View Full Version : Delayed Reverse(automatic)

Whenever I shift into reverse it takes about 2 seconds before it kicks in. Doesn't take as long when it is warmed up. What causes this? The tranny has never once slipped gears and when i shift into any other gear it goes in almost instantly. I heard its normal for TH350's.

No idea what causes it, but anytime I've had a tranny going into gear slow it was getting ready to go west soon.

hum...is it only in reverse because thats the first gear you shift into to back out of a driveway or something...both my trucks have started this recently...from what i understand they are both probably gonna go out on me soon...sounds like same problem i have and someone told me its the torque converter going out :(

Well, the torque converter is no problem to replace. Pretty cheap too.
