Did you get enough fluid back in it?

I added 7 quarts but it was a quart low still added another quart still didnt move.

The thing that gets me is it kicks when I first put it in gear then nothing not sure what it could be.

I read something that said to give it a little gas in reverse or something said a valve could be stuck im not sure though.

It could cause it but doubtful.. did you change the tranny's filter while you had the pan off also? And just wondering but with just a filter change my th350 only holds around 4.5 quarts? Are you checking the fluid when it is warm and running?

That would be my very next step! Draining some of the old fluid out could have trapped sediment on top of your filter. usually if you ask for a new filter it will come as a kit along with a new pan gasket for just a few bucks.

NEVER a good idea to reuse any types of fluid... in the lil time that it was in there it could of picked up any type of sediments or metel from the trans !!

I was never the transmission guy I can do the work but I know a guy who builds racing trans. but he lives far away now. He always told me I needed a 700r4
I personally like them better too.
