I don't think there is. What is your transmission doing or why are you wanting to make an adjustment?

There are shift points noted in the Workshop Manual but those are factory shift points and you already have a broken-in tranny and it will already have a character. Those shiftpoints will be different from vehicle to vehicle. It depends on how it was broken in.

My most noticeable shiftpoint is when you are accelerating past 50 and it goes when you hit 50, the rpm goes from 2000 to 1500 rpm.

When starting normally from a stop the trans has very short shift points. It does not feel like it is slipping, but the shift points are barely noticeable, just not what I am used to in every other auto.
When I am entering, say, from an on ramp to a highway and floor it , it appears to wind out and shift normally. BTW the trans fluid is nice and red no burning, Any Ideas? Thanks :rellye

The fliud can be red without a smell but with the age of yor truck, you could have a couple of laquered up valves in your valve body.

Do you think using Seafoam (Specifically for the trans, Which I saw in a NAPA store) and then having the fluid & filter changed would be an answer? :rellye
It might not be a bad idea, and won't cost much to do.

is Seafoam an additive? if so, i hear they're not good for the tranny. which is why the Disco IIs dont have a tranny dipstick. aparently people were screwing up their trannies by putting additives in.

if you think about it. these oil companies spend millions/billions on reaserching in labs and such to make the proper formulas (especialy synthetic oils) what makes you think you can improve upon it with some crap you found in an auto parts store?

just my thoughts on the matter.

Bene,
You are getting some bad advise. There are a number of good additives for transmissions, and in the case of our German ZF's, they need all the help we can give them. The lack of a dip stick is just our German friends way of getting back at us Rover owners, as well as some Jags and BMWs that use the same set up.
