Time for rebuild?

So yesterday I jumped in my car and ran to the store real quick. Well I didn't necessarily let it warm up enough and when taking off in low it felt like it was stalling out higher than normal.. So I put it in drive and it drove just fine. It took me about 2 mins since the store is around the corner on my way back I stopped and tried it again. This time it felt in a bind or something an hardly wanted to move. This was up an incline pulling it in my driveway.. I'm going to recheck the fluid today but it should be good considering it doesn't leak. Any suggestions?

What fluid are you talking about, the oil? Can you give us a little more details? Like stalling higher than normal.

P.s. with you s/c I would try not to drive it till the problem is solved. And if you are working on it , don't rev it either.

right. Lol.

If this happened suddenly, there is a good chance it could be the cable or quadrant. Even a bent fork. And clutch adjustment. Not for sure but worth checking first along with the fluid.

That would be nice.. Cause in drive it went in first and did just fine. It was like it was between gears and not quiet catching when I put in first manually.

Re: Time for rebuild?

Sounds like the linkage may be out of adjustment and you actually had it between gears. When putting it in drive the trans detent probably insured the correct position. I would not be manually shifting the trans unless it has been built for it, especially with a supercharged engine.

P.S. this has nothing to do with your transmission, but drive slow and easy until your engine oil warms up good. Especially important if it is feeding your SC or Turbo too. Oil doesn't lubricate real well until it reaches about 180°.

It's a built c4 but not a manual valve body, I do manually shift to much I've always had built auto's Just my preference. It's so nice when a lil evo or SS wants to run and you know your not gonna miss a gear..

Hmmm, does it have a trans brake in it?
Just thinking that if it does and you accidently activated it, that may cause the symptoms you experienced.

No brake anywhere but idk of he removed it cause he told me he has been 6.9's in the eighth on the trans brake

It also has stock ignition.. It doesn't have a 2 step so I doubt this trans has a brake.. Can they be removed?

Yes, but you have to replace the entire valve body.
See if you have a solenoid sticking out of the trans with wires on it.


That's pretty crappy of him if he removed that from your trans.
