Question about 2001 Chevrolet Lumina
I have a 2001 Chevrolet Lumina, and last night it started having a weird problem when I was driving in Overdrive. If I got over about 40-45 mph, it would start making a strange noise, but only when I pressed on the gas. If I removed my foot from the gas, the noise stops.
the noise is like a revving sound, but not extremely loud. It also feels a bit like the car is having problems accelerating a bit. Pretty much any speed i go over 45, this sound remains.
If I drive in drive instead of overdrive the sound isn't there.
Any ideas what might be happening with my car?

sounds like a 700r4 tranny thats usually what happens when they decide to quit you loose overdrive and reverse. About 900 to 1000$ to rebuild.

You might want to have the ignition switch checked because there are three wires that run to the tranny and if it does not sent the correct voltage to the tranny (electric) then it doesn't know the RPM to shift, you may wonder how i know this? because i just had a tranny rebuilt three times over this same problem they replaced the harness from the ignition to god only knows where for 150.00 and now it is doing great.
