Run the fault codes before you tear into the tranny as the recorded fault will pinpoint exactly what you have to fix. Most likely a faulty TCM or a od servo/solenoid.

SOURCE: Transmission problems

First off, I'd try changing the fluid and filter in the transmission. I know a lot of cars claim "lifetime fluid" - it's BS. Believe me, even the lifetime fluids get very dirty. Change out the fluid and filter, and you could even add some Lucas stabilizer to it - that may well help cure the problems.

When the transmission goes completely, it may lock up the drive wheels, sending you into a careening slide, or it may kick out to neutral and coast to a stop. It's also possible that if it flat-out blows, it could fragment inside and you'd hear what sounds like bolts in a blender as you coast to a standstill.

Discounting the transmission blowing up, and just looking at driving in a drive gear other than overdrive, you're looking at more heat in the transmission due to the higher gear RPM, shorter fluid life, possible slippage of the bands down the road due to heat, and of course decreased gas mileage due to the engine running at higher RPM.

SOURCE: 2002 escalade- the transmission doesnt

Sounds like a solenoid or two in the transmission is dirty or defective. Needs a transmission rebuild to rectify it, or a replacement transmission that has lower miles or a newer transmission that doesn't have this problem.

One can try a transmission flush and refill, which costs about $100 or so, but that may not fix the problem. A rebuild is much more expensive, but is the way to go if you plan on keeping the vehicle for years to come.

O/D Off light goes off and on


the overdrive is the 4th gear. considering that it may not be an issue with your computer switching gears to fourth but an issue with the transmission itself. this light could be a signal instead of and engine warning light where the engine is fine but the transmission isnt.

The torque converter is where OD takes place. Look at your transmission fluid cooler to see if it's blocked. The TCM module controls the OD functions so it may not be sending the correct signals.

'98 subaru wont shift from 1st unless rpms are high- morning only


When you first start driving it usually takes atleast 4 miles to warm the transmission to operating temperature. The temp of the motor may say it is warmed up, But, the trans fluid and differential fluid only begins to warm as you drive and the parts are actually working. THe computer has sensors that keep the trans from shifting to OD until the temp is up as not to add stress to the motor until warmed properly. Hope this helps and have a good day.

Sounds like the filter in the trans is plugged up. Should flush trans every 45,000 miles and replace filter and fulid. Its easier to take it in to a shop and have it done they use high pressure flush which will clean out the whole thing for about $200.

in the morning, the transmission will not shift into overdrive for a few miles. This is not a problem. It's designed to do this, allowing the transmission temperature to be warm to prevent damage. good luck happy holiday

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
