turbo 350 : is it shifted out?

Can you guy tell me is my tranny shifted in high gear? I feel no shifts , but everything seems fine. Ive been driving it for about a month and no problems , no slipping. Is it possible that it is just taking off in drive and just by passes ist and 2nd? Wouldnt be burnt up by now? It is sluggish taking off. Could it be that smooth that I dont feel it shift?

I agree, sounds like the detent cable. The transmission can operate without it, you just don't get the passing gears, and that means that you don't get to have any fun It doesn't take long to fix.

Best way to find out is to pull the shifter down into first, then manually go through the gears. The kickdown won't have an affect on the normal shifting, but the governor and modulator will.

by the sound of what ur saying, with it being sluggish at takeoff, my guess with u also not feeling any shifts makes it look as though the govenor gear has broke or "apple cored". i agree with robinson robin about trying to maually changing gears to see if u can feel any difference... if u do,,, the govenor would be the 1st thing i check... the detent cable on a 350 is just for passing gear... so even if the cable was frayed and stuck, if anything it would just make it shift hard and late, nothing of which u describe... gl
