Thank you for inviting me to Repairpal.com. This is an invaluable resource for me.
We have been corresponding through Yahoo! Q & A about the overdrive sticking. Your last reply had me checking to see if the relay clicks on and off which it does. The next step, you said, was to have the kickdown cable checked and my reply to you was to see if this was a job that I could do myself. Your reply was to invite me to 'repairpal.com' to get the answer.
I would like to know that if I were to take my car in to have the kickdown cable checked, and if needed, fixed, what would this job cost me?
Thanks again, vdriver
OVERDRIVE STICKS/KICKDOWN CABLE on 1990 Volvo 740
Look at this pic: http://bit.ly/sbmd8
Look at the throttle cables, the cable on the bottom is the kick-down cable. With the engine OFF, you can pull the cable lightly, it should pull freely and return freely. If it binds in any way, it needs to be replaced. Check it out and let me know what you find
