    I have a TH350 trans after warming up on launch in the morning it catches
    normally. After I have driven it a while and say I stop at a stop sign or
    red light the launch off seems to slip or not catch right off what problems does anybody think I have??????????????????????

    have you checked your fluid level properly? Sounds like maybe not enough line pressure from running the pump low on fluid. Just a thought of many...

    YES I CHECKED THE FLUID LEVEL AND IT IS OK SO YOU ARE SAYING THE PUMP PRESSURE IS NOT HIGH ENOUGH (I INSTALLED A TRANSMISSION COOLER FROM THE LOCAL AUTO PART STORE ) DO YOU THINK I SHOULD CONNECT IT DIRECTLY TO THE RADIATOR ? :confused: (I DONT THINK THAT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE BUT I COULD TRY. ONE MORE THING IF THERE IS NOT ENOUGH TRANNY FLUID PUT IN THE TORQUE CONVERTOR WHEN INSALLING COULD THAT CAUSE THAT PROBLEM

    Your torque converter gets it's fluid from the transmission. Some guys install their torque converters with NO fluid at all. So if your tranny is full of fluid, no the TC fluid wouldnt be an issue.

    Sounds Like Its The Pressure I Like It Better To Be Directly Connected To The Radiator :D
