Do I have a vacuum leak?

  1. Now that I've got my '66 running, when I hit the gas the car barely goes. I was flooring it and going like 15 mph. Basically it seemed like it wasn't shifting into second gear. What could be causing this? A vacuum leak maybe? It's a 289 w/ a c4. This was never a problem before I let it sit for 8 months. I added some tranny sealer to see if that would help but no luck. Thanks.

  2. Check the trans fluid level, sounds like it's low.

  3. I did that already. It was low after we got it started but I filled it up.
     
  4. Did you run it thru the gear pattern then recheck the fluid level?
    they will sometimes need more fluid after it has pumped thru the system.

  5. No I didn't recheck the level I'll do that once these 20+ inches of snow melts. :D Thanks.
