93 ford tempo, changed neutral safety switch. worried i may have broken the kickdown lever, reattached all the linkage to it and now the transmission won't shift into 2nd gear until about 35mp


What about the rest of the shift points. 2 to 3 and 3 to 4? If the others are normal than the problem is with the 1-2 internals and not the T-V linkage.
It seems the transmission Is acting as if the throttle is wide open; for the 1-2 shift, therefore there is something in the linkage is broken or out of adjustment since your work. The last step before opening up the transmission to replace the TV linkage is to make sure the external TV cable linkage is set up right, and after is verified, if you are still seeing WOT upshift points that function of the internal to external kick down parts will need to be repaired. Sorry.

If you know a good local independent transmission specialist you might see him and get some advice.

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 />

Kickdown does not always come in. Full on the gas results in a relaxed speeding up of the car instead of the heavily smoking burst of power.


Check the accelerator linkage for binding, as well as the kickdown cable (if so equipped, I don't think yours has one). After that, the next likely culprit is the throttle position sensor (TPS).

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.

How can a kickdown cable be hooked up wrong if its connected to the tranny and the throttle body on a 1992 crown victoria


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

89 Cherokee kickdown not working


There should be an adjustment on the cable from the throttle body to the trans. If adjustment can be made, shorten it in small increments, unless you find it detached or broken.
