You might chk. to see if you have temp. sensor thats bad, you have a temp. sensor sending unit for the guage, and you may also have seperate one for the over drive, if bad it will not send a signal and let it shift into O.D. some cars and trucks have one. its purpose is to not let it shift to soon into over drive, until it gets to a certain temp. i can't say for sure if yours has got one or not but it might be worth looking into.

Well when you are in cold weather and after a high mileage. The Transmission solenoids fails when its cold and they get stuck for a moment and all i can say is that you warm your car for a while before you leave your house and thats good for the engine too and aslo will keep your car running for a long time. Good luck

Sounds like it might be choke? Maybe a vacuum line leaking around the throttle body? Or oxygen sensor? Or throttle position sensor? Or mapp sensor?

Not positive, but I would try those in that order. I hope this helps.

Shifting problems


The transmission/computer is designed not to go into overdrive until it reaches a certain temp and I don't remember what the temp is. Mine does same thing and it has 250,000 miles on it. When you start your truck up do you start it and warm up in neutral? The transmission fluid won't flow unless it is. There is know way to force it to shift into overdrive until it warms to the set temp.

Hope this helps
