The throttle cable can't be adjusted but the kickdown can be adjusted. Shorten the cable length to get it to kick down a gear sooner. It will kick down under less power.Lengthen the cable length to get it to kick down later. It will kick down with more power.
well its Between the Gear and the Throttle there you can find the Kick-Down Cable
kick down cable
The transmission shifting is late because the kick-down cable needs to be adjusted. The kick-down cable is usually found on the throttle lever with the throttle cable.
If you mean a Kick down cable you will ruin your transmission as the Kick down cable was only used by most manufacturers in the 1950s and 60s. Later cars had a system where the cable everyone called the Kick down was actually a throttle position cable and controlled the transmission internals to prevent slipping and controls how harsh the shifts are.
It does not have one.
Shorten the kickdown cable to make the transmission kick down into a lower gear sooner. Lengthen the cable to make the transmission shift down later or at a lower power setting.
It is the kick-down cable that runs from the throttle body to the transmission.
ford makes a tool for setting the throttle pressure cable(kick down cable).You can buy one of these from your local ford dealer for about mmmmmmmm15 to 19 dollars.easy to use
This is not a "kick-down" cable per my tranny mechanic. This cable goes to a transmission fluid pressure valve and will burn up your transmission if not changed immediately....
kick down cable is stuck
It's attached to the throttle body.
That is the wire that actuates the kick down solenoid. The th400 has an electric kick down solenoid and no cable like the th350
kick down cable is out of adjustment from pedal to transmission.
Loosen the clamp bolts on the cable. If it is shifting down to a lower gear when the throttle is at max it is all right. If it is shifting down too early, lengthen the cable adjustment. If it is shifting down too late or not at all shorten the cable adjustment.
give it a kick.
The transmission won't downshift when you press hard on the accellerator.
i pulled off the end of the cable from the shifter and found it was snapped. i then took off the whole indash. I would just lke to know the easiest way to go about pulling and replacing it! I'm wondering as well what tools i may need?
Holley sells the necessary hardware.

Probably the kick-down cable needs adjustment. Ensure that the kick-down cable is properly adjusted. Depends on what type of vehicle. Some FWD GM's will not downshift into 1st if the fuse is blown controlling the computer. It really depends on the model and year of car. Dan
