Whatever **** means? If the fluid level is full, then you have a trans problem. I would call a trans shop, or the shop that rebuilt it. They will know what to check/ fix.

I have a street fighter transmission fluid levels r fine but wont shift

Hows the fluid Look? Red, brown, black? how's it smell? like trans fluid or burnt? What do you have? the 350, 350 turbo, or 400 transmission? Fairly easy to rebuild. By chance( I don't know when they came out) the 700R4. I bit more difficult to build. Find someone that knows about these. Buy the manuals and upgrades. Follow them closely. has them.

My 1995 2500 chevy trans shifts good from forward to reverse but don't shift to any higher forward gears sat for a couple months before that no issues this truck has the 6.5 turbo

Thats not good !
I suggest that the truck be started and warmed up a while.
Then try to drive it around a bit in the yard or where ever.
If that doesnt work out the suspected clog, then I would roll under the truck and look to see if something hasn't eatten away at the wire harness for the trans.

Can get all forward gears but can not put it into reverse gear unless the car has been warmed up for ten minutes

The seals inside your transmission are bad and leaking by and they don't start to seal until the tranny fluid warms up and swells the seals. To temporarily fix this problem you can pour some brake fluid into your transmission fluid. This will swell the seal in the transmission and it should start working again. This is only a temporary fix however, eventually you will ned to replace or rebuild your tranny. I used this method on a turbo trans 350 and got a year of service out of it that way before I had to replace the tranny. Just do not put too much brake fluid into the tranny, I would recommend one or two capfuls to start with.

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.

Reverse is slipping in my turbo 400

Out side of a replacement or rebuild your options are limited most all turbos i have had in my 4x4's reverse is the first gear to go out, you can try an additive like lucas or something like that and see, your only out the price of it, but before you do that pull the dip stick and smell the fluid if it smells burnt don't waist you money on the additive and put it tords another trans. or a rebuild.

Automatic transmission kills engine when put into gear.

Do you know what year the 400 turbo is. It sounds like the converter is locked up. I can't remember if any of the 400's had a lock up converter but I will check.

Pressure but no mechanical power with all gears on THM 350 Trans

Possible that you could have a bad torque converter, or your input shaft splines are sheared off.

Tranny goes in reverse but wont go into foward gears

how many miles on trans? does fluid smell burnt?350 turbos are good tranneys but they do go bad. in my experance its reverse that goes out first on thies transmissions but thats not saying that it does not happen the other way either. my best guess is you need a rebuild. when you say it tries to move in forward gear that tells me that the clutches are shot. 350 turbos are worth rebuilding. its up to you.
