    I just got off the phone with a friend of mine and his 700r4e just quit on him it was just rebuilt a 14 months ago (2 months past warrenty) he said it dumped a bunch of fluid and the temp got hot in it. could the torqe converter cause that? I was just taking a guess but maybe someone can put me in the right direction /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    If it dumped a bunch of fluid then it might have blow the front seal.

    Where did it leak it from cause I had this happen to me once and it was the governor cover that had popped off.

    For some reason theres no clip to hold it in place. Got one off a th350 and fixed problem..

    first lets call it what it is a 4l60e not a 700r4e, close but different inside
    well it could be the front seal, pan, cooler lines, or servo cover, there is no governer on the 4l60e

    if it was the front seal, you most likely need to replace the pump. the bushing got loose some how and spun and tore the front seal. (this happened on my dads van, pump cracked under bushing)

    if it was the pan you would be able to see it.

    check the cooler lines to see that they are not cracked and still hooked up.

    servo cover posibly came off and pumped fluid out. (not likely unless snap ring was not installed correctly)

    also it could be a cracked or broken case somewhere /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    no such thing as 700r4e, they were 700r4 through 91 but some 92 were still 700r4, but other 92 went ahead over to 4L60E, that is the RWD version, the front wheel version is the 4T60E, and there is a HD truck one called 4L80E, new for 92 or 93 or so, they say the 80E is th400 version, basically HD version of 4L60E

    Could have been overfilled (possibly)
    Was he towing with it when this happened?

    Where did the fluid come out of the tranny from? The fill tube? If it was the fill tube I bet it over heated. Change the fluid and filter and put a big cooler on it.
