Ok a month or so back when I hit third gear and something went wrong. It would not pull. I coasted to a stop. The car would only move if I revved it to 5000rpm. I had to get it out of the road so I ran it at 5000rpm for 1/1oth of a mile to get it off the road then had it towed home.

I pulled the trans and found the converter to be making alot of noise and was told it was bad. I sent it back to jegs. While I had the trans out I tore it down and made sure the pump gears were ok. I also traded the output shaft for one with fewer speedo teeth.

I got it put back together and started it up and have 9qts fluid in it. Its on jackstands. 1st and reverse will only move if I rev it up a bit. 2nd and drive moves the tires at idle.

Is the trans fried? Did I not adjust the low reverse band right? Any help appreciated.

Thanks
