Question about 1996 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

700R transmission shifting late... not the TV cable

I think the valve itself might be stuck but i'm new to the whole "mechanic" thing so i don't know if i'd be able to fix it even if that were the problem.... PLEASE HELP!!

As long as your sure the TV cable is adjusted properly, then I would suspect you are correct in that the valve is sticking. You could try some of the mystery oil or trans clean fluids that you by at the parts stores.

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 />

I have a 1995 toyota 4 runner and the speedometer just stopped working,what should i look for to fix this problem.Thanks Randy.


Your 1995 Toyota 4runner has a mechanical speedometer cable---it also has a speed sensor in the speedometer head. The engine control module depends on the speed sensor signal, along with other inputs to determine when to shift the transmission, without this signal the transmission cannot shift correctly and can be damaged internally by shifting too early or too late
Most often a new cable will remedy the problem, but don't wait to long to repair it. Good luck, i hope this helps.

CODE P0755 ON TOYOTA CAMRY DX


DTC P0755 - Shift solenoid valve B
This warning is turned ON or OFF by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the park/neutral position (PNP) switch, vehicle speed and Engine Control Module (ECM) (throttle opening). Gears will then be shifted to the optimum position.

The P0755 code is detected when TCM detects an improper voltage drop when it tries to operate the solenoid valve.

Symptoms:
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Transmission will not shift gears.

Possible causes:
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid B valve
- Shift solenoid B valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid B valve circuit is open or shorted

When the a transmission solenoid is malfunction, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

Additional test details could find in this link about Repair/05/2011ne09/cip0755 (pdf)

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

1990 gmc sierra 1500 4x4 shifts late through all gears


Check the TV cable to the transmission that is hooked to the throttle body. Sounds like it needs adjusted or hooked back up. Sometimes they also stick in the transmission, Try adjusting it first. You need to make it longer to lower the shift points. If this doesn't work let me know. It is likely stuck in the transmission and there is a trick to getting it unstuck.

Why the transmission takes long to change is it the filter


Could be. Also, you maybe due a filter and fluid change.

no.. do not replace first find out if the tranny cooler is plugged witch is typacal in your car if it shifts its good for now unplug the cooler then use tranny valve conditoner..this fluid will un stick the internal valves...flush the tranny cooler and add conditioner

Transmission wont shift


check the kickdown/throttle valve cable. It may be bound up and stuck in the maximum position giving you extremely late shifts.
