hey i was just wondering what would cause my caddy to not downshift when i have my foot to the floor. usually when i punch it the car will rear back and then haul ass. now i punch it and it just creeps up like if it was at half throttle.

which engine do you have?

If it's the olds 307 you can try adjusting the tv cable (it's self adjusting) by pushing in the tab and pulling the slider all the way back, (with the car off) then pushing throttle to WOT. It will adjust it's self.

It could also be a vacuum issue.
