I was under the impression that the kickdown link adjustment is just to take it up the slack in the cable. If you adjust it so that its tight however not pulling on the throttle body lever then that is fine. Atleast thats how I adjusted mine once I an initial got it.

Where that attaches height end, the piece that goes right into the bracket has actually a spring and the inside piece has a bunch of grooves to run up/down would be the best method to explain it. There"s a white clip the goes right into the grooves holding that in place, maintaining the cable in one position. Initially it was leading to it to absent down method too hard, so have actually been playing through it to see exactly how it transforms the transmission response. What i don"t know is the proper means to adjust it to wherein it need to actually be. Indigenous what I deserve to tell, it appears to size or shorten the sheath. In law that, figure it alters the size of the cable in which method thus transforming how the functions.

With engine off, press the D shaped relax button and also push the cable/housing all the way back in to the adjuster. Release the button and twist the throttle affiliation to broad open position. You"ll hear it "ratchet" together it me adjusts itself. That"s it. Factory. *Now, if you"re going to "tweak it", you have the right to move it back "n forth a click or two at a time and also test journey it. Walk too much either direction can cause serious tranny damage.
Thanks because that the help. The kickdown cable despite is different than in your pic. Found a pic through what mine watch like, yet thinking it needs to work very similar.

Thanks for the help. The kickdown cable though is different than in your pic. Uncovered a pic through what mine watch like, however thinking it has to work very similar.
Yes, the looks different than my "93. If you eliminate the clip, readjust whatever move there towards the adjuster, put the clip ago on and also twist the accelerator to wide open, does that ratchet out, or just stay in place?I would google for tv cable mediate on your particular jeep. No issue "how" it"s adjusted, I understand it can damage your tranny if it"s misadjusted.

Well, after the tranny incident, as soon as all was earlier together there was a pair issues happening. One was the front drive column being compressed also much, which i think is the prior CV joint giving the trouble (fixed with the 2" lift). And also the other was i was detect the kickdown being too hard. Felt prefer the whole rearend was going to come off. Normally was between 1st and 2nd I felt it. Played through the cable a bit and was a bit better but not great. Checked out my mechanic but at slower speeds didn"t feeling as poor as the small highways ns drive on therefore wasn"t totally sure, yet I knew the wa to carry out with the kickdown cable What i did was pushed it every the method toward the tranny as it would go there is no too lot pressure. Within I saw the "teeth" yet didn"t know precisely how they to be to work. Incidently this every DOES have an impact on gas mileage. SOooo. On the weekend at the wreckers they had actually two WJ"s, one gift the 4.0 but absent the engine. Cable come the tranny was still there, and had the retainer clip ns was absent as ns suspected there must be other there. So sat I began playing. Got It so it woldnt kick hardlty in ~ all however had come hiot 3000rpm"s to change gear. Any more the one method it kicked. Therefore tried the various other way. Wasn"t feeling appropriate so go a couple of notches additional which is wherein I to be now. So how it"s shifting now is virtually a "soft" feeling to it. In the power band when it move to second it normally drops noticeably and has to build earlier up. Now? Smoooooth. Obe right right into the various other with no power loss once it changes. If ns hit the gas it takes off as usual, and find that doesn"t run up always in rpmto struggle the next gear on spme big hills. The biggest surprise to be gas mileage. Filled increase today and also eas guessing i was obtaining over 600km per tank. According to the regimen I usage to track my mileage/gas. Is 11.09litres/100km. I"m like that. Just hopeing its no a negative thing because that the tranny though.
