It doesn't seem as back when I pull out easy. No problem once I'm up to speed. Ideas??? I read something about the TPS sensor? What about the kick down cable adjustment?

Hope to get some ideas. Thanks!!!!!
I rebuild them thar transmissions and I have a educated guess that it just may need a throttle cable adjustment, the TPS is actually used to determine the position of the throttle for proper engaugement of the torque converter and 4th gear.
