Hello All:

I jjust purchased a 1990 Volvo 245 wagon that has issues when shifting from 3rd to 4th and into overdrive. The car seems to "hang" in 3rd until reaching 45 mph. The the car will reach 60-65 before hitting overdrive. The engine seems to be revving too high before reaching the gear change.

Any ideas..or familiar problems..

Check your kick down cable located by your throttle cable it could be out of adjustment or seized.It is the cable with the 2 13mm nuts on it.The cable should be straight not much slack or to tight.
