Throttle and TV Cable Adjustment
Hi- I have a 1987 Bronco with a 5.0 L 302 V8 and a AOD transmission. My transmission has always shifted roughly and not at the right time. Its always seems like it gears down when its not supposed to, then gears back up again. Basically, going in between gears constantly. It also seems like it revs up the rpm's before it finally switches to the next gear, especially in the lower gears. I was told the only way to adjust the transmission on a AOD Transmission is to adjust the TV Cable. How do you go by doing this? In addition, the throttle is pretty stiff and seems to stick sometimes. Is there a way to adjust the throttle cable also? I would told to lubricate the cables real well.
