If your transmission doesnt shift until 35 mph then check your vaccum hose on your transmission.... i had the same prob. and that is what it was because it is a vaccum shift tranny and without the vaccum then it will shift at really high rpms.

Time for a new Tranny or a rebuilt. This is something that a Tranny shop needs to look at they have specialized equipment. First and reverse are usually the same gear except reverse direction. At least that has been my experience. It could just be shift solenoids are bad or even speed sensor. Have a good tranny shop check this out. Hope this helps

How do you take the transmission off a 350 Chevy?

It depends if it is automatic or manual, and if it is in the car or out of the car. An automatic transmission is attach to the engine only by bolts around the "bell housing" and bolts attaching flexplate to the torque converter. First remove bolts from the flexplate to the torque converter. You can do this by removing the "inspection plate" which is behind the engine under the front of the tranny. It should have 6-8 bolts. Once the plate is removed, you will see the flex plate with gear teeth around it, and the round donut-looking torque converter. The flexplate stays on the engine and the torque converter stays with the tranny. Undo each bolt attaching the two, there should be 4. You will need to turn the engine to expose each bolt in the inspection area so you can remove it. do this by hand or by "bumping" your starter, be sure to be safe! Once the torque converter and flexplate are seperate, the only thing keeping the tranny to the engine are the bell-housing bolts. Be careful! If you tranny is in the car, these same bolts are the only thing holding the tranny up in the air!!! If the trans is in the car, it must be safely supported by a trans jack. undo the belhousing bolts and the tranny should seperate. if it is stillin the car, you will have had to remove the drive shaft first as well as all the associated cables and connections. Be safe!
