Transmission problem
1995 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 102000 miles

I just changed the transmission on my 95 Corolla 3 speed automatic with a used one and there is a problem when my car shifts gears: It shifts from 1st to 2nd around 25m/h and from 2nd to 3rd around 55m/h !
On the same time the shifts are accompanied by a jerking motion.
How can I adjust the transmission so it will shift sooner and get rid of the jerking motion?
Can I find any transmission adjustment manual so any lists about this?
Thank you.

You need to adjust the TV cable, it is the lower cable on the throttle body cam, that attaches to the trans. It is too loose causing delayed shifts.

Remove cable end from TB and pull on it, there should be increasing tension as you pull it out, if not then cable is broke and MUST be replaced, do this ASAP or trans will start slipping and will have to be rebuilt or replaced.
