    mine does the same thing until the tranny starts to warm up, then it will get more gears as it warms up.

        i remember when i had the 91' wagon, i floored it once and it was stuck in first gear, and turned out the TV cable stuck out, i guess it was never floored before, but it does sound like a TV prob.

          the cable is there and i never messed with the adjustments when i removed it .I just unbolted it from the trans without touching the adjustment bolt. the cable apeares to be functioning properly.

            Did you get the torque converter fully seated back on the input shafts when you put the motor back in?

              If he did not, it would have ended up like Phazer, and not been able to turn over, and/or even bolt up.

              TV does not stop a tranny from shifting, no matter what. Max TV travel just raises the shift point. Believe me I know. My tranny now is set to full TV at WOT and it shifts just fine.

              Duces problem is exactly the same as was mine just before I found out my fluid was thick as hell from all the fine metal dust in the fluid. The metal shavings caused the tranny fluid to be extra thick, so untill it warmed up, it would not allow it to shift, and as it became warmer, it would gain the gears back one at a time.

              Change your fluid. Look in you pan, if you see any small pieces of metal, you are in a bad way. If you see a pretty significant amount of metal dust, you are on your way to the final drive. To check for too much dust, just use a magnet, and stick in on the bottom of the tranny pan, then once you have drained the pan, if there is any significant metal in the fluid it will be stuck to where the magnet is. Strong magnet is recomended.

                  Make sure you dont end up like me when my trans blew and have the car locked up. That sucked big time

                    Be very carful. I would not try and blow you tranny up. I saw an AOD that locked up...not pretty for any part of the car, totaly fucked the rear end and drive shaft, and I wouldn't doubt that the impact had some negative effect on the engine as well.

                      My old one locked up too. Stopped the motor dead when I shifted it into park and made a hell of an ugly sound.

                            Sorry mang, got a bit off topic...

                            Try changing the fuid and filter, and dump a can of seafoam trans tune in or slick50

                            If you already changed the fluid, is it the right kind and is it full?
