Default Passing gear

How do you adjust the kickdown cable/linkage on a '91 f150 5.8? Pulls good till you try to pass, then it's like i have to hit the gas almost to the floor before it will dnshift. and thats w/the O/D off! HELP!!!

Confirm that your throttle plates are opening completely. It takes two people to check this. One holding down the gas, and one looking in the intake.

Telling us what transmission would help. I'm guessing E4OD but I have no clue what you may or may not have.

Can't be the E4OD, doesn't have a kickdown cable.

There should be a cable connected to the throttle body. It's got a plastic adjusted. Pull the clip and slide it to the desired tension.

You just described every car I've ever driven. Sounds normal to me...

What? Nothing about swapping to a manual transmission?

Personally I fixed the problem by not trying to pass anybody in my truck. The car on the other hand has no such issues....
