I change aod trans and it got a tv rod instead of cable how to adjust the rod. It goes in 2 nd gear when u take your foot off the gas but when u and gas to the petal it wont shift in 3 gear. The trans I change out was leaking in front of trans so I change the front seal and it still leak and it was not going in any gear so I got this trans from a salavage yard now I am having problems to no leaks thank u

We don't have any info on that old of vehicle it kind of sounds like the you have to much tv pressure though i'd back it off or bring the rod forward about an 1/8" and try it then
