I have a 91 350 chevy suburban, it is shifting hard into first and second gear. It has 245,000 miles. We have changed the transmission fluid but still shifts hard.

Been "twisting wrenches" for 25 plus years. Don't know it all but have come across in these older 350 and 305's that if the engine timimg is off you will get the same symptoms. Have you checked the timing and/or reset it ?

Moves slowly when put into drive mode and sometimes just sits there while i hit the accelerator. When it gets going on the highway it seems to be alright until i slow down to a stop and go again. It goes...

Have you changed your transmission oil and filter in a while? Would be a good idea to do so, hopefully you have caught this in time before it is a costly repair to you.

Could a dirty transmition filter cause you to just lose reverse

negative, dirty transmission can restrict some flow to your transmission starving the lubrication and wear the transmission out sooner. if the car drive and shift fine is not your filter. I assumed you have an automatic transmission and lost reverse completely, being 1994 and must have high mileage, have you ever had transmission flush or transmission fluid change? does your transmission has proper amount of fluid in it. Is your transmission leaking fluid slowly? loosing reverse its a sign you transmission is worn out. nothing you can do but rebuilt it or replace it. At the junk yard it will cost about 400-500 bucks and labor run about 300-350. To rebuilding your's 900-1500 bucks including labors. Get use save lots of money. hope that help some ..good luck

1999 gmc suburban rpms go up but car does,nt go any faster

Have you checked the transmission fluid level?  Also, have you changed the transmission filter?  I would definately do these two before I would take it to a shop.  A typical transmission filter/gasket kit costs about $10-15 for that truck.  And the transmission fluid will run around $2-4 per quart.
Changing the filter is easy.  You will just take the transmission pan off and then pull the filter out, replace the filter, and then replace the pan gasket.  Then bolt it all back up and fill it with fluid!  It's that simple.

No gears will engage in my turbo 350 gearbox

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.
