Automatic overdrive in 1996 e-150

Asked by Jan 29, 2010 at 04:41 PM about the 1996 Ford E-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a 1996 econoline. The transmission does fine until it shifts into over-drive, then it vibrates the whole van. I can not tell if the trans is slipping or not.  When I accelerate past 65 it is smooth as silk. It is also smooth with the overdrive off. Is the overdrive on this van a lockup tourque converter? Can it be disconnected?

1 Answer

no,it canot be disconeted,you need to take it to a trans shop and have the lock up switch replaced,sounds like it has gone bad.
