    just switched out my trans, for 1 thats been rebuilt, seems to work, but issue i got is if i put it in drive, its like in neutral,( which also works) 2nd seems to be my drive, while 1st is my 1st and 2nd gear, im hoping its just the valve body, anyone ever have this issue, think my buddy installed a trans go kit in it,

    Check the shift cable for adjustment. Might have to google your type trans to see how it is properly adjusted.

    .


    Always double check the indents are perfect when swapping trans.

    Good luck.

    Yea Someone could have screwed up the valve body plate, drilled a hole in the wrong spot etc.

    So should be 1 of the 2? Valve body or separator plate. Was scared was inside trans. Fingers crossed it isn't.

    Don't know what trans you have but for the TH350 valve bodies and plates are on ebay for reasonable price, I'd grab both and throw them in and see if it fixes your problem.
