Question type: General

When I start the vehicle put in drive it seems to be in overdrive
no shifting.

1 Answer


I don't believe that the truck would even move if it was stuck in overdrive and the fluid temp would get hot enough to burn, I have seen a few of them get stuck in second gear due to internal problems, but never overdrive.
