    Have you checked the fliud level. the way to do this is to start the car, and run it threw all the gears, while the engine is at an idle and holding the break, leaving it in each gear for about 4 secs before switching. do the same thing runing it back up to park. then get out and pull the dipstick to the transmission. it should be sitting on full. if not then add the appropriet amount. if its full let me know and ill run you threw the next problem that it could be.

    there realy good with cooked valve bodys and even just a light tune up

    yes you can tune up the trans and it recomended

    you obviously drive and tune up your car

    well seams you drive hard and now it's time for a trany service

    try changing the fluid and the filter

    BUT if you find metal shavings in the tranny pan on the magnet or in the fluid it's time for a rebuild pull the dipstick and magnatise it

    look on yahoo for how 2 then insert and drive then pull and check for particles if it has grit it's in da chit

Jumps in and out of overdrive

You may have a control wire to the Overdrive solenoid bare and vibration causes it to short to ground. but that may be a random thing, And should blow it/s fuse when it shorts to groung. But the same kind of bad connection may be near or on the way to the overdrive controls. Worst case there is a problem in the overdrive unit itself.

02 Jeep Grand Cherokee jumps out of overdrive while driving on highway.

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.

1990 f150 automatic with overdrive shifts only at high rpms

Kinda sounds like it works when fluid is thick and not after it warms up. If it has been awhile since trans fluid and filter were changed it is the most simple thing to change. The torque converter is a big pump, it may be going and not providing enough pressure. This could be checked on most transmissions by a shop expert. Sometimes pressure can be adjusted externally.

At what speed does the car need to be put into overdrive? what size fuel tank is in the 1992 park avenue?

Your car probably won't go into overdrive below 35 or 40mph.I have a 1993 and I only put it in third gear only when I want it to stay out of overdrive,I always put the shifter in 4Th or overdrive.If your trans jumps hard between overdrive and 3rd gear or is always searching for a gear to be in you should be concerned and have it serviced.18 gallon tank.
