Erratic shifting can be caused by a sticking kick-down cable on Volvo 740

Problem Description and Possible Solution
Delayed and/or erratic shifting can be caused by the transmission kick-down cable sticking. Since the oil pan has to be removed to replace the cable, have the shop replace the transmission filter at the same time
