Name isXXXXX goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

If you are having problems getting into O/D then do the following first

ADJUSTMENTS > THROTTLE VALVE CABLE>

  1. Ensure gearshift lever is in "P" position and ignition is off. Remove air cleaner. Disconnect throttle valve cable from stud on throttle lever at throttle body.
  2. Ensure throttle lever on throttle body is in idle position and throttle valve lever on transmission is in idle (fully forward) position.
  3. Using small screwdriver, remove locking clip from throttle valve cable. Apply enough tension on cable to remove any slack. Center end of throttle valve cable with stud on throttle lever at throttle body within .039" (1.0 mm).. Install locking clip. Install throttle valve cable on throttle lever.
  4. To verify proper adjustment, ensure throttle valve lever on throttle body and throttle lever on transmission move simultaneously when throttle is depressed. If both levers do not move simultaneously, readjust throttle valve cable.
