HELP Could someone please tell me what kind of transmission is in a 1996 Chevy Silverado Truck it has a 5.7 litre vortec motor. I had this transmission rebuilt a little over a yr ago and reverse went out first still can drive but my overdrive is going out. Is there something I could check that could be the problem or is it  needing rebuilt again? I have found a wreck 96 truck but i need to make sure its the right transmission cause I was told I have the rare one when I had it rebuilt just cant rememeber if its 700R4 or 4L60E. Any advice would be appreciated Thanks Gina

Yes on the 4L60E.
No on the trans rebuild shop...wrong place to go, trans should live much, much longer than a year or so.

A 4L60 or a 4L80 would probably work. Just check all the necessary dimensions. The 4L80 might be an electroni switch. Thats one strong trans it weighs a ton. Did you have a 700R4 in your 1999? Good luck.
