Squeeze This Tab... Its next to the Throttle and Cruise cables

While squeezing the above Tab, Pull the cable all the way towards the firewall untill it stops..

Then to reset the TV adjustment, Push down on the throttle assembly all the way to wide open.... It doesn't require massive force.... Just push it all the way down to WOT and the TV cable will self adjust

Now that you know the adjustment is correct... Drive the car and see what it does.... After a short time go back home and allow the car to idle, run the car through each gear range and then back to park.... Let the car idle for a minute and check the fluid... You should be in the center of the cross hatched range of the trans dipstic..
