1970 impala t-350, reverse only

Hey guys I have a 1970 impala and my transmission has recently started going only in reverse ..no drive but the funny thing is when I bring it all the way to my lowest gear it goes back in reverse. I thought it might be low on fluid because this has happened before when I was low on fluid,it is a turbo 350 and has never given me any issues other than what I listed above I appreciate any suggestions or help thanks....

Welcome to Hotrodders.com

I edited the thread title. Try to put in vehicle information on the thread title so the folks here have a better idea what your question is.

Since you have reverse, this tells me the pump is working enough to move the car. It also tells me the input shaft is receiving power from the engine.

I suspect you have a forward clutch problem.

Have you moved the shifter all the way to manual "1" to see if the car will move forward?

When you run a trans low on fluid, often the first clutch pack damaged is the forward clutch in a t-350

Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.

Turbo 350 transmission problems

Yes..when I put the shifter all the way to first it goes back in reverse...if it is a clutch issue is that something I can do myself or is it time for a rebuild..and if so should I pay full price for a rebuild or try to just have the clutch replaced..thanks H20
