In over drive it sometimes does not want to engage in gear when shafting gear. What could be causing it to happen?
It is an automatic. Does not do it in drive. And was just doing it from time to time. But now
it is doing it more. Help.
Sounds like a worn Overdrive band, common issue with the AOD's over 120K miles. Just keep the O/D locked out and you should be fine. If you want O/D, your looking at a rebuild.
Another thing to check is the grommet that attaches the kick down cable to the throttle. Those dry rot and then your trans is toast. They sell an updated bushing made from brass instead of plastic.this will make it shift improperly
