    i went to the badlands today with 75-K5 and right at thre end, my truck would rev up then jerk into gear kinda. well, i was in 4lo and decided id better go back in order to check it out. well i got back and tried to shift to 2hi so i could drive home. i shifted it and it wouldnt even move. so we ended up flat towing my huge ass blazer home 40 miles with 75-K5's stock one. boy was that a sight. but n e wayz, what could it b?? it would rev up then jerk and go. now it wont move. hopefully it is just the tranny cuz i have an extra one. my other though was the chain in the x-case. plz help /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif i have a 79 with 350/th350/np203 . but on the plus side a competition rockcrawling heep caught fire /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    UPDATE: I took the tanny/x-case out today and turns out theres metal shavings in the bottom of the pan and thhe torque converter was full of metal. but, the fluid looked perfectly fine except for the shavings that were on the bottom of the pan. so i guess the new tranny will b goin in through the week and it will all hopefully be back in by next weekend. thanx for all the help

    Re: Help!!!!!!!!!! went to the badlands and shot either tranny or x-case....

    In my opinion, if it went at all, it can't be the Transfer case! Those either work or not! Chains can't be sort of broke! It's probably a shift pack in the transmission! What kind of transmission is it anyways???

    its a th350. it would kinda jerk then pop into gear. with all hope it is the tranny, cuz i have an extra one. but yet, i didnt see n e metal shavings in the oil. ill look tomorrow at it closer. o, the weird thing is that park still works. but i was steering completely towards the tranny. thanx alot

    PArk is just a servo on a claw that meshes with the gears! That could work and you could blown the whole thing! Like I said, if it's an auto, than I'm leaning towards the tranny!

    An easy thing to check is the tranny fluid. Is it brown and smell burnt ??? If so, you can probley guess it's the tranny.

    Before you yank the trans, drop the pan and make sure the filter did not come loose. I've seen that happen before. (Donna's Pontiac Sunbird) If all looks well then I'de say the trans is bad. Usually if you rev it up and it sorta pops into gear then it is low fluid or fluid not being sucked up into the trans.

    Doesn't sound good, could it be a torque converter problem? Or maybe an oil pump in the trannny?

    How'd the trip go otherwise? It got COLD, saturday. Can't wait till we get heat in that last room where were working on. Drop me a line if you need some help. There are a couple tool rental places that rent tranny jacks, make removing it alot easier.

    You get any pics while you were out?
    Later, J

    yea the trip went great. luckily it happened at the end of the day. i think while i was sitting in some water, it seeped in. so im haulin it to the gf's house and gonna fix it there. she lives in michigantown, so it isnt too far away.i have an extra tranny, so it wont cost me too much. ill prolly just buy a new torque converter and call it good. first im gonna see in the filter just came off. hey, n e thing is worth a try. ill post some pics as soon as i get all my stuff sorted out around here.
