    Whenever I shift into reverse it takes about 2 seconds before it kicks in. Doesn't take as long when it is warmed up. What causes this? The tranny has never once slipped gears and when i shift into any other gear it goes in almost instantly. I heard its normal for TH350's.

    No idea what causes it, but anytime I've had a tranny going into gear slow it was getting ready to go west soon.

    Well, the torque converter is no problem to replace. Pretty cheap too.
