I have a '79 Camaro with a TH350 Auto box.
The car was standing for approx 2.5 years before I got it. Everything is fine except I have no gears when cold!
When checking trans fluid when cold, its right up the dipstick. But when hot it doesn't even register.
Any help would be greatly appreiciated.

You are supposed to check the fluid when it's hot.

With everything operating up to temperature, and the engine running, put the car in park, then go through each position, R,N,D,2,1, and then back to neutral. Make sure the car is blocked, or you have a good parking brake. Then get out, and check the fluid. Fill it to full line if needed.

Sounds to me like you have no transmission fluid. Add a quart or two and find out where it's leaking from and fix it. Don't use any of those chemicals that are used to seal leaks. I think they do more damage then help.

I didn't read anything funny. One person needed advise and two others gave it.
