Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum Discussion, 4t65e trans in Past Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; Dayum, 14yrs, and 180k miles. And it fails. Whatever happened to good old American craftsmanship?...
I am doing labor. I can pull trans. I cannot tear trans apart. My trans has 180k miles and has issues. Is another trans with 130k miles better? Yard says its ok. $200 crapshoot. No shop will tear down my trans and fix what's broke for cheap.
Yep. Pulled trans. It is a 9BCB. Found a 99 venture trans. All info I see says 99 venture only came with 9bcb. But Hollander exchange says gp and venture for 99 will not swap. This trans is private party. Talked to 3 diff yards and they all say no go. Have not looked at trans so I don't know what tag says
Yard says 99 gp is 1 yr specific. A 2k does not fly according to hollinder. I see ID tag info online and it says 99 venture is bcb only but 2k venture is bcb or brb. Seller has 15 trans and is 99% sure trans is 99venture. I am going to check it out tomorrow
Finished. Shifts fine. Got 3rd gear too. Woohoo. Seized brake caliper from over extended piston due to totally worn pads messed up the axle install process. It's always something unplanned to complicate job. Not that removing trans is ever easy. I think a gp trans job is MUCH easier than Seville.
