I have a 700-R4 transmission, does the tv cable have something to do with
all the shifting or is it just the down shifting? The reason I'm asking is
because the tv cable is pulling away from the plastic cover where it goes
into the transmission. the cable is starting to fray. It takes alot of
rpm's before it shifts from 1st to 2nd and is shifting hard but after that
it shifts just fine.
If someone could help me I would appreciate it.
Yes, the TV cable directly affects downshifts, upshifts and shift quality. If your cable is frayed and the housing is damaged, get a new one on it ASAP. Not doing so will seriously shorten the life of your transmission.
