Post 350 turbo hradramatic reverse probs.

So here's the deal - when I put it in reverse nothing happens for second. When it's cold it'll kick in pretty soon at idle but when it gets warmer you have to increase the RPM then "boom" it catches. What's goin'on and can I fix it in the truck? <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" />

This is going to sound silly did you check the fluid level? If so the tranny needs to be rebuilt. The clutchs are more than likely shot in the forward drum.

My 350 does the same thing, but not as bad. When it's cold it goes into reverse like normal. After it warms up it takes about 15 Seconds to click into reverse and it shifts fine in ALL forward gears. I've been driving it that way for a couple of years & it is still the same. I think it's leaky reverse piston seals. When the fluid is cold its thicker & therefore more pressure and as it warms up it gets thinner and less pressure to activate thr reverse clutch piston (maybe thats the one thats leaking). I don't think it's the clutches or bands otherwise it will slip in gear when you get on it.

Thanks for the feed back. I've been told a couple of different things. 1st I'm told that the pick-up filter is clogged. 2nd that there is a leaking seal and that possibly an additive may help. That's all I've gotten so far.
