So, my Chevy Tahoe 4L60e Transmission Exploded recently and you might be surprised that I am happy about the whole thing. My plan all along has been to swap out the 4L60e for the much stronger 4L80e and add a turbo to the truck. With the turbo, the Tahoe will have more than 500+ horsepower and the 4L60e is good to about 350hp. In addition, the trans blew up about a mile from my house on a beautiful Sunday evening when I wasn’t late for an appointment, or anything that important. I had the truck towed back to my house and dropped at the bottom of my driveway and next, I had to figure out how to get the truck up the driveway. Check out the next post to see how I did it. Meanwhile, here’s the video from that night.
Hey everybody Steve here and I’m stranded on the side of the road with the Tahoe. We had a transmission failure just now. I tried to shift in a third gear and it went [makes sound] and started smoking like crazy and I’ll show you the trail. There’s a trail it came screaming around that corner right there ended up down yonder right about there, came to a stop. At first, I thought it was just antifreeze but it was transmission fluid so then I decided to try to nurse at home. I’m only a mile from home and I got about right there and I was really apprehensive about going out into traffic so I just kind of let it sit there and went ahead and tried to engage and I have no gears at all so I ended up right here and here’s where we’re at. There’s the mess so I’m going to get a tow home and got another project.
I suppose if you’re gonna break down there are worse places to break down. I got Dunkin Donuts right here so I’m going in while I’m waiting for AAA I’m going to get me some doughnuts.
I think this got the makings of another YouTube video huh. There we go, we’re doing it again. So, I’m in the tow truck and there’s a Tahoe right behind me and the guy stopped at QT to get himself some whatever it is that he gets but anyhow. When I said lots more videos to come I meant it, lots more videos to come, it doesn’t get any more real than this.
