Many vehicles still on the road today utilize TV, or Throttle Valve cables, to control when and how the transmission shifts. Here’s what you need to know about yours, from Brooksville Transmissions, Inc. in Brooksville, FL.
The TV cable is directly linked to the position of the throttle, and moves when you hit the gas. It’s extremely sensitive to movement and adjustment, and as such, it doesn’t take much to make one start acting up. If your transmission shifts too late in certain gears, shifts to softly, shifts to firmly, shifts through gears too soon, or feels like it’s slipping in and out of gear, your TV cable is likely to blame.
Often, people assume their entire transmission is failing, and decide to just keep driving until it fails completely - when all it needed was a simple adjustment to be back in shape in no time. Unfortunately, if you keep driving a car, truck, or SUV that has a poorly adjusted TV cable, the transmission will eventually sustain damage and fail as a result. If you notice conditions similar to these in your vehicle, get it looked into sooner rather than later. It may be a simpler solution than you think.
