Please fill out the following to ask a question. MAKE: Chevrolet MODEL:Caprice YEAR:1977 MILES:180000 ENGINE:350 DESCRIBE ISSUE.... Hey guys: I have a non-lockup 200 metric trans in my '77 Caprice coupe, maybe one of the few still being used. Anyway, the thing is acting up and I'm curious whether it could be caused by something accessible from the outside, or it is more serious than that. Here's what's happening: Cold or hot, there is a delayed, soft engagement into Drive. Reverse is prompt and has firm engagement. When driving away in Drive, there is pronounced clutch slippage/shudder with application of the throttle...until the engine rpms rise, at which point the clutches grab and there is no more slippage. If the rpms drop below 1500 or so at the point the shift to 2nd is about to occur, 2nd will also slip briefly. However, if I am on the gas, no slippage. Shifts are on time and feel good. I will also mention that shifting to manual 2nd or low mostly mitigates the slippage, but it will slip briefly until the rms (pressure) builds. So, here's something a little different. This trans appears to be damaged but not "burned up" . Any ideas what could be going on? Thanks.
