The automatic transmission skips the middle gears when shifting from 1st gear does this have a tv cable i can adjust and if so how
There is no TV cable, your transmission is electronic. Before guessing at transmission problems, check the fluid level (car
warmed up, engine running in Park on level ground) and have the PCM
scanned for trouble codes FIRST.
Secondly, put a line pressure gauge ( visit a
local trans shop) on the pressure test port and go for a drive to
verify proper line pressure. Base pressure at idle in P,N,OD should be
around 70psi and around 140psi in R. Max line pressure should be at
least 190psi at WOT in 1st or 2nd, 225psi is optimum. If base pressure
is low, trans or pump is worn out. If max pressure is low, check EPC
solenoid. If reverse is slow to engage, and line pressure does not come
up to at least 130psi in reverse, replace the boost valve with a
Transgo 0.490" boost valve (easy fix in pan).
1-2 shift does not happen at WOT until you let off the gas: Best case:
try replacing the TPS. Middle case: leak in the 2nd gear apply circuit
(servo assembly or 1-2 accumulator). Doublecheck by using the pressure
gauge and watch for a big drop when the PCM commands 2nd gear. Worst
case: poor line pressure rise.
1-2 Shift shudder at WOT; delayed or abnormal 1-2 shift; There's a problem ONLY on the 1-2 shift:
1-2 accumulator piston cracked or stuck cocked in the bore. Check the
yellow spring inside the accum housing for breakage. Also, if the
accumulator housing walls are scored, the housing must be replaced.
Easy fix in the pan.
1-2 shift is delayed and harsh, may not shift into OD: Check TPS for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If not, replace.
Soft shifting, gradual performance degradation: Poor line
pressure rise due to leaking boost valve, clogged EPC filter screen,
failing EPC solenoid, or worst case: leaky seals throughout. Transgo
HD2-C kit fixes first two without removing trans. Seal restorer may fix
last problem, but probably R&R. Also try a transmission flush with
BG brand products (Firestone stocks it).
1-2 or 2-3 shift is slow/soft above part throttle: Trans is on its way out. R&R.
Good luck and hope it's a simple TPS probelm.
