ok Im gettin kinda annoyed with my transmission!!! I can be driving down the road, Lets say like 20-30 mph just as if i was starting out. 2nd gear im guessin around 15, and then here's the problem, After this it constantly shifts into a higher gear, and my rpm's drop. and im goin slow as hell down the road. Then of course give it a little more gas to get it going, and and it drops into passin gear , well for like 2 seconds, and then boom right back into the same gear, going slow again!!( it does this in both overdrive and in regular drive) What is causing this??? Ive swapped the camaro 3.1 into my blazer (engine wise) and used the blazer tranny, I was wondering if maybee a camaro transmission would work if i just had the tail shaft changed so it would bolt up back there. Orrrrrr Just Make it A 5-Speeed and forget all about the dam automatic, and shift myself. Does anybody know what the problem is here, Or what all I would need to do to convert to a 5-speed... like parts wise, tranny wise ect.. if any 1 can help i'd appreciate it...

Have you tried to adjust your TV cable? It controls line pressure, shift points, shift feel, part throttle downshifts and detent downshifts. Is it similar to the functions of a vacuum modulator and a detent cable.

It only came out *one* click :confused: ??? More should have came out than that... If you flip the throttle body really quick, it might sound like one big click (more like a ratcheting sound) rather than a bunch of small ones. Here's a write up that will help you understand how the TV cable works: http://www.73-87.com/garage/tvcable.htm
You should adjust it ANY time you mess with the throttle body, change intakes, change trannies, basically anytime you move anything the TV cable is attached to... Sometimes the cable will stretch and that can give you problems too. Best to just replace it at that point. Glad to hear that it's shifting better for ya, maybe you can make a good thing even gooder ;). HTH's
