Question about 1983 Chevrolet Chevy
My dip stick broke so I could not tell the fluid levels. I added Lucas Transmission and another 1/2 quart of trans fluid. The level is well above the "full" level on the dip stick.

SOURCE: transmission slams into gears
you cant it a self seal transmission supposedly design to be maintenance free up to 100k miles which GM claims. my opinion is the worst transmission GM ever came out with. they should recall every single one of those car replacing all car with new transmission. If you leak and loose all the fluid you in deep trouble, I recommend take it to the dealership and have it look at. Supposing ly you have to brake tran-ny loose to fill the fluid. I hate to say be careful driving that car without or little of tran-ny fluid, you will burn your tran-ny very quick and the car will be no good. I hope that help

you may be confusing the torque converter clutch engagement with o.d. this trans has a problem with the T.C.C. regulator valve wearing out the valve body bore. this will cause the converter clutch to engage only sometimes or not at all. this will set a P1870 code in the control module. when this code is stored in the controller, ( check engine light may or may not be on), it increases the pressure in the transmission causing the 1-2 shift to be harsh. ask a local tranny shop to scan the vehicle ( most will do this for free) if this is the problem they can either fix your valve body (sonnax parts) or replace it with an upgraded valve body. hope this helps
