This problem just started @ 110,000 miles and is very intermitant. When the Overdrive cuts off, most of the time the Transmission Over temp. light cuts on also. It is not overheating as it does it mostly in the mornings after start up.
After running a while both lights cut off and normal operation resumes

Re: Overdrive cuts off buy itself while driving
When the transmission overheat light (this is for the fluid) comes on the transmission control module pulls the trans out of OD to try and cool it down, this is called failure mode strategy, it is built into the programming of the control module, the signal from the trans is most likely incorrect, but the module doesn't know that, replace the transmission fluid temperature sensor.

you probable skipped you're 90.000 major service point 30.000 60.000 90.000 platinum plugs are gone at 100.000 , ready...get you're wallet out.. trans filter service. Flush change all fluids ..brake coolant etc.... rear brakes are done unless replaced..check all brakes..plug wires drive axle fluid. Thermostat... cheep part very impotant. timing belt if it has one .. if it brakes it could smash valves or shut you down..when you do timing belt better do water pump it is usauly driven by timing belt and check all belt drive pullys
Yes, that is a good buy depending on price of course. A Cummins engine can run for 300,000 miles or longer. Generally reach the 500,000 mile mark with no major problems. There is a chance of an injector pump going out if it wasn't maintained well. I would buy it. I hope this helps please rate this and thank you
quite possibly it may be taking a little while to build fuel pressure. next time try cycling the key on and off 3 or 4 times with out cranking the vehicle to allow the pump to build pressure the try to star it up if it starts right up then your problem is it's just taking time to build pressure
One thing to check is if the fuel pump is working and what the fuel pressure is. The pump is inside the fuel tank. The pressure must be 35 to 65 psi. The pump can be working but if the pressure is not enough the car will not start.
