Our 4L80E Updates and Upgrades

► Fully remanufactured valve body, with complete system correction and recalibration kit, improves pressure control and shift quality.
► Upgraded actuator feed limit valve prevents missing shifts and premature transmission failure.
► Upgraded 34 element intermediate sprag increases holding capacity.
► All-new shift solenoids ensure positive shifting.
► EPC solenoid is tested separate from the transmission to confirm precise pressure control.
► Case connector is updated to the latest design on pre-1994 versions, and a vehicle harness pigtail is provided to address connection issues with the early design.
► Updated force motor for improved pressure control.
► Updated pressure regulator prevents overly high pressure.
► No Walkout rear case bushing is installed, addressing an OE flaw, to prevent case and output shaft damage.
► Fully remanufactured torque converter is tested for leaks, lock-up, concentricity, and balance. Upgrades exceed OE requirements and eliminate the possibilities of front seal leaks, premature bushing wear, and vibration.
► All new, bushings installed in key locations to improve internal fluid flow control and fluid pressures.
► Complete system correction and recalibration kit installed to address several OE flaws. Modifications include updates to servos, the PR system, and valve body accumulators.

4L80E / 4L85E Vehicle Applications

How Many Variations of the 4L80E?

There are many different variations of the 4L80E (so we have many different part numbers!). Each one for a different engine size (bellhousing), 4WD vs. 2WD and varying electronic and solenoid systems for different years.

Only certain models will interchange with others, which is why we ask for your 17-digit VIN# when you order so we are 100% sure it is the matching unit for your vehicle!

Remanufactured 4L80E vs. Rebuilt or Used

Reman 4L80E vs. Rebuilt 4L80E?
Both are good options but the best option for you depends on the transmission problem, the year, make and model of vehicle, the mileage and the vehicle value. What kind of warranty coverage are you looking for? Remanufactured transmissions carry a longer, 3 year, nationwide warranty with additional upgrades while a rebuilt unit generally carries up to a 1 or 2 year warranty and upgrades vary from shop to shop.
Reman 4L80E vs. Used 4L80E?
Buying a used 4L80E transmission may save you money. However, if the unit does not work properly after installed, you will more than likely have to pay the labor again for removal and reinstall of the transmission PLUS the freight to ship the transmission back to the salvage yard. The additional cost may be higher than installing a reman or rebuilt transmission–not to mention the extra downtime. Warranties for a used transmission is only 30 days, 60 days, 90 days or 6 months. Used transmissions, since there is no way to know how many miles are on them, may fail at any time.

4L80E / 4L85E History

The 4L80-E (and similar 4L85-E) is a series of automatic transmissions from General Motors. Designed for longitudinal engine configurations, the series includes 4 forward gears. It is an evolution of the Turbo-Hydramatic 400, first produced in October, 1963. 4L80-Es have been optioned only in Chevrolet/GMC heavy duty pickups, vans, and commercial vehicles, and the Hummer H1, with the exception of certain Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Jaguar and Aston Martin models.

The 4L80 and 4L85 were built at Willow Run Transmission in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

The “MN8” 4L85-E is able to handle vehicles with up to 460 ft·lbf (624 N·m) of torque. Final drive ratios include 3.42, 3.73, and 4.10.

The “MT1” 4L80-E is able to handle engines with up to 440 ft·lbf (597 N·m) of torque.[1] Final drive ratios include 3.42, 3.73, and 4.10.

The 4L80E and 4L85E was rated to max GVWR of 18,000 (Axle and vehicle dependent).

4L85E transmissions have issues with early style 12 pin harnesses in which transmission fluid leaks around the harness and shorts the pinouts causing transmission to go into “limp mode” This issue can be easily rectified by simply cleaning the plug.

The 4L80E/4L85E transmission was replaced by the 6L80/90 transmission in new models around 2005.
