Perhaps cleaning the throttle bore assembly would help, although my symptoms are usually the sticky gas pedal.

Really good instructions start here:

My 1995 bmw 740il wont shift into manual drive. im not sure what gear cars in but the trans isnt shifting. both of the cables to the throttle is broken i discovered could that be the problem and what


Service the transmission for the shifting issue. However going from auto to manual is an electrical switch. Car wont shift till car is at high enough rpm level.

Shifting high rpm


Follow cable/linkage from throttle body to transmission for kickdown and make sure it is well lubricated and moving freely at all points, especially at transmission . Patially seized or stuck will cause it to hang up like you are accelerating and trying to pass.

If the car type is manual transmission:
- Perform the clutch and pressure plate test.
PROCEDURE:
- Pull up the hand brake, shift the lever to 1st gear, rev up to 2000 rpm, release the clutch pedal at once.
- If the engine does not stall, replace the clutch, pressure plate, clutch bearing, regrind the fly wheel and pressure plate precisely.
- If the engine stalls, the clutch system is OK and do not need any clutch system repairing.
- If the clutch system is OK, check vacuum leaks through intake manifold, vacuum hoses, PCV valve and throttle control cable adjustment, MAP sensor and Throttle Plate Position sensor adjustment (9.8 percent or 0 degrees at TP sensor fully closed position).

If the car type is automatic transmission:
- Check the transmission control cable adjustment.
- Check vacuum leaks through intake manifold, vacuum hoses, PCV valve and throttle control cable adjustment, MAP sensor and Throttle Plate Position sensor adjustment (9.8 percent or 0 degrees at TP sensor fully closed position).
- Check the Automatic Transmission Fluid level in the transmission with the car on level floor, engine start, gear lever in P.
If the problem persists, contact a competent technician or service personnel.

Engine rpm's run too high in park and neutral


The idling problem sounds like an idle sensor or the trucks choke is stuck on. The manual shift could be a transmission sensor of sort. Not an expert with the F-150 but I would speculate the two problems are unrelated to one another

2002 sl2 rpms very slow to drop when shifting manual transmission


Okay, check the TPS you installed for proper meshing of the components. Disconnect the throttle cable and feel action of spring for binding. Check throttle plate for carbon and dirt buildup, clean.

Now some TPS units have a slot on one end. This can correct the jump in RPM. Just slide the unit either way while the engine is running and see if it speeds up or decreases the idle position. Then tighten the mounts. There are some other adjustments possible but check for a bad intake leak.

This can be done with the engine running and using a spray bottle of water. Mist the seams of the intake gasket and around vacuum lines. Any change in RPM or stalling will prove there is a leak and allow you to fix it.

It is kinda simple. A air leak is like opening the throttle to let more air in. The engine will run faster. Correct the leak and the idle should be reduced.

You could have varnish on the throttle valve in the transmission, causing it to stick open.

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.

The transmission is controlled by the Transmission Control Unit (TCU).

Throttle position, rpm, and speed are input parameters to the TCU. The TCU has a default set of shift patterns. These shift patterns change over time based on your specific vehicle setup and driving habbits.

The shift patterns are only slightly affected by driving habbits over many driving cycles. But, changing the relationship between the throttle position and the actual speed being reported by the speed sensor can have an immediate effect on shift patterns.

While your speedo may now be correct, the realtionship between rpm and thottle position has not been corrected. That would take a gear change in the differentials.

The TCU can be reset to an inital learn base line. When this is done, the TCU will instantly learn the dynamics of your setup.

Any shop with an advanced ODB scan tool can reset the the TCU. The dealer or a transmission shop would be preferable.

You really should change your differential gears as opposed to resetting the TCU
