REVIEWS YOU CAN TRUST 

We strive to always give you genuine, accurate information. To do this, all of mechanicguides.com reviews are based on market research, expert input, and practical experience. This knowledge comes from a team of automotive journalists and an independent mechanic, Steve “Whip” Whipple who has 11 years of experience in the auto industry. For more information, see here.

I was recently asked What is the fluid capacity of a 4l60e transmission? The 4L60E transmission delivers a 6 Liter capacity. However, to allay any mystery around the issue of this part, look at how the name came about, it explains it all.

The 4L60E stands for a 4-forward gear, longitudinal (rear wheel drive), the 60 stands for the gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 6,000 pounds and the E is Electronic.

These transmission systems are impressive and are used in both cars and trucks, and this transmission system is found in virtual all GM rear wheel driven vehicles including Sonoma, Tahoe, Safari, Astro, Yukon, Firebird, Camaro, and Corvette.

This model is so solid, that is has lasted over a quarter of a century and will most probably continue to be the leading automatic transmission from GM.

The 4L60E is a symbol of strength and durability, with broad application, is a great unit for Jeeps, comes in a modular design and is being constantly upgraded.

Now enough praise lets look at some of the best aftermarket 4L60E automatic transmission systems.

This 4L60E transmission comes with the bolt-on bell-housing that fits Small Block Chevy/Big Block Chevy & 4.3L V6 engines.
