I have a turbo 350 and I can no longer shift into second manually. I now have to wait for the engine to almost redline for it to shift(on its own). I need some help. Thank you.

Have you checked the fluid? If the fluid is okay, then check the governer in the side of the trans.

could also check to see if your vacuum line (?) to see if it has been bumped off. I had that problem before and it turned out that there was a little hose loose on the front of the trans. After I pushed it back on there, no problems anymore.

after governor, (remove and clean)They tend to get varnished up and stick, try a filter kit, theyre cheap and come with the gasket, and hope for the best.
Good luck
