    Yes I can help with this, you need a new kickdown cable.

    There is no point in buying a new one, it is a dealer item (trust me) and they charge WAY too much for them. Go strip one from a junk yard, just be careful when removing the clip from the firewwall, you dont want to bust the plastic retainers.

    Your kick down cable is the only input the tranny gets from the real world, without it working properly your OD and shift points will be WAY off.

    The computer controls a few things on these automatics but the adjustment of the kick down is very critical to overdrive and down shifting.
