      when you have the trans pan off of the truck you will see an arm that pivots off of a servo on the passenger side of the transmission towards the front of the pan. Pull down on the arm. If you get the tip of your finger or more in between the servo and the arm then it is out of adjustment. If you look on the drivers side of the transmission above the pan on the outside of the case between the trans cooler line and the shift lever, you will see a 3/4" jam nut on a torx head shaft. loosen the jam nut then with your fingers tighten the shaft in until you have around 1/4" of clearence on the arm at the servo. Do not over tighten the band as this will cause it to bind up and try and engage 2 gears at once. Once the adjustment is tightened up tighten the jam nut and recheck the arm. If ok put your pan back on and fill with fluid. I have given you the shade tree mechanic version of how to adjust a band. The proper official way is the get an inch pound torque wrench. Loosen the jam nut on the drivers side of the trans case and then tighten to 72 inch pounds. After tightening to 72 inch pounds back off the adjuster 1 3/4 turns. Tighten jam nut. Good luck
