    I have the 700r in an 83 chevy stepside with 4 wheel drive. The truck is lifted about 15 inches and has 44" tires. I just bought it from some guy buy I noticed right away that when I try to drive in any kind of mud, or even just accelerate somewhat fast it just feels like it goes into neutral. There is definately something slipping. I tried tightening the cable which I was told that it increases line pressure in the transmission. I seemed to help somewhat, but it still slipps pretty bad. Does this sound like a rebuild?? Thanks in advance!

Dude.. You need to adjust the TV cable or it is broken. It runs from the throttle to the transmission. It sounds like it is starting off in the wrong gear. All of this is due to that cable man! Have it checked out before it burns the trans out! Also; make sure it is full on fluid, and DO NOT over fill it. After you have driven it for a while, stop on level ground, put it in park, and check the dipstick. check it many times, and go by the low side of the stick. It may read up there on one side but low on the other, and if this is the case it is low. The fluid should show full on both sides of the stick. When changing the filter, there is a grommet type seal that goes up in the valve body, and they are very hard to change without the proper tool to do it with. A common mistake is some people think the old one is out and put the other one in, and have two in it. This will cause all kinds of problems. If that seal gets damaged it will **** air and cause the trans to give problems. Good Luck!

I have a 1992 chevy caprice.when i put it into reverse i get a little buzzing sound that goes away within a few seconds. any clue what that is? thanks

That is the sound of the valve body opening and closing the reverse valve really fast. It means the tranny is going out. You can try to use something like Lucas tranny conditioner or Marvel mystery oil to get a little more use out of it, but eventually the transmission will fail. The good news is that the transmission is fairly cheap to purchase used. It will be a 700R4 or a 4L80.

I took my 700r4 transmission out of my 88 chevy caprice because i had performance done to engine. is it a smart idea to hook a 400 transmission up to it

I would stick with the 700r4 and have it gone thru and maybe have a shift kit installed. You may have to change out some things putting in a 400.

Transmission leak 94 caprice classic

If its in the line its self just cut the line in two and take some fuel line hose, the right diameter, slip it over the line with a couple of clamps and that should fix it. Theres not much pressure there and its a cheap fix.
