check either your throttle valve cable a cable that tellls the tranny to shift based on how much gas yo give it, also called a kick down cable /or you vacume modulator man, its a valve that shifts gears based on the demands on the motor, higher rpm = lower vacume

its the vacume modulator on the passenger side of the tranny about half way back on it. looks like a can. it should have a vacume line hooked to it that runs to the intake or carb. used to fall of on my regal all the time.

oh o.k. i thought you had a 350 or 250. if you buy a replacment cable at NAPA or most other auto parts stores, you should be able to get one that has an ajustable sleeve. so you can pretty much make it any length you want. i have one on my car and i also have a ajustable trottle linkage mount, i can pull it closer to the carb or closer to the fire wall,maybe that will help.

Ok here's 1 for ya...i got the 3.8L v6 83 regal..wit all the emissions vac lines runnin all over the motor..well i removed the charcoal canister an all the emission vac lines. i think it is an electric fuel system throttle body 2bbl carb that was on it...i put the edelbrock intake an 4bbl holley carb on it..that r not set up 4 emissions,do u think the electric fuel system could be causein the trans..not 2 change or its juz my linkage not set correctly.
