On the trottle body there is the trottle valve cable or TVC. This is what regulates the pressure in the transmission and determines how hard and when to shift. If you adjust this by moving the throttle cable forward towards the headlights it will result in an earlier smoother shift.

91 pontiac grand prix se key stuck in ignition


91 Grand Prix SE: If you can turn car off with the key, but can't get the key out - first thing you should check is to see if the button on the shifter is fully releasing (the button on the shift handle you have to push to shift out of Park).

If all gears are shifting hard, may have a code p1811 set-trans adapt long shift. When this code sets it commands full line pressure causing hard shifts. Usually the pressure control solenoid is at fault. You need to have it scanned for codes.

Not an intrigue, sorry. run over anything lately? A pinched cooler line could cause this. Or maybe just an old, gummy transmission.
