Tranny Slipping?

1979 Olds Cutlass 67000 miles
350 Trans. rebuild with 3000 miles

When I back out of my driveway (downhill) and then stop and shift to drive, the car doesn't go. There is no tranny noise just engine noise. I usually shift to park or neutral and back to drive and it goes. There is no indication of slippage, and once it goes it's ok. It only seems to do this the first start of the day. I have a rebuilt Accurate Tranny with about 3,000 miles. Fluid level is ok, local mechanic dropped the pan and said everything looks ok.

Any ideas on what the problem could be?

Thanks,

Sherm

Tranny

I would first check the shifter cable / linkage. It may be worn or out of adjustment so tranny isn't going all the way into drive. Also, worn motor or transmission mounts can have the same effect. Especially since you noted (Downhill) this could be a worn mount pulling the linkage out of alignment as you back down and out of your driveway.
