TV cable

Alright, so I've got this shifting problem from 1-2 gears. It's feels like it shifts to second and then back to first and then back to second. The weird thing about it is when I adjust my kick down cable, it almost eliminates the problem for a day or so, and then it comes back. I put a junkyard cable on it and it does the same thing. What does this sound like?

Thank you

Make sure the return spring is installed properly on the tranny end of the TV cable. Sometimes one end pops off.





Mine usually shifts differently each time the battery has been unhooked. Most consistent if I unhook battery (NEG cable), let it sit for a few minutes with key ON to drain circuits, key OFF, rehook cable, start, idle a few minutes, then do several normal constant accelerations between 0 and 60mph on a straight level road.

I'm starting to think its time for a new governor solenoid and sensor. It's been this way for a few months. My cable return spring is attached fine. When applying only a little throttle it bucks from 1st to 2nd and it does that until I give it more gas.

The adjustment for the kickdown cable is just left of the throttle body (assuming you have the 4.0). It's a white clip. Pull up on it and there are little teeth on the cable. Move the cable in and out to adjust. Adjust it very little at a time.

That's very strange. Does yours do the same thing as mine?

That sounds like mine. I think I might order a new governor solenoid and sensor and see if that cures it.

Mine did that same thing 1-2-1 a awhile back. I already changed the sensor and solenoid. Adjusting the cable helped but did not eliminate the issue. Turned out I was leaking fluid slowly and was just a half quart low. The 42RE is sensitive. Added fluid and no more problems.

I've had a leak from the pan for a while and couldn't get it to seal with just the rubber gasket. Today I took the pan off and changed the gasket out with a new one. Used rtv on both sides of the gasket and refilled the fluid. Problem is gone. Thank you very much, I've been chasing this problem for a while now.
