Estima acr30 problem

The other day my estima suddenly lost the overdrive gear. There is no clutch slip, just that the revs is higher than normal. Checked the ATF, it is hot but more than sufficient. Changed the ATF including the filter but still the overdrive gear is still not engaging. Asked the mechanic to clean up the valve control unit in the gearbox, still it refuses to engage overdrive. General driving is smooth but without the overdrive, highway travel is troublesome because of the high revs required. Could you suggest areas that i should look at?

SOURCE: Overdrive will not connect when switched on

3 things can be the problem: The button that you press for the overdrive may be damaged and the parts have come loose inside and that was why it would come in and out of overdrive (the whole assembly where the button is) The solenoid which is either inside the tranny or right outside the tranny may have been damaged . You might have 4 soleniods in total. Or your computer is bad. A bad computer will cause more effects to the car as you drive it though. Some mitsubishi engine have a safety thing that if there is something wrong with the tranny or parts there of, it will not allow you full control of options (similar to vanos engines and tranny's in bmw's) I hope this helps.

Runs high rpm

depending on the tyre size and the final drive in the diff. that is about right. If you are worried about clutch slipping or if the OD is working then the rpm's would be way higher.

I have a 1998 ford f-150 4.6 liter and it slips in overdrive but when overdrive is turned off doesnt slip but only shifts up one gear first to second what is wrong

It sounds like you have lost overdrive and it is slipping in third. Being a 1998, likely with a lot of miles the trans has probably burnt the direct clutches. If the ATF has a burnt smell then it's time for an overhaul.

Slips when shifting gears

If the clutch slips, the clutch disc is worn out. The clutch hydraulic system only "disengages" the clutch.

What are the symtoms of a bad clutch switch

If the engine revs up more than normal and your not gaining speed then the clutch is slipping.If you shift down to pass and then try to accelerate and the engine revs up but you don't gain speed,the clutch is slipping.If with the park brake on you can let the clutch out without stalling you need a clutch.If it makes a tinny sound when the clutch is pushed,you need a trow-out bearing
