confused Borg Warner trouble

I have a bw35 trans in my XF Ghia. Under very light acceleration it wants to get in to top VERY early I mean like 25kmh its intop. If you accelerate up a hill hard it shifts firmly from 1 to 2 and then slips slighty going in to top. On the flat under firm power it seems to be ok. I have just had a recent full service which included band adjustment. I was hoping this would fix it but no. The car has 150kms on it......any ideas guys???? Im sure the shifts are meant to be more evenly spaced than they are!

My XF Ghia was suffering a similar problem.

Check the kickdown cable - it should be a 7.5mm gap between the cable body & the black thingy on the inner - I know thats pretty vague - but you'll know it when you see it - also check that the inner isn't broken. Also - make sure your accelerator cable is well adjusted - my XF's done 140km & it's stretched - so the throttle butterfly was only opening like 80% - and not pulling the kickdown cable enough.

Now 1/3 throttle at low speeds is enough to hold the gears longer which makes for much swift progress through traffic with minimal throttle opening - and when you boot it it holds the gear right to the red (which admittedly ins't that high....)

its also likely that they over-adjusted the bands in the auto - this would cause your problem too
