Question about 1986 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
Ran it for a short time with no t.v.cable could its have damaged anything
it shifts great until it get to 3rd or 4th gear. engine is a 2.8 lt. v6
Yes, it can damage the transmission. The throttle valve cable controls a modulated pressure - according to throttle opening. A missing or improperly adjusted tv cable results in too low pressure. You didn't state clearly if cable has been installed now. Be sure to install and then make proper adjustment. It should be a self-adjusting cable but they most always need a bit of tweeking as the self-adjust is imo a poor design. Too little space here but you can probably google the adjustment proceedure. Hopefully it wasn't damaged and you'll be OK with proper adjustment. Good luck.
