I've played with the kick down cable till I'm blue in the face, matter of fact it never changed a thing in my case. Yesterday I noticed that while cruising up a hill my transmission downshifted really easily. Normally I drive up that same hill on cruise control. That got me to thinking why would it do that? The TPS of course. This morning I moved the TPS counterclockwise about 2-3mm. Problem solved. BTW, the kick down cable currently is loose.
