C6 Transmission issues - 2 questions

1996 E150 4.9L C6 tranny ---
1. This van sat for 3 years. Before being parked, it had 30,000 on rebuild tranny and ran great. Got van started, checked tranny fluid level, put in gear and no go, just slips in reverse and forward. Is it toast? Can it be fixed?

2. There two styles of C6 tranny for this van. ID F2UP-CA or w/o ID F2UP-CA. What is this designation and how do I tell which one I have?

Thanks

Tom

Re: C6 Transmission issues - 2 questions

I don't think they used a c6 in that year. Post a pic of the Trans pan and can help identify

Re: C6 Transmission issues - 2 questions

The tranny has 1st, 2nd, and drive.... no overdrive. It's a 3 speed, so I take it that it is a C6. In my searches online for a possible replacement, several sites list the C6 for this year. In any event, I will take a picture of the tranny pan and post it. Thanks

Re: C6 Transmission issues - 2 questions

The only transmission I found on a V-8 van was the E40D

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

This van has the 4.9L -- an inline 6 cylinder; I think it is also called the 300?

Re: C6 Transmission issues - 2 questions

Is the d on the shifter have a circle on it? Still pretty sure it's not c6. Should be e4od or 4r70.

Re: C6 Transmission issues - 2 questions

The D is not circled. However, the owner seems to remember that it has overdrive. As soon as the dew dries up I will shoot a picture of the pan. Just looking at it, it's about 14" square with one corner missing like a round bite was taken out of it. On top of the bell housing there is the number 65 embossed in numbers about 2' tall. Is there somewhere on the transmission that gives the part number?

Thanks

Looking on the Internet at pictures of the transmission pans of the C6, e4od and 4r70, it is definitely not the 4r70. It looks like the C6, since the pan of the e4od is lot more rectangular.

Re: C6 Transmission issues - 2 questions

Here are two pictures. I haven't put the van on jack-stands yet, so it was hard to get a picture of the entire pan, sorry.

Re: C6 Transmission issues - 2 questions

Yup that's a c6. Never seen one in a van that new. So you are trying to identify for what other purpose. You said it doesn't engage are you sure the linkage is adjusted? That's a starting point. If fluid full and linkage good it's time for overhaul.
