I have a 1988 Corvette with a 700R4, not wanting to shift from 1st. to 2nd. unless I leave my foot off the gas for it to shift. Contact

Transmissions have "synchros" that adjust the speed when shifting from one gear to the next, because the engine's RPMs, while correct for, say, 1st gear, are too high to shift to 2nd gear.

If you're really careful, and an expert driver, you can shift a manual transmission from one gear to the next without using the clutch at all.

However, you seem to have a transmission problem with the 1-2 synchros.

91 accord shifts hard

You have transmission issues, the first thing to do is have the fluid changed in the transmission to see if that improves the hard shifting and then go from there.

Just bought a 1985 300zx ,what is the power on/off button for by the shifter

It is for shift timing for the transmission.

Off, or ECON(omy) on some models is faster shifting, to get you into a higher gear sooner, returning (hopefully) better gas mileage.

Power, or PWR on some models, is delayed shifting, holds the gears for longer amount of time to provide more acceleration per gear before shifting.

It is helpful for towing and making the car feel a little more sporty.
