Transmission won’t shift into third gear
I have an 1976 olds cutlass supreme 5.7.
I’m having troubles with the transmission not
shifting into third gear. Goes into second just fine
but have not seen third. The kickdown cable has
been bypassed. The floor shifter reads D 2 1 I can
downshift from D to 2 but nothing from 2 to 1
Sounds like whoever bypassed the kick down cable might have messed up the linkage. If its not that then there's probably a problem with the transmission itself. Any transmission shop will be able to give you an evaluation and a repair estimate.
