    Reverse BANG!!!... In my case (2 days ago) I had just shifted into reverse to back up a slight grade and BANG - it felt like I had run into a tree. I've been limping around with what appears to be 2 forward gears. It will shift but leaves out a gear between I think. Dang It... Just replaced the Engine this summer. 1999 Silverado Z71 4WD w/ Vortec. Can this tranny be replaced with something more reliable - I'm finding lots of horror stories on the different sites...

I build turbo 350 transmissions. Can you give me more info? Almost always you will have a reverse as long as you have 9 1/2 quarts of transmission fluid. Now if you do not have reverse or a drive and it is full you have one of two problems. A bad (blown convertor) or the pump gear is broke. The pump usually goes out over a coarse of a week until it can not build pressure. The Convertor is usually the stronger piece and makes a shotgun BANG when it goes out. I really need to know how it was acting a week or two before you just had NOTHING. Can I have the style Lock up / non lock up? The year model would help too.

Transmission 1986 gmc vandura 2500with a 350 turbo it goes into gear but doesnt move why

the seals on the main shaft of the transmission have more than likely gone bad. when you place it in drive there is an internal fluid leak that is causing multiple gear engagements. you will need to have it rebuilt.

Mazda bravo b2600 gearbox growles and grumbles. cant select 2nd or 4th gear. 1st, 3rd,5th & reverse ok.

I am sorry to tell that the gearbox need to have some major repair. It is also not advisable to continue driving as the gearbox can breakdown completely leaving you stranded. At least one the cluster drive gears in the gearbox is damaged (gear tooth stripped off) that will result in that only some of the gears being able to be selected. The broken off tooth are still in the gearbox and due to the oil movement in the gearbox it can be "washed up " in between to engaged gears destroying those as well. This will happen up to the point where there are no gear selection at all.

What transmission come out in a 1983 chevy silverado

It should be the 700 r4 transmission with the 350 block,
unless someone changed it out, it could be a turbo 350, if the truck is a 3/4 ton.
if you have 3 gears and over drive it is a 700 r4
only 3 gears turbo 350

Turbo 350 trans no forward gears but does have reverse

It's either your servo, or your bands.
Either way, the tranny needs a good cheap shop repair.
I'd just get a warrantied salvage yard tranny if I were you and save a few hundred bucks.

Will a turbo 350 fit into a 1990 gmc halfton that has a 700 r4 in it

It will mate to the engine, but the turbo 350 is shorter then the 700R4 and your going to loose the lower first gear ratio in the 700R4 and the OD that the Turbo 350 don't have. It can be done, but your going to have to relocate the transmission cross member and have a longer drive shaft made.

Good luck.

I can shift into any gear but only first is engaged.

One of the gearstick joints has disconnected - hopefully not actually inside the gearbox. Gearstick connects to gearbox via a few rods & joints or a pair of cables in sheaths. Check something visibly moves near the gearbox no matter what movement the gearstick makes.

5th gear doesn't lock

5th gear is gone, it'll be cheaper to find a good second hand one with a waranty than to get your one fixed sorry to say. The inside of gearboxes are only a place for gearbox specialists and they arent cheap unless you know someone.
