Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Good morning ans welcome to JustAnswer!!!
Here is the directions to adjust the cable:
ADJUSTMENT - THROTTLE VALVE CABLE
A correctly adjusted throttle valve cable will cause the throttle lever on the transmission to move simultaneously with the throttle body lever from the idle position. Proper adjustment will allow simultaneous movement without causing the transmission throttle lever to either move ahead of, or lag behind the lever on the throttle body.
NOTE: Be sure that as the cable is pulled forward and centered on the throttle lever stud, the cable housing moves smoothly with the cable. Due to the angle at which the cable housing enters the spring housing, the cable housing may bind slightly and create an incorrect adjustment.
When the cable is off of the transmission can you push the lever and it spring back? if you can move it and feel the spring tension and it moves back then it's fine..
Can you push it with your hand and feel the spring tension in the transmission?
If there is no spring tension on the TV lever on the transmission then the valvebody will need to be removed to inspect the TV throttle spring..
