The GM Turbo-Hydramatic 4T65E is a four-speed automatic transmission that appears in vehicles from 1997 that come with a 3800 engine. In 2000, there was an update to the valve body. This was also the year that the transmission started featuring in vehicles with a 3400 engine. The 4T65E transmission can cope with vehicles up to 6500 lbs., making it ideal for minivans.
