Last summer, I found out the hard way what the throttle valve cable does and what can happen when it is disconnected. For those who don't know, the TV cable connects the throttle body to the transmission to vary valve pressure and change the shifting characteristics based on what the car is currently doing. If this setup is not functioning properly, it can cause major transmission problems, up to and including completely nuking your forward clutch pack.

In the past 2 weeks, I have seen at least 2 guys suffer the same fate. Please, I am begging you, spend five minutes to check this out and you might just save yourself a couple thousand dollars. If your car is not shifting into OD, this is a REALLY good place to start. Please see the video below for a very simple explanation of how to make the adjustment. I have mine set just a little bit tight and I love the firmer shifts.
