My transmission is in need of adjustment, it seems to be shifting extremely hard into each gear. I was wondering where this adjustment was on the transmission that you could adjust quality of shifts. I cant seem to find it because everything under that car is just soaked in oil. Also, how do you guys go about doing this adjustment? A picture would really help.

This is where karugs steps in with the pictures, its simply by adjusting the bowden cable on top of the valve cover near the firewall. Ask karugs about it, he will help, hes a good guy.[8)]

Yeah, just adjusted the bowden cable thingy. For some reason it was adjusted all the way out. Made an incredible difference in the quality of shift. Changed the kickdown a little.
