1983 chev trans slips

Thank you for posting back. Is reverse ok?

Although reverse may not matter,slipping in all gears is not good.

Unfortunately Doug there are only two simple things you can check that may create this situation,that I can think of.

First is fluid level. Second is tv cable,out of adjustment,low tv pressure rise.

Are you familiar with checking tv cable? Over time,the cable can stretch,which would cause a low tv pressure condition. This would make the trans slip.

I do not see a history on this tranny in this thread.

Mileage ? , recent repair or rebuild work?

At the carb where the TV cable is hooked...... someone needs to sit in the vehicle ( engine OFF) push the gas pedal to the floor.

Pull on the TV cable while the trottle is held to the floor . Then check for full pull at WOT ( Wide Open Throttle). Check for a loose cable at WOT.

Is the cable hooked up?

If you can not preform this procedure , find a knowledgeable tranny shop or person to help....... good luck.

post back if you need more help.
