It can, in fact newer cars do it even more.. .saves fuel....
if fact new cars have fast 1 to 4 gear jump, (no load) MPG feature.
what is it doing and when, and under what loads?????

do you mean downshifting too soon?
OD is top gear. and TCC is torque converter lockup
down shifting happens 3 ways
1: you do it. shifter.
2: low vacuum this is the Load sense, hills cause low vacuum and it down shifts.
3: TV, this is throttle valve , sensed, you stab throttle to pass.
aka; detent, TV. passing gear.
on some cars there is an OD switch to cut out OD, say pulling trailer
pulling any heavy load, may case the OD to hunt, or the TCC to hunt
and is a real pain....

btw the FSM covers all 100 A/T issues, up shifts, down, slips. flare, early ,late. ... its complex device, tend to not own them.

Overdrive comes in at about 42 mph unless you have
the gas pedal completely to the floor at a higher speed

I have a 2002 ford focus and the car will not move in reverse. It moves forward in drive only, but won't kick into overdrive. Any ideas

sounds like its internal, like the reverse band, that applies the overdrive, or the clutches that apply when in overdrive, either way the reverse band and overdrive clutches work hand in hand, for overdrive and reverse... id say you need a rebuild or a junk yard unit.... :( sorry for the bad news.

Try putting the trans in 3rd gear when going up hills.It's trying to get into overdrive & doesn't have enough power to maintain overdrive so it is kicking in & out of gear trying to keep up with the engine.your owners manual should tell you about being in overdrive while going up hils.Good luck,
