A Georgia Fiero member is in need of a 4T60E transmission. The transmission is from a 95 Park Avenue with a 2:84 final drive. What have you, where, and price?
If you cannot locate a good working 4T60e you can purchase a complete rebuild kit, and torque converter for under $300 . Then you purchase the rebuild manual ($30 on eBay) and use the You Tube videos as a guide. Rebuilding an auto trans is just a simple but careful replacement parts job. The only stickler would be if the pump is worn. In that case a new pump housing would be needed but I am not sure where you can buy one. If the differential is the problem then those gears can be found. Most of the time on the 4T60e a new sprocket, and clutch plates usually does the trick.

We have a new member to the club that has indicated that he's able to rebuild automatics. With that, and a $300 price tag on a used one with only 30 days warranty, and another that was $625 but turned out to be bad, the $300 rebuild sounds pretty good. I'll forward this on to TopNotch, who's the one in need.
We have TransStar located very near us so getting parts shouldn't be a problem. Thank you for the suggestion.
I have a 4T60E transaxle from a 95 Cutlass Supreme that was attached to a 3.4DOHC engine. I bought the engine and the trans came with it., but I don't plan to use it. I can send a photo of the tag on the trans if you would like. I am located just outside of Columbia SC, and would let it go for $50. Rick
We found one already pulled at a yard in Lavonia, Ga. Only a 30 day warranty from the time it's picked up. Not sure if he's going to get that one, or try to have his rebuilt. $300 for the one at the yard and it would apparently be about that much to rebuild his.
The pullapart yards here have rolling gantries available for dropping engines and cradles. I've seen some at the Atlanta North yard using them. Probably a rental fee. Unless you got something from a wrecked car that was likely being driven when wrecked, there's no guarantee of a good engine or transmission.
Also, I have no idea of the condition of the trans. I got it from a guy who got it from a guy and I have no way to have tested it.
Not to be negative about it but I purchased a "good solid used" 4T60e transmission off a junkyard in Phila. The yard guy said "don't worry it ran well and I'll give you a 30 day warranty". Put it in 45 days later, started the engine, put in drive and grrrrrrrrr and no movement. Not saying all junkyard guys are this dishonest but when you purchase used (and if you never see it run) , I would stay away. I am not against buying good used but I'll need to see a trans or engine, running next time I buy. This bad experience experience cost me $250. If you are good about disassembling and carefully reassembling stuff most mechanically inclined people can rebuild an automatic if you buy the rebuild manual and listen to the You Tube videos Here's Gary taking one down: https://youtu.be/IyRLGXIWlz4

3.4 DOHC? That being the case, the final drive (probably based upon differential gearing, as well as drive/driven sprockets) is supposed to be 3.42. I've seen a chart, somewhere, that details this. Think it was on GMtuners dot com. I'll see if I can find it. If I can, I'll edit it in.
