A detent cable and a kick down cable is not the same thing as a TV cable. A TV cable has a completely different purpose than a detent or kick down cable. The TV cable directly controls transmission pressures in 700R4 and 4L60 GM overdrives..

My point is they have all been called the same thing, kick down cable is used a lot when people dont know what to call it. They know if its not working the tranny wont down shift. "kickdown"

If the TV cable is not working right there will be far more serious problems with the tranny than "kickdown". An improperly adjusted TV cable can "fry" a trans in very short order. My point was to mention "kickdown cable", and "detent cable" in the same sentence as "TV" cable as they are all the same is not correct.

The TV stands for (Throttle Valve) Dentent cable controls line pressure.Here's a web site that tell's you a little about it....Like Vince said if it isn't set right it will fry your transmission...

lokare (spelling) has a better part , closer to factory with a much simpler adjustment, again factory design.

the down side , is that you must or it comes with if you like the term better, with there carb throttle cable assembly, no way to buy the parts separately...

Correct, the only GM transmissions that have TV cable are the 200R4, 700R4, and the 4L60. The TH350 and TH400 are kickdown or detent cables.

So without the detent cable in place my TH350 leaks out transmission fluid out of the hole where the cable attaches to the rod like a stuck pig. Should this be expected??
