==== that is what is known as the "fail safe " mode in a 700/4L60 tranny...... IF the fail safe check ball is in the valve body.
The trany thinks you have the throttle WIDE open IF the TV cable is not set at the minimum setting to dislodge the fail safe check ball.
===== class is dismissed... LOL

On a side note, I pulled the quadrajet and lowered the float and cleaned up the carb in hopes we could avoid buying a new carb and intake right now. I also disconnected all the vacuum lines and plugged them off as there were some broken fittings and things I don't want to deal with right now.
Well, the truck runs ten times better now but when I took it for a test drive it didn't want to shift out of first gear, when it finally did it SLAMMED into the next gear.
I looked at the linkage and my little brother (15 soon to be 16 y.o.) forgot to hook up the tv cable. DOH!!!
I hooked it up and it's running GREAT now!!!!
