I had the same thing. worked for a bit after pumping the cable in and out few times and then go back to shit not long after. The longest I got it to work was about half a day.


Still at least I could drive it in the mean time. None of the previous VP autos I had could drive at all, they acted like they were in N


I'm going to take the pan off and remove the tv plunger and take the valve out to clean and check for damage hopefully I can buy some more time.

Just a update guy's I've decided to stick with my transmission and I'm doing a full rebuild, when I pulled the transmission apart the tv valve was stuck which burned out the 3-4 clutches and steel's and the torque converter is fucked from the heat, I have already installed the transgo shift kit into the valve body and drilled the separator plate here are some pictures of how the transmission sits now.

Haven't been on for a while so here's the latest i finished rebuilding the transmission and it's back in the car, haven't tested it yet as I'm still waiting for a pressure gauge to make sure it's running at the correct pressures and oil temperature gauge to turn up.

Parts list

High energy clutches for low/reverse, forward, and reverse. Raybestos zpak for 3-4 clutch. Wide band. Reverse drum. Corvette servo. Accumulator pistons. Hughes heavy duty low/reverse sprag and 29 element input sprag. Bearings. Beast sunshell. Rubber moulded piston upgrade. All new bushes. 3rd accumulator capsule. Sonnax check valve. Shift kit. Trans cooler.

I hope this thing works haha.

I reckon! my mate did a similar upgrade on his 4l60e and it all worked out great. Scary moment really, given how many parts and complexity to an auto
I'm the director of VSH (Vlad's Spec Holden), because HSV were doing it ass about.

I think our VX needs that check valve. I think it's easy to fit?
