I was at full thottle when it happens but doesnt do it all the time.The fluid looks great and is full THANKS.

sounds like a problem in the direct clutch.... the trans is not down shifting , 3rd gear is coming off.

When a t-350 shifts to 3rd gear , 2nd gear remains applied, the roller clutch over-runs. When 3rd gear comes off , the roller clutch engages and you are in 2nd gear again

What is the history on the trans? Fresh rebuild with this v-body? Old trans with v-body change?

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