the TV cable minimum adjustment and maximum pull must be correct for proper shifts.

If minimum setting is too loose, the trans may go into a ''fail safe'' mode GM designed in. The trans will then shift late as if the throttle is WOT

Overdriv The cable on a 700R4 is a throttle valve cable. It is imperative that it be adjusted correctly and have the correct geometry or the trans will not shift right and possibly not at all. If it came out of the truck you put it in then it's probably ok.

You need to take a pressure check of the trans and report back.
