What transmission?

Hi folks.

Trying to identify my trans, to wet for crawling around

W18 Workhorse, 2008 MY and it's the four speed hydramatic, but which one, google is not being friendly, or I'm asking the question wrong?

Grommet on the dipstick is weeping so need to get a replacement.

I think that information is coded into the VIN number for your chassis. You could google "VIN decoder" or "W18 workhorse VIN decoder" and then plug your VIN into one of those online tools that google can send you to.

Damon should be able to give it to you.

I think it might be a GM 4L80-E transmission but your going to have to confirm with a physical inspection.

According to the 2009 Chassis Guide published by WCC, the 2008 W-18 used the 6.0L Vortec engine and the GM 4L-85E 4 speed automatic tranny.


If you email to edgray1@gmail.com the last eight (8) digits of the chassis vin#, I can get you the entire build sheet.
