Would you drive a car when the engine is on it's last leg? Or mayb real low oil pressure?

There is a problem with the trans and it will not get better or go away. It will chew it's self up slowly as you drive it.

On the flip side , you may be a lucky person and the trans could drive for another year

M&M CUSTOM Chazmac AND Crosley together in a thread to answer this, I am thinking from what Chazmac didn't cover in his detailed enough answer basically says between the lines that it needs removed and you are chugging along with a countdown timer that will either stick or run fast, basically saying it's only a metter of time before the transmission "tells" you that it quit.

drchevy4x4 A Jegs Turbo 350 is only $650 and I feel confident that we could install it without any problems. So I'm not worried about a $1500-$2000 dollar repair but thanks for the words of caution. Still hoping to hear from Chazmac or another experienced tranny guy.

You might have to order a whole new rebuild, although you do have those cores. It's up to you really, but your son is going to be stuck on the way to work one day, and he's going to lose money to that tow-truck man.

Sorry, pull it out. Can't fix it in the car......
Will the transmission explode if my son drives it like it is for a while....funds are low right now and he really needs his car to get back and forth to work. We have 2 cores that I can rebuild later (summer) but we need to get all the parts to do it.

the transmission was never useed by us before the shiftkit install.

turbo 350 diagnosis help

Transmission rebuilt about 10 yrs ago never needed it until this week. Added a Hurst Stage2 Shift Kit (Street Strip) and installed in 75 Nova.
Here's the problem:
From a stop
Reverse engages fine
Drive doesn't engage
Second doesn't engage
First engages fine

After starting from 1st -
Shifts into second, pretty hard but since shift kit is installed I guess ok
Shifts into Drive ok
While in Drive it will shift up and down automatically fine while moving until stopped then doesn't want to go forward until you drop it back down to First

Also manual shifts from Drive to Second and drive to first work correctly
(no hesitation and engine decelerates as it should)

Does this seem like a Valve Body issue? Or is something else going on?
