1992 Camaro RS 700R4 Problem

My friend has a 1992 Chevy Camaro RS with a TBI 305 and a 700R4 I might buy from him. It shifts from first to second fine and then instead of going to 3rd it open revs like its in neutral and if you let it rev towards redline it shifts into 3rd. Anyone know what could be wrong with it. Any help would be appreciated.

i would start by replacing the throttle valve cable/kickdown cable. The cable goes from the throttle body down to the transmission. It opens the throttle valve in the transmission to increase pressure in the transmission and makes it shift. If you buy a haynes manual on the vehicle it will tell you how to adjust the cable.

Thanks for your help. I was thinking of replacing throttle valve cable and if that doesn't help then maybe its the throttle valve itself that could be stuck open. I also have another 700r4 core from a 83 camaro that I wanted to get the video and rebuild kit for to rebuild myself can anyone tell me if this looks like a good rebuild kit. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/87-93...Q5fAccessories Im gonna be keeping the stock 305 for now but I wan't to build something that can take alot of abuse and chirp the tires when I wan't to without messing anything up.

I prefer to not buy this kind of stuff off ebay, I have learned my lesson with engine parts and wouldn't attempt it with transmission parts. You don't know what your getting and probably have never even heard of the manufacturer. I like to buy all of my stuff through www.summitracing.com I have never had an issue with anything that I have bought there and they are good priced also.

This actually looks like a very well put together kit. As with any kit you may need other parts like bushings, bearings, thrust washers, HP Shift Kit etc..

Few other parts sites>>

another thing to take into consideration is, do you have the tools to rebuild a transmission or are you able to borrow them from somewhere. Unless you are going to rebuild more than one transmission by the time you buy the kit and the tools and take the chance on if your trans works the way you want it to or if at all you might be better of having it done by a shop. If a shop does it you will also get a warranty with it and if you do it your on your own, probably even if the parts fail because the manufacturer will argue that they weren't installed by a professional or some crap like that. Just my two cents.
