slippage

Hi Guy's,,
I have a 73 chev 3/4 ton, The things just been sitting for about a month now,along side of the shop. I went out to use it and it wouldn't go into gear,it's a auto ,TH-350, Then I noticed a small puddle under it. Checked the level, cold, added a pint. Tried to get it to move and it wouldn't, added a bit more fluid still nothing. I let it sit for awhile,frustrated tried it again it moved. drove it all over town no problems. Parked it, went out a couple days later the same thing all over again, except there was no leak on the ground..
full of fluid,could I have gremlins It did take awhile for the #*&%# thing to get in gear,then it worked fine. It's pissing me off,
This came on all in about a month, worked fine before that,,,

How can it just start leaking fluid, when I only use it ever so often??
Did my seals dry up?? I do live in Arizona. Everything is dry here.
Is it the filter, could have clogged up some how??
Help, I need to haul my project truck to the paint shop,,
Thanks,,

when automatics sit for days ..... the torque converter drains back into the trans over filling it... stuff leaks at places where fluid is not normally sitting at full time.



Sounds like the trans has hard internal seals or an internal leak causing a "no movement" at first.

Might want to look into resealing it. Change the filter and add all new fluid, then let it warm up and try to operate it. Filter could definitely be clogged. Try that first, then if it still acts up, look into reseal or rebuild (if the rebuild isn't too much more than the reseal, have them start a reseal and while it's open if they find it needs to be rebuilt, just have them do it then). Good luck!

slippage,,

Thanks guy's,,
I'm going to do first things first,, change out the filter and old fluid then go from there..
I'm hoping that will cure it,, if not well it's of to the repair shop...
It's a junk yard tranny that I put in a year ago,, no warranty now,,
It worked good great, it pulled a good load down here, Arizona from Washington State, it did all the hauling to help build our new house, then it just sat for a month now it's doing this,

hope to get it right soon, Thanks again, you guy's ROCK..

Bob,,

Might try a jug of CD-2 or some other kind of transmission treatment. You'll need to drive it around some after you put it in, but I've had it help a couple of trannys cut way down on their fluid appetites.
