Trans wont shift.

my turbo 350 trans will not shift.. it was odd today we did a compression check on the camaros 350 and it was in perfect order 130 all around also found a spark plug wire that was grounding off onto the headers fixed that and now it has alot more power. but after that i took it for a spin and i noticed that the rpms where running at like 2k-3k going 30mph, and when i press the gas pedal it goes but it wont shift.. so i go to auto zone and have them check one dude says the kick down cable on the carb was really loose and it was.. anyone have any ideas of what this could be?

I love those old cars with big engines and loud tires.

check fluid

First of all since your engine was not running at full power, you were more than likely losing some torque. If your trans fluid level was low b4, you may not have noticed, it very well could be the kickdown cable. You have probably checked, i hope, but you need to let the car get at operating temperature so that you can properly check the fluid level. Keep the car running while checking the fluid level or else you won't get a proper reading.

and adjust the kickdown cable for christ sakes, if it looks loose
Despite the high cost of living, it remains very popular.
