There is a linkage on the Loadflight A-500 transmission that travels from the throttle linkage to a lever on the transmission. Proper adjustment of this linkage controls the shift schedule of the transmission with respect to engine throttle position. This would be the most likely place to start after ensuring that your fluid level is correct.

    I will try looking at adjustment on linkage. I remember having a problem like that when I put a 440 motor and 727 transmission in a 64 Savoy. It took some adjusting on it to get it to shift right.

Check the fluid levels. You may have a towing/hauling button engaged as well. I'd start by looking at the more obvious problems.

Then, I'd take a deeper look into the transmission. Maybe a fluid change, possibly a power valve problem. Other problems of the such.

What is wrong with my 2000 chevy blazer ; it is a 4wd automatic an i locked it in 4wd low to pull my boat out of the water and can not get it to shift back i to 2wd?


You shouldn't have to use 4wd to tow a boat out of the water. Does your truck have a 2wd button or just the 4high and 4low button? If you have a 2wd button, put tranny in neutral and then hit the 2wd button. If you just have the 4high and 4low button, put the tranny into neutral then press the 4high button twice (Once to get back into 4high, then again to get out of 4high and back to 2wd).

I have a 1998 chevy k2500 pickup with a 5.7L V8. The problem i am having is with the 4wd. it has a 3 button electronic shift selector. when pressing the 4wd low button it will shift the motor and the front...


First, you do not need 4 low unless you're stuck out in the bush somewhere. Secondly, when you shift from 2 high to 4 high, it goes in immediately. To access 4 low, the tranny shifter must first be put into neutral, wait five seconds, then shift into 4 low. To shift out of 4 low back to 4 high, you must shift into neutral for 5 seconds again. They both flash at the same time because you have not shifted into neutral gear with the transmission.

High idol all the time& tranny problems


Check for vacuum leaks on the high idol. You have a speed sensor or wiring issue with the tranny. Will need to be checked somewhere with a computer to know for sure on the tranny.

78' k5 blazer wont shift into 2wd


You have to stop the truck and put it in natural. It should go into 2 wheel drive then. If you have lock outs make sure that they are unlocked.

Can't transfer to 4L or neutral mode


Transfer cases can be quirky. I've got a 91 Wrangler, an 86 Cherokee and a 75 Blazer. When I go from 2WD to 4WD, they each have their own personality.

There are a number of things I've learned to persuade a stubborn xfer case to shift.

Try mixing these :
  • Engine running, vehicle not moving
  • Engine off, Shift Xfer case, Restart
  • Tranny in neutral
  • Shift Xfer case 'N', Tranny in gear, Tranny in neutral, Xfer case to 4HI or 4LOW (as long as you feel it register), Tranny in gear, try to move
  • Shift Tranny to Reverse, roll a few yards
  • Lock/Unlock the Hubs
To get back to 2WD:
  • Drive for a few feet in a straight line
  • Unlock the hubs
  • Tranny Neutral
  • Shift xfer case
Let me know how it turns out.
