Smile Transmission Kick Down

Most Kick down issues are a result of lack of Pedal travel ie the Pedal hits the floor. Just plain old wear and tear. With a Rod system it can be sorted by just pulling the Pedal up to bend it some what.

Thumbs up Re: Transmission Kick Down

Better not to use Kick Down, as it usually triggers full throttle,,,, not always needed nor wanted..... I use the gear lever to select a lower Gear and then the Throttle as necessary. If the Engine is in good Tune and the linkage in good order and set correctly then a part throttle downshift can be obtained.
This applies to all Auto Boxes. Holden Trimatics were horrible Cars to drive as the Factory settings held Top gear till the death. A simple change of a Valve Body Spring transformed the driving experience.
