Usually the kick down is used in the top gears to come out of overdrive, out of 4th and into 3rd. It is what you would use for passing or increasing RPM when pulling a load to gain speed. Since a governor was mentioned you are talking about an automatic aren't you or the governor for a throttle?

I have a 2002 chevy blazer 2 wheel drive. It has the 4l60e which was just replaced. It goes into reverse in drive and drive in 1st or 2nd its a floor shifter. How would I go about adjusting it? I cant seem...


I have seen adjusters on the console shifters for GM. You have to remove the handle and pull the bezel and boot off the shifter. Where the cable is mounted to the bracket/ floor, there is some adjustment. But there isn't enough to adjust for what your's is doing. This adjustment is for the shifter handle more than an adjustment for the range. The only thing I can think of is that the shifter arm on the transmission isn't in the right position, mounted to the transmission.. Any thing else wouldn't work.

MAKE SURE THE TRANS FLUID IS AT THE PROPER LEVEL. IF THIS IS GOOD, CHECK AND TRY TO ADJUST THE KICK DOWN CABLE. TWO CABLES TO TRANS, ONE IS THE LINK TO YOUR SHIFTER AND THE OTHER IS THE KICK DOWN CABLE.

More pronounced when cold. Shifts hard and winds out before shifting. Ist shift at approx. 35mph, with second shift at approx. 45mph, 3rd shift almost immediate after second. Is the point of shifting...


I would check your kick down leaver on the transmission. Make sure it is working freely. Sometimes the kick down leaver and the shifter leaver will bind together and cause the kick down leaver to get stuck. Sometimes when this happens you can feel hard spots in the shifter or hard spots in the gas pedel. or the gas pedel will be super easy to push. Block all the wheels front and back turn the key on. DO NOT START IT put it in drive then go under it and make sure the kick down leaver is moving freely. The reason it has to be in drive when you do this is because it may move freely in park but not when its in drive. The kick down leaver should move back and forth almost effortlessly. If it don't that is your problem. Get some WD40 lube it up and move it back and forth till it move back and forth easily. It would help to put some spray greese on it after its free to prevent it from happening again. If this is not you problem there is a band in the transmission that can cause this too. The tabs on the band where you make the adjustment on it will sometime bend apart over time causing the band to be out of adjustment. To fix this you will have to pull the pan and valve body bend the tabs back and readjust the band. Good Luck 4 thumbs up is appreciated if this helps.

How do i adjust the shifter linkage on my 1981 blazer.It shifts into drive but not 2nd or 3rd


I will try to help.
I would get someone to shift the shifter inside to the park position to see the direction underneath of the
shifter on the tranny. Then loosen the cable to the
shifter on the tranny move the shifter on the tranny to the same direction you seen toward park to the last position on the shift mechanism. That should be the park position. now put the shifter in the park position and tighten and/or reattach the cable. you should be good now. Hope this helps

I'm having trouble moving the shifter


If you're on an incline, that will affect it. Try setting the park brake prior to shifting to park. Also there is a cable/interlok safety system that prevents shifter movement out of park without the brake pedal being depressed, that may need adjustment. Also check under the hood see if the shift selector cable is routed close to the exhaust, it could be melting. And maybe the selector cable needs adjustment.
Good luck with that and let me know if there is anything more I can help with.

'99 wrangler has trouble shifting to 2nd gear - 4th gear occasionally slips to neutral


If you can see where the shifter goes through the floorboard, make sure the shifter is not hitting the floor.
There could be interfierence under the car also.
