well, it may be true it is damaged beyond reasonable repair. I would start with a compression test.

Understand. Problem is we live about 17 miles from the nearest gas station. It would cost another $100+ to tow it just for that. Is there a way I can test it myself from home?

Hmm, I don't see my original message or the reply. Where did they go?

Well, you would need a compression gauge and a spark plug removal tool to do the compression test gbrozen suggested.
Your earlier posts are just on the preceding page of this thread.

I have a 97 Suburban with a 4L80E transmission that went out. I have found several used 4L60E transmissions. They look the same on the outside. What is the difference between these two transmissions???

Thanks. I will try to see if I can get one from the auto parts store. Do you have any idea how much pressure each cylinder should normally read?

They are switchable but not without a conversion of various parts. The 80 is heavier duty and a better transmission all around.
