what are the tell-tale signs of a plugged trans line??

my 85 was running fine one day and when i went to leave it would bang into gear and kill the engine. its like starting in 3rd gear and dumping the clutch. told it could be the converter vavle body or even the front pump. when i dropped the pan it run ok till i got the fluid back up to level. dont want to have the tranny rebuilt(904 lockup) if its something simple. i have 727 if i can ever go get it. but will have to get a shaft cut.

Sounds like your lockup torque convertor may be staying engaged when it shouldnt? Did this happen after you removed the pan?

it happened a week before. went to work drove like it always did get off work and started jerking.

2 weeks prior i went to oklahoma and coming back got a little stupid by going around 100 mph just to see what it would do.

think i may have knocked something loose and stuck in the converter? there was some shavings in the pan but i think it was from the tranny jerking around.
