    Default Transmission Troubles

    Fix one problem and another one starts...I just got done fixing a problem with my 92 LT1 randomly not wanting to start (or it seems to be fixed so far) but now I've got a new problem. When I took it for a drive, it's not changing gears or selecting gears like it should. I backed out of the driveway and pulled it into drive, it hesitated for a second before engaging 1st gear, then seemed to take off okay, but stayed in 1st a long time before shifting out on easy acceleration. If I take off hard, it only goes up to about 35mph then shifts on into 2nd. If I'm cruising along at 45-50mph and floor it, it only comes down one gear instead of dropping down to 2nd and really taking off. I don't think right now that there's actually anything wrong with the transmission, leaning more towards something like a vacuum line problem or I've pulled a plug or wire loose or something that's just not keeping it from selecting gears properly. Whatever it is, I'm missing it.

    Is the TV cable to the throttle body adjusted correctly?
    Or the trans governor may be sticking

    I end up calling him on anything else I'm going to just put him on speed dial! Ironic thing is when I heard from him, he's got another one there he's working on right now that's got the exact same symptoms.
