Had dealership adjust TV cable, still not right? What speed should OD kick in?
Long story short:
93 5.0 AOD, original tranny, 150k. I started to notice sloppy shifts. Checked tv cable and the grommet was loose. Pulled tv cable adjustment block and grommet fell out(it was toast, lucky I checked it). Replaced grommet, and then tried to adjust by hand(and by shift points). I think I got it pretty close as it was shifting pretty good, just a little harsh on upshifts. The more I researched adjusting the tv cable, the more I realized I needed to have this adjusted with a pressure gauge so I didnt grenade my precious tranny.
So I made an appointment wiith local ford dealer and explained the situation and that I wanted the tv cable adjusted to ford specs. Took the car in and paid the 59.99. After the work was complete I opened the hood to see where it wound up--right at the 'min' mark I had made when I adjusted it. I then took the car out for a drive(in town) and it shifted great(1,2,3 shifts, I always manually put shifter in D when in town). However, yesterday I took the car on the freeway for the first time since the adjustment and noticed that with shifter in OD, it will not shift into OD till almost 60--even at very light throttle. This is NOT how it used to behave, as it would try to go into OD at 40-45 before--for the last 5 years.
Did the dealership mis-adjust? Should I go back and question them and ask for it to be adjusted again? At what speed should it be shifting into OD at?
I have only driven the car about 40 miles since the adjustment, so I am hoping that even in the worst case where the tv cable is mis-adjusted it hasnt been driven enough to hurt it. What should I do?
