caused by preignition. either the compression ratio is too high for the gas you're using, the heat can be too high adn its acting kinda likea diesel, or the timing can be off. try running premium gas to see if that helps. if not its likely the timing.
