Question Re: shifting

Your TCC solenoid might be stuck closed as well. This can happen over time.

Does the car feel like it wants to die when slowing down to stop?

Default Re: shifting

not really it will idle pretty normal after i slow down with it still in drive like at a red light it is all good but when i take off (normal acceleration) it will go good through first then go to second then right to third lugging the motor so when i try to go a little faster it just takes for ever to get up to speed cause its lugging so bad

Exclamation Re: shifting

See Phil's comment and link.

Also, check the tag on the passenger's side of the trans. A TR trans (86/87) will have BRF on it. If yours does not, that may be part of the reason for your issues as well.

My car has recently started doing this. I initially adjusted the tvcable, but it continues. What are your suggestions?

Exclamation Re: shifting

It might indicate the valve body and other key parts inside are from a different car (perhaps a Cadillac sedan), and that might be why the car shifts like one.

Some trans repair places (like Aamco) have transmissions on the shelf ready-to-go and switch them out when you bring your car in. Your TR gets a Caddy slushbox, granny's Cad gets a neck-snapping TR unit.
