Customer Question
Well ive got a...

Well ive got a rebuilt 700r4 in my 4wd half ton chevy that was installed about a thousand miles ago. I am no ASE technician and made the mistake of thinking the TV cable was strictly for kickdown purposes but have come to find out otherwise. Today i couldnt get the tranny to upshift...is it done for or do you suppose it may snap out of it with the TV hooked up

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your transmissions?

'92 TH700R4

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes i am. tried taking the governor plate off and making sure the valve was opening and closing correctly which it did but did not make a difference

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Have you noticed any leaks lately?

206xxx miles on the truck but brand new engine installed at 230xxx

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that i can think of..

HI,

A thousand miles is a fair amount to drive without the TV cable hooked. If the fluid was either burnt smelling or a grayish color when you checked the valve, the transmission is done for. If it still had a reddish color and no burnt smell, then installing the TV cable should correct the issue.
