GM used its 4L30 transmission between the production years of 1991 and 2001 in the North American market. The development of a 4-speed gearbox that was capable of electronic controls was one of the firsts for General Motors. The France produced E series models were ultimately installed in a number of vehicles. A buyer of vehicle parts ready to find a 4L30 transmission for sale online can shop this parts website.
The licensing that GM obtained to distribute its electronic gearboxes to other automotive companies paid of in a big way. Brands like Isuzu, Acura and BMW were early adopters of the 4L30E transmission brand. Because of the differences in gear ratios, the added reverse gear was a good pairing with I4 and V6 motor blocks in multiple brands of motor vehicles used worldwide.
4L30E Transmission Specs
While not only built for gasoline motor blocks, GM successfully used the 4-speed automatic models for some diesel vehicles with a 2.5 engine. Vehicles which had a gross weight of under 7,716 pounds were able to benefit from the solenoid controls found in the 4L gearboxes. The maximum shift speed that could be obtained through use of the turbo-hydramatic series was 6500 RPM.
