Question about 1986 Cadillac Eldorado
Had a garage install a new distributor cap and rotor now th Caddy over revs before shifting. It hangs up in low and second but if I lift my foot it sometimes will shift righ then. Whats wrong? Changing a cap and rotor should'nt have anything to do with shifting should it?
There is a "throttle valve" cable located on the throttle linkage of the carburetor that may have been reset or left unhooked when you had it serviced. Check to make sure it is connected to the throttle link.
Also behind the carburetor there is a vacuum line connected to the intake manifold that goes to the transmission vacuum modulator, they may have knocked it loose or the hose cracked.
Check it out and let me know.
