Subject: TV Cable/Low shift points
IP: Logged

Message:
At partial throttle, my 2002 R/T shifts from 3rd to 4th (OD) at around 1500 to 1800 RPM's. This seems way too low for me and seems to really "bog" the motor. Is this normal and can I change this with adjusting the TV cable ?

TV cable won't help the O/D shifting at all. It will help to change the shift points to a certain extent, but it doesn't effect the OD. And yes, it is normal, mines does it too. The whole idea is to keep the RPMs as low as possible, hopefully to get some gas milage. Yeah right :-)

The shift points are the biggest source of irritation with my 2002, even though it's a 3.9, not a 5.9. They program the shift points to occur at the place where grandpa will be happy. I find it very annoying that I can't get the engine to rev past 2000rpm unless I put my foot WAY into it, and even then it's tough to get it to hold a gear past 3000rpm or so. I'm used to being able to control the engine rpm's with throttle position...I don't like this at all.

adjusting the tv cable will change the shifting pattern, to an extent. on mine when i adjust it too tight, it takes a long time to shift. but i think that the time it takes to shift is only effected at part throttle, and its all pretty much the same at wot...
