SOURCE: adjust kickdown cable

If it is an overdrive, there isn't a kickdown cable. I would suspect something wrong with the engines output.

SOURCE: How can a kickdown cable be hooked up wrong if its

More likely it is not adjusted properly Kickdown cables are used to control fluid flow in the transmission so they shift correctly If adjusted to tight or to loose it will cause the transmission to not change gears properly or not at all

just drop the transmission pan to drain it and the filter is right there in the valve body,DON'T mess the band adjustment,they are only to stop the planetary gears so you can go into reverse,there is no such thing as adjusting bands! that went out with the fifties!

Tip

Throttle Valve Cable Ajustment on a 2nd Gen Dodge Ram


<b> <p>Before you begin:<br /></b> <p>This tip is to show second generation Dodge Ram truck owners with the automatic transmission how to properly adjust the shift points of their transmission. These pictures are from my 1999 Ram 1500<br /> <p>with the 5.9 liter V-8 engine. When I bought my truck, I quickly decided I didn't like the factory set shift points. It shifted too soon under light and medium throttle...and passing gear/kickdown required a lot of gas pedal to achieve. My desire was to have the 1-2 shift and the 2-3 shift occur at a higher road speed/<br /> <p>engine rpm and to have a more sensitive kickdown. In my case, this was accomplished by adjusting the transmission throttle pressure cable only 1/4" (0.25 inches). What is the throttle pressure cable? Between the throttle linkage and the driver's side of the transmission there is a cable that causes a valve inside the transmission to move in relation to throttle position (gas pedal position). This cable is also referred to as the Throttle Valve (T.V.) cable.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>What does it do? The T.V. cable moves the throttle valve in the transmission.....which in turn controls THREE things: <br /> <p> <br /> <p>1) the transmission line pressure and <br /> <p>2) the transmission shift timing and<br /> <p>3) the transmission kickdown (or passing gear). Many people mistakenly believe it only performs function number three.<br /><b> <p> <br /> <p>Very important:<br /></b> <p> <br /> <p>l More throttle opening = HIGHER line pressure and LATER, FIRMER shifts.<br /> <p>l Less throttle opening = LOWER line pressure and EARLIER, SOFTER shifts.<br /> <p>l WOT (Wide Open Throttle) = MAXIMUM line pressure and FIRM shifts at the engine <b>redline</b>.<br /> <p> <br /> <br /> Even though this walkthrough is for 2nd gen Ram's, most cars and trucks with automatic transmissions will have similar T.V.C. setup and adjustment.<br /> <br /> <br /> This picture shows the location of the throttle pressure cable adjustment<br /> <p> <br /> <img src="kacomstock.png" /> <br /> <br /> Here's a close up of the bracket and adjustment mechanism<br /> <br /> <img src="kacomstock.jpg" /> <br /> <p>Here's what the locking clip actually looks like:<br /><b> <p> <br /> <p>When removing this clip, be aware that it is plastic and be careful that you don't break the tabs off when prying on them.<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /></b> <br /> <img src="kacomstock_0.png" /> <br /> <br /> Here is a close up of the T.V. cable and locking teeth.<br /> <br /> <br /> <img src="kacomstock_1.png" /> <br /> <br /> <p>For LATER, FIRMER shifts, slide the cable housing further OUT of (rearward) the locking mechanism. Attempting to make the shifts too late and firm will result in undesirably harsh shifts under light throttle.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>For EARLIER, SOFTER shifts, slide the cable housing further INTO (forward) the locking mechanism. Attempting to make the shifts too early will result in excessive transmission slippage during shifts, especially at medium and heavy throttle.<br /><b> <p> <br /> <p>WARNING: Going too far in either direction will cause trouble!!<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> </b><img src="kacomstock_2.png" /> <br /> <p>BEFORE you begin, make note of the cable position so you have that as the stock reference point.<br /><b> <p> <br /> <p>Make your adjustments in small increments of about 1/8" (0.125")<br /></b> <p> <br /> <p>At a fixed throttle position...say 1/4 throttle....every 1/8" of cable adjustment will change the shift points by a few miles per hour. At a greater throttle opening...say 3/4 throttle... that same 1/8" of cable adjustment will make more of a difference.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>When you're finished adjusting, replace the locking clip and road test it. Pay close attention to the light and medium throttle shift firmness and timing.<br />

Cable on top of engine broke on throttle what does it do


Replace the cable with one from your local auto parts store or dealer.
It may be for cruise control if your cruise control no longer works.
Or, it may be for the accelerator pedal.

Around 70 mph the tranny keeps going form one gear


You need to back off the transmission kickdown cable. It is located just beside your throttle cable near the air intake duct. You may have to remove the black plastic cover to gain access. Just back of the adjusting nuts about one quarter inch at a time until it operates correctly and lock them down at that point. Thank you, Dana

I have a 92 chevy k/2500 4x4 350 eng.w/tbi and the transmission is a turbo 400.i have no passing gear.what can i do to get kickdown.also i get 2 stories on what tranny came in the truck orig.i have a 4 pin...


there should be a kick down cable coming from the tranny to the tbi, this is probale out of adjustment, or the tranny is having issues, this can be fixed by losing the cable. now take the throttle and open it wide open the cable should click. i would think that this truck should have the 700r4 tranny
