      Let's be honest, at least those lasted longer than Honda automatics that were paired to a V6.

    I dunno… every Chrysler product?

    Also anything with a Northstar needed new head bolts. Not unreliable as in breaking down often but unreliable in that it was guaranteed to break down pretty quickly.

      the northstars didnt have problems until a bit later in life. i think gm and ford overall were ok-really depending on model. But as far as cars and not trucks go? the only semi solid thing coming from chrysler was the neon. and thats saying something

        Dodge pickups with magnum series engines were moron proof and undying. But everyone who optioned an automatic rather than the available manual paid the price. Probably the most reliable Chrysler product, as the Cummins was not theirs. Ironic that the literal factually and demonstrably most reliable engine ever available in a vehicle that did not require a commercial license(the 12 valve Cummins) was offered by the company that made generally the least reliable vehicles at the time.

          Well the magnums were pretty much the la engines with different heads and timing chain covers and that's about it. Pretty damn hard to frick up your bread and butter that's been around since the 60s. Hell the la engines even finished production with roller cams and the early magnum heads would bolt right onto those if they had the correct oiling holes.
          No idea why anyone would ever want an auto in a heavy duty truck unless if they plan on building the auto and the engine for power numbers.

          Those new process transmissions were total dogshit.

        If the Northstar wasn't a problem early on then why did so many people elect to go with the 4.9 when the Northstar dropped?

        literally as wrong as it's possible to be. they were shit from day 1 and GM spent its entire production run trying to fix them. they managed to stop the heads from popping with the third revision around 2002.

      >Aurora was in a class of its own largely due to Olds somewhat un-fricking the Northstar and sinking money into the platform (but it wasn't enough to save them from GM's axe)
      I guess the Silhouette kind of sucked like the other GM dust buster vans (lol).

        AODE or 4R70W in the 4.6 was better than the 4L60 imo

        And 4R100 in the 5.4s was way better than any GM or Mopar trans of that time. It was what came in the F250s

          4.6 V8 with the 4R70W was a godly Ford pairing. Both were amazing. Had a car with them that got to just under 300k miles, both original. Car rotted away so bad it basically ceased to exist on its own and I had to junk it. Only reason its gone.
