is there a vaccum hose on the tranny or is there a missing hose where there should be one?
Honestly, I am almost positive it is your torque converter clutch circuit. This is the shifting mechanism for automatic trannys

First, carefully disconnect the cable end from the shift arm on the transmission (pry gently with a screw driver between the arm and the cable), then take out the staple looking thing from the cable. Then squeeze the tabs on the side of the cable and slide it towards the rear of the vehicle. Take out the two bolts that hold the bracket on.

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.

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

Cable on top of engine broke on throttle what does it do

Replace the cable with one from your local auto parts store or dealer.
It may be for cruise control if your cruise control no longer works.
Or, it may be for the accelerator pedal.

89 chevy 2500 silverado

that was old school , vehicles with the turbo 400 transmission are equipped with an ECM controlled downshift system , when vehicle is at speeds below 70 mph a forced (detent) downshift is possible by fully depressing the accelerator ,when the ECM detects a drop in manifold vacuum (high map sensor reading) the downshift control relay is energized by the ECM , the relay detects battery voltage to the detent solenoid in the transmission to open open an oriface to force the transmission to downshift ..... if yours is not working i would first check the downshift relay , under hood , picture is so bad i can't tell , looks like on the firewall more to the passenger side , next to fuel pump relay , if it needs more diag than that maybe you should get an estimate for repair from a trans shop or such , hope ya fix it , cheers .

Transmission wont shift

check the kickdown/throttle valve cable. It may be bound up and stuck in the maximum position giving you extremely late shifts.

There ISN"T any modulators or vac lines on any Chrysler automatics
