Need help Adjusting automatic shifting cables on 2010 cobalt ls

Put the Trans in park then adjust the cable so the shifter is in park. Then shift to nuetral and make sure the Trans is also in nuetral. Adjust as necessary. Using park and nuetral as alignment points should result in the shift linkage being in the correct position for all gears.

Mileage dropped 5 miles per gallon

Go to a site like the or and look up your brand of tire. Look for the Rolling Resistance specs and compare your new tires to the old tires.

Sometimes you get "bargain" tires which are not the optional upgrades. These bargains may be undersize or smaller than your optional originals.
There are differences in width, but more important is the sidewall series.

A 70 series is larger than a 65 or 60 series. Your optional tire could have been a 70 and using a 65 will be a smaller tire if the width is the same.

Tire composition and material reflect in the rolling resistance.

Under inflation-many tire stores use less air to give the tire a better ride. Check your pressure, the label on the doorjam and raise the pressure,
usually to under 3 or 4 lbs the stated maximum on the tire.

Check air filter and any hose fittings that may have been disturbed by the oil change. Temperature, gasoline, and driving habits can affect gas mileage. Sometimes a locking gas cap helps too.

Please rate my info.

How much air should i put in my chevy equinox 2005 tires?

Look at the side of the tire itself, tire pressure is right there. Open the door, look down and see the sticker, the info is right there along with the size of the tires when you need to buy them. Open the owners manual, again the information is right there.

Tires and rims

Check inside the driver door post for the factory tire size for your truck. It's recommended that your tire size not vary more than 3% of original, due to handling characteristics, and car/truck performance. Keep in mind that putting huge tires on can throw off your speedometer reading, so big tires having fewer revolutions will show a lower speed than you are actually traveling-so watch out for radar traps! Our computer controlled engines are fed info constantly to adjust fuel/air ratio, rpms, etc, and vastly different tire sizes can affect those adjustments and calculations. So, yes, I agree, bigger tires would look much better, but don't go too big. For a formula to estimate tire size and lots of info and advice, go to tirerack website.

Wont shift to overdrive on hwy unless I let off the gas alot

I'm a big chevy fan and the reason it wont shift is because of the big tires.What happens when you put big tires on it and still have the same gear ratio the tires slow down the speed alot.There for making the trans seem its still going slower.The only real adjustments you can do here are first adjust the kick down cable if it has one,Next would be change the gear ratio to compinsate for the big tires.But if you have the elctronic trans theres really nothing you can do to adjust the kick down.But if it does this cable controls how the truck shifts on where the gas pedal is.To adjust the kick down cable you need to look at the cables that go up to the throttle likage.the cable thats on the bottom is the one you need.Next behind the bracket that holds the cable is a metal tab its actually in the cable.Push that tab in and the center part of the cable which looks like a con push that all the way in release the tab.Next jump in the truck and press the gas pedal to the floor now its adjusted.Thats all you can do..Hope this helps you and have a great day..

I have a 96 grand cherokee that wont pull out in first gear

Have codes checked . My first guess would be that the shift control module is not working properly, speed sensor could be out of range, and giving module incorrect info, but that's why there are tests.
