Re: Disaster strikes; TH350 is on strike! HELP!
did you fill the torque convertor back up before putting it back in?
did it click all the way down and engage the front pump?
was there a small gap between the flywheel and convertor before you bolted them back together? if not you didn't engage the front pump.
automatic trannies will act funny if they are even a pint low on fliud, it sounds like you're a couple of quarts low. add fluid slowly and recheck by engaging all gears slowly, with your foot on the brake, to let the pistons and convertor fill up and then recheck fluid level.
after you get it full again drive it, then let it sit overnight to get the air bubbles out of the fluid and recheck the fluid level again in the morning.
