I can't remember if the 4L60 has a small vent tube on the transmission housing or just a breather. Look for one and make sure it is not capped or has a plug in it. I had the same problem with one of our trucks a few days ago and the vent line was plugged. Hope this helps out.

FOund the problum!!!!!! the vent tube runs along the tourq arm so I was following the line and found that it was pinched inbetween the tail mount of the trans not allowing it to vent! so I just cut it before the mount and all is good now thanks NXZ28 for the help

No Problem. Glad you found it before it caused any major damage.
