Ford Tempo 1993 transmission problem


I want you to check something. there is 2 cables on the throttle body. 1 cable is to the gas pedal and the other is your a kick down cable . the kick down down in the front of the transmission if you look under the battery it does in the front of the transmission there. see if the kick down moves easy if you open the throttle body by hand. the problem with those transmission is it relis on the cable the shift the gears up . if you steped on the gas pedal that cable is to pull levers inside to up shift. there is not shift solenoids in those transmission. see many in my shop

Car was put in park and would not shift into any other gear, the shifter just slides very loosely into the other gears. It's as if there is no resistence to the shifter when you are trying to shift. I...


sounds more like a gear selector cable.
kick down cable would normally be connected to the throttle somewhere and would not affect the shift lever

I have to push the accelerator almost to the floor to get it to go in to passing gear. Motor feels weak and takes a long time to gain speed. car feels heave but the motor runs very smooth


Actually, this is normal. To 'kick down' the gear in the transmission, you should go WOT or wide open throttle.

4 cylinder motors seem to feel weaker than v-8's and are tuned to the transmission to rev higher to accomplish a certain acceleration point.

Good luck on driving.

CRANK THE CAR UP GEAR SELECTOR IN PARK, ONCE I MOVE IT TO REVERSE OR PARK IT CUTS OFF


This is the de-tent or kick down cable. Most commonly known as the down shift cable. This tells the transmission when the car needs it to down shift. If the cable does not do its job then the car stays in a higher gear and dies when put into gear. Hope this helps. Good luck.

When i put it into gear the car dies


Sounds like the kick down cable is not working properly. The kick down cable is the cable that tells the transmission to down shift depending on the throttle position. If the cable fails then when the car is turned off and restarted it is in too high of a gear to go and bogs the engine till it dies. Check this out and see if this doesn't get you back in business. Hope this helps. Good luck. cj2176.

Car idles, starts just fine but when I shift into gear it stalls.


It sounds like the kick down cable or "down shift cable" This is the cable on the transmission that shifts back down when the car slows. The transmission is most likely stuck in a higher gear and simply stalls the engine when shifted. replace this and i believe you will be back on the road. Hope this helps. Good luck.

My 1993 discovery v8 auto wont change into 4th gear


It sounds like you need to have your d-tent adjusted which is your kick down cable. I would take it by a local transmission shop and have them take a look. This would be the simplest, most accurate answer as to what is going on. If they say your transmission is shot, ask them what they believe the problem to be. Automatic transmissions are complicated. Hope this helps.

Overdrive factors


When the car is just cruising along at approx.50+ MPH push the O/D button. You should feel the gears change higher and if you have an RPM guage then it should drop as well to fewer RPMs. This would be normal driving conditions. O/D will not kick in until the last regular gear (3rd or 4th depending on model)  had been shifted into. O/D automatically kicks out when slowing down and the transmission shifts to a lower gear. Thus the O/D has no function at slower speeds/gears and does not need to be shifted ( on or off ) except in the very first example given here.
