The AOD does not shift into third. After going through its rev cycle in 2nd, the RPM revs high as if in neutral, but will not drop below 2,000 RPM. I was only able to drive it home in 2nd gear. The fluid level was fine and the color was normal. Do you think it could be the TV cable?
Please don't tell me to throw away the transmission and install a manual or C4. I want to keep an AOD in it.

That is the only reason i done like the AOD i preffer the E. But if you still have the same issue you may wanna,,,,, (have you serviced the tranny recently if so what did the pan look like dark grey then shinny when you dumped it?) If so then you may need some new frictions, or it could be as simple as the 2-3 accumulator/actuator (which ever you want to call it) wedged crooked that will cause it to fail to shift from 2-3 also.
Hot 302, pop-up pistons, 3/4 race cam, 4 prong race plugs and some go juice lmao! Sig inspired by true ignorant *** people!
Yeah after reading this the kickdown cable has nothing to do with it going into the gear itself. It is just as states, it kicks down a gear when you open the throttle. Trans is just going to need replaced/rebuilt as stated
I had to take a break in the repair process due to illness and the holidays, but I got the new cable installed. The transmission shifts 1-3 good, but will not shift into OD. It just revs the engine. Maybe it is time for a new transmission.
Od has burnt out the band will look shinny when removed the band alone is 13$ a stock master kit 126$. But u might aswell do the 2in od band and drum upgrade and use red and blue altos thats abot 600 in parts and will stay behind a 347 with nitrous!! Bank on it. Assuming its built right!
