That's what broke off when I was frustrated trying to get the transmission off so I guess I'll have to fix that after I get this transmission repaired. O well could be worst could have dropped the transmission. Also give me the opportunity to replace my valve cover gaskets as they are starting to leak. But I still cant thank you enough I would be trying to remove the transmission with that bolt still in it if it was not for you

Do you happen to have a picture of where all the check balls go on the pump side of the transmission?

Looks like the pump failed and broke. I was trying to spin the pump with a knife and it spun until it hit the part that broke. The circled part got stuck. I'm thinking the pump shaft got messed up because it locked up on the pump? Is there a reason why the pump failed, should I keep taking it apart looking and see if anything else broke?

To me it looks like it is time for a rebuild. You have metal throughout the unit you would be gambling to try and fix it with a complete tear down. I can give the rebuild installation and diagrams if you plan to do it yourself. You can get a rebuild kit from rockauto. Com.

I have a question about the pump shaft the original one had this blue hard plastic o ring the new one did not. I tried to remove the o ring and it looked to be damaged. Is it ok to install the shaft with out that plastic part or do I need a pump shaft with it. The new one was exactly identical except the blue plastic part.

Ken if you can give me a link to the rock auto kit I would appreciate it it's the 4t65e-hd but from what I could see on the teardown all the metal was contained in the pump looked like a clean break. Or if you can find a kit that's built better than factor I would appreciate that as I see alot of 06-09 impala ss have problems with the drum failing.

It looks like the only diffrence between the hd and non HD model is the differential. So what rebuild kit would you recommend I dont have paddle shift but can manually pick gears 1-3.

Should I just get the Master Kit (Overhaul Kit + Friction Clutches and Steel Clutch Plates) or is there a different kit that I should purchase? Never mind about the above post I guess that's the seal ring and its meant to have a cut in it. Never looked that close at an input shaft.

Well. No because I'm not going to be able to rebuild it just got a notice from my city saying my car needs to be off jack stands by this Friday or I am getting cited and the rebuilt kit wont get here until Wednesday. Just going to have to hope the magnet and filter picks up the metal if any is left behind. But I'm just wondering if I have to pull it again can the car support its weight with out CV axles? Because if I need to pull it I was going to push my car into my garage because my garage is not that big. Cannot get in front of the car when it's all the way in.

Okay, thanks for the information. Figured that I would have to use the parking brake because the parking paw is in the transmission. I put ever thing back together with out the rebuild kit. If it fails again then that information will help a lot if It fails. But so far it's running and shifting like it should.

Hello, unsure if I should start a new thread or not if no one reply's in 48 hours I guess I will make a new one but everything seems to be good with the car now other than I noticed a transmission leak inspected it and seen that the pan gasket seems to have kinked, is there a specific sequence to put the pan on, and what I read that the transmission pan screws are at 10 ft/IB, 120 inch pound? Also any tips would be helpfully thanks. Also thank you KEN, and ASEMASTER6371 for the amazing help when I was doing this project you guys saved me around $2,500.00.

You are welcome for the help, that what we are here for. :) Here are instructions that should help you with the transmission pan leak:

Notice: Do not use any type of grease to retain parts during the assembly of this unit. Using greases other than the recommended assembly lube changes the transaxle fluid characteristics. Using greases other than the recommended assembly lube causes undesirable shift conditions and/or filter clogging. Use TRANSJEL(TM) J 36850 or equivalent during the assembly of this unit.

1. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle.
2. Place a drain pan under the transaxle oil pan.
3. Remove the transaxle oil pan bolts (23) from the front and the sides of the oil pan.
4. Loosen the rear transaxle oil pan bolts.

Notice: Ensure care is taken NOT to damage the mating surfaces of the oil pan and of the case or oil leaks may occur.

5. Use a rubber mallet to lightly tap the oil pan or use a screwdriver to pry the oil pan loose.
6. Allow the fluid to drain.
7. Remove the remaining transaxle bolts (23).
8. Remove the oil pan (24) from the automatic transmission.
9. Remove the oil pan gasket (25).
10. Inspect the oil pan and the filter for the following foreign material:

* Metal particles
* Clutch facing material
* Rubber particles
* Engine coolant

11. Determine the source of the contamination.
12. Correct the source of the contamination.

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.
