700R4 won't go into passing gear?

I know a guy that says his truck won't go into passing gear when you stomp it.

I don't know what to tell him.

He says it's a 700R4 trans.

Wonder if the 700 he has has the valve added to stop 4-3 shift until over 75% throttle. Doesn't explain completely, but might help...

Could be a valve body issue... or more than that a line pressure cable.

I would start with the TV cable, pull and clean the governer and check all vacuum lines and electrical connections.
Then of course, check the fluid level and color.

He's tried stomping it to the floor, it doesn't help.

You got anything I can check?

The truck was carbed, and is now Edelbrock Fuel Injected, and was the same with both systems. The truck belongs to the supervisor of the department I work in at the plant, so I'd like to give him some tips if I can.

You might need to reset the kickdown cable.
It has a button on it. It probley needs to be tighter.



http://www.iroczone.com/techarttvadj.html

"- Adjusting Your Kick-Down Cable for Automatics (TPI Shown) -

I figured I'd go ahead an post this little guide for those who still do not understand what's involved in setting the kick-down cable for the automatic transmissions (700R4). The method I use is actually quite simple



Some refer this cable as the "T.V. Cable." Behind the throttle body, on the driver's side, locate the cable running from the transmission to the throttle linkage assembly. You should see a "D" shaped button. This is on a typical TPI engine. Carb / TBI models may have a similar type of button, setup differently. I am unsure of the setups on these vehicles.



While pushing in the "D" button, pull back the cable until it stops. I couldn't use both of my hands because I was using one for the camera. ;-) You can either pull (like I did there) or push from the front. Once the cable is pulled back (towards the firewall) all of the way, go ahead and release the button.

Push the throttle to WOT (Wide Open Throttle). During this, you will see the cable clicking back forward. You should be able to just use the gas pedal. If the throttle linkage is not adjusted right, your car may shift late. In this case, you may have to use the linkage at the throttle body to push the throttle to WOT. I would also investigate a possible loose or misadjusted throttle cable to the gas pedal."
