Customer Question

700r4 in a project. just installed with now TV cable adjusted properly but I get no shift into 3rd. It shifts 1 then 2 then goes to neutral until you slow enough for it to shift back down. Tranny was sitting on a shelf for a while. Possible stuck valve/servo or just rebuild it?

I am sorry for the long wait

the servo just allys the band which the only difference between 2nd and 3rd gear is the aplication of the 3-4 clutch pack

the odds are the 3-4 clutches will be worn or the 3-4 clutch piston or piston seal is nicked or stuck causing this issue

pull it down and go after the 3-4 clutches and 3-4 piston and piston seal
