First check the vacuum line going to the vacuum modulator on the transmission. Be sure it's not damaged. It should be connected to intake manifold vacuum. If you have a turbo-hydramatic 350 check the kick down cable for proper adjustment. If a turbo-hydramatic 400 check the kick down switch for proper adjustment and operation. Inspect the wiring and electrical connections as well. HTH. -Jim
