Most cars with automatic transmissions have a kick down switch that is sometimes mounted on the transmission but activated by the throttle linkage. A good mechanic should be able to correct this quite easily.

Automatic transmission shifts down on its own


the kick down cable must have slack, at idle.
if not its bad. (end to end, something is wrong with it)
this cable is for passing gear.
you jam the throttle and the tranny then down shifts.
called, kickdown, detent and TV cable.
if the cable rusts it can in fact rust , pulled. and now in passing gear full time. or it can stick driving do to rust.
what i do is make sure the trans, end of cable the detent rod is not sticking, if that is ok, , get a new cable.

Protege automatic transmission wont downshift to pass


Isn't the kickdown vacuum operated on older cars? If so, would poor engine vacuum or leak therein cause the tranny not to downshift?

I would check out your kickdown band inside your transmission. You can check it by removing the pan and pulling down the valve body. Once you get the valve body down you can see the kickdown band it is the band closest to the front. Check the tabs where the band adjuster is. The tabs on the band itself can get bent causing the band to be way out of adjustment which will cause shifting problems like you are having. Sometimes you can just bend the tabs back and reset the adjustment on the band. If its too bad though you will have to pull the transmission and change the band. But before you do all this check to make sure your kickdown lever and cable are working properly. Sometimes if it is binding on your shift leaver your shifter might move hard or your gas pedel can feel super easy to push or hard to push. good luck hope this helps

Tacoma runs through all the gears but won't shift into overdrive


Check the bracket where your throttle cable is connected to the engine. There should be 2 cables. One of them is the throttle cable, the other is what I call the "kickdown cable" which tells your shift computer when you punch it and tells it to down shift. It can also affect the shifting ability. It is possible that cable has come off or so loose its not functioning properly. Of course it is also possible that your bands are ate up and you no longer have overdrive anymore. Try manually shifting from drive to overdrive see if that helps.

Bizarre shifting pattern 1984 Mercedes 300D automatic


Hello, The adjust of your t/v cable, not kickdown cable, and the operation of the vacuum controller at the rear of injection pump, and the modulator, is critical for this car to get a good shift.
Put you cable back on, adjust it so that when you have wide open throttle, the cable does not have any slack. Check the black vacuum line by the oil filter housing that goes to the modulator to see if it has vacuum. It should have about 10-15" vacuum and as you increase engine speed it should drop. If you get close to this, the trans should shift ok. If you cannot get vacuum at the modulator line, you need to ck vacuum supply, valve at rear of injection pump, hose routing, etc.
If the B2 piston failed, it would be difficult to move car or slip badly. Also, take into mind that at the bottom of your accelerator pedal stroke is a kickdown switch.
If you accomplish what I instructed, you will probably get a decent shift.
If you find this information to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating.
Thanks, Gator241
