IS THE KICKDOWN CABLE SUPPOSED TO MOVE FREELY AND IF SO HOW FAR


Hi Earl, The kick down cable is required to move very freely and operate the the valve in the auto box. I suggest replacing it and then adjusting to operate at the required travel. Regards John

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.

1986 Fiero: my e brake on my 85 fiero is stuck and i need it t...


It probably got stuck from lack of use/lubrication. But if your lever is also stuck up it could be a function of the actual lever action. I'm assuming you tried pushing the button in to release the lever?

Step 1) Get a haynes manual if you own a fiero, VERY valuable tool

Step 2) Check the physical action of the lever, is the lever not releasing down because of the lever itself? --> frozen/rusted? something physically blocking it on the floor of the car? Or is it not releasing due to the cable tension?

It's been awhile since I looked at it, but there should be a way to take the cover off of the lever to see the cable come into the shaft from underneath the car. Follow this cable to the rear of the car where it goes to the driver side rear brake caliper, then across the car to the passenger side caliper. You can adjust the tension for the cable using the nuts on the cable.


Also, there is a spring on each caliper that is supposed to put tension on the cable when pulled, so when released the cable returns to driving position and thus releases the brakes. Are these springs missing?

Are the brakes engaged because of the e-brake being stuck?

If you are in a pinch and need to use your car and can't because the brakes are on due to a stuck e-brake, it's not smart and can be illegal in your state, but you could just cut the e-brake cable. Should be pretty easy to do where it meets the lever on the inside of the car.


Let me know if you need more help

Adjust kickdown cable


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