What do you mean by the kick down cable? Are you having trouble with the transmission during shifting? If that is the case, you may be having trouble with the clutch. The gears might be having trouble transitioning.

How do i replace transmission modulator valve on a 1991 gmc sierra 1500 4.3


UNLESS you have a TH400 3 speed HD automatic transmission, which I HIGHLY doubt being it's a 1500 with a 4.3, you won't have a vacuum modulator. UNLESS someone swapped an older TH350 or TH400 transmission into the truck.

Instead you'll have what called a TV cable, or throttled valve cable.

This cable should be located on the passenger side of the transmission and is routed up to the side of the throttle body and hooked up like the old "kick down" cables.

The TV cable isn't simply a "kick down" cable, even though it does act like one, it also adjusts the pressure for the transmission to shift at different throttle positions. Much like the old vacuum modulators did.

Hope this helps.

2000 sable- can't shift out of park. shifter glides and needle on dash moves there's no gears shifting. is the transmission blown?


Not likely a blown transmission. More of a shifter cable issue. There is an adjustment nut on the ****** end. It could be loose or missing. If the nut is fine you have a broken cable.

The 5r55e automatic transmission would only go in 2 gear. I then replaced the valve body, all 6 solenoids, internal wiring harness, and position Switch (DTR Solenoid) - The truck drives good and shifts...


My guess is the cable needs adjustment on the shifter.. seems to have slipped maybe a loosened hold down bolt..these have to be precise, good luck!!!

My 1991 ford Bronco will not automactically kick down I have manually shift down


being a 91 i am guessing its a EAOD transmission, it is also computer controlled. it could be the adjustment on for the Valve body cable aka kickdown cable needs adjusted or could also be a problem with the computer.

1997 mercury sable won't shift into overdrive. We think we may need to replace the transmission. If so, what vehicle transmissions will work in a sable?


first of all, check the kickdown cable to transmission. it may be out of adjustment. or just bad.if its the cable out of adjustment, it is sure cheaper then a tranny.
