just started recently. i noticed a slight tick in the transmission (th350) and didn't think anything of it. then it started to kick out of gear and raise in rpms to shift into the next gear. ive replaced the fluid and filter. didn't help at all. its got a whine to it now like a low power steering pump but ive checked that too and its working just fine. im looking for anything that will help bc i can't be with out my truck. oh and ive checked my flywheel for the tick and theres nothing wrong with it.

TH350s do fail.

most transmission shops keep several already built to just exchange.  takes them 45 minutes to an hour if its a 2 wheel drive if they have a great R&R guy.

you can just buy an exchange unit, a converter, proper kick down cable, dipstick tube oring. and swap it in a few hours and save cash.

i have seen cheep exchange units for 350 plus a converter for 50 ...   can i say CHEEP!!! but thats los angeles pricing


be sure to measure tail housing length. 6, 9, 12 inches and speedo gear housing size.

you also want to swap out your speedo gear on the tail shaft..

i don't have that kinda money right now or i would of already done that. but about the only thing i haven't checked is the modulator. one more thing is that it acts like it doesn't have enough fluid when its actually full.

there are 3 different filters. i like to us the odd shaped dacron filter as it has more filter area.

fluid level checked with engine running on level ground in park.

check dipstick . full level is just above pan gasket with engine running.. get an idea of the depth of the pan..  use a straightened coat hanger

Whines in an automatic transmission is related to the front pump. The 350's are easy to rebuild! They have many detailed books on them...
