Talking Re: Anyone that hasn't adjusted their Throttle Valve cable do it. WOW.

I did this today and my cable was about an inch out, what a difference! Solved my sluggish or no OD shifting, very responsive now! Thanks!

Simply amazing isn't it?

But you have to wonder...

How did it get so far out in the first place...

Tranny was shifting late from 2 to 3, found this thread, was admittedly skeptical, invested the 15 seconds and WOW! Back to normal shifting...amazing.

Amazing fix to my otherwise flawless jeep!! I was literally about to drop a grand on the transmission and with 412k miles on her it woulda been hard to explain that to my wife.

Re: Anyone that hasn't adjusted their Throttle Valve cable do it. WOW.

Easy Peasy. Push Button, WOT, Release Button. Cable is Adjusted.

Then: Pull Cable Out 1/4" & Install Cable Clamp at Throttle Lever.
= Instant Shift Kit.
Firm Positive Shifts w/ Heavy Go Pedal. (Thru Entire Gear Range!)
And, Smooth Positive Shifts w/ Light Go Pedal.

Works Very Well on my 96 4.0 HO!

Is there any diff between the standard and auto throttle cable? or is this an auto only thing?

Auto only. Although its good to make sure there isn't excessive slack on a manual throttle cable as well.

I read somewhere else online that most are not computer controlled and those that are don't have this particular cable.

That being said, I took my fuel rail off yesterday to change out my injectors. I was having the heat soak issue in injector three so i replaced all of them and added new heat shielding. Worked like a charm, no more vapor locking. But i noticed after i put everything back together that it was shifting into 2nd and 3rd really hard. I must have accidentally adjusted this little cable because after i tried this trick my jeep feels like a whole new truck. And it really is the simplest thing to do, in my case its just a button and you move the cable housing in and out. I positioned mine about 1mm away from this little brass limiter on the cable, now it shifts so smooth i can hardly feel it.

Re: Anyone that hasn't adjusted their Throttle Valve cable do it. WOW.

I think you adjusted it wrong then... you should follow the adjustment procedure in the first post, basically you adjust it all the way to the far end and then swivel the throttle bellcrank to wide open throttle and the adjuster will ratchet as far as it needs to.

With it adjusted to where you have it, you're probably slipping the clutches in the transmission longer than you need to and may wear things out prematurely.
