I have a 2008 Explorer Sports Trac. Overdrive does not seem to kick in after approx 30 miles per hour. Engine revs up to 2500 RPMs and sounds real loud. OD light is not blinking and when I click switch on column nothing happens other than light indicates OD is off. Any ideas?

What is the engine speed at 60 or 70 mph?

Best Answer

Somewhere between 2500-3000 RPMs

34,885

That is a little high. Your OD may not be engaging. I would take it to a good transmission shop.
