Check the transmission fluid when car if warm and running put foot on brake and run it through the gears. know put it in park and see if you have the correct levels are they correct if yes then check the TV cable to make sure its not broken the cable usually runs along with the throttle cable and its used when you press the pedal down to down shift. it might have broke or is out off adjustment..if both of these are o.k. then you need to have it looked at by a transmission shop...it possibly has either a stuck shift valve or a bad shift solenoid or both...they will take pan off to show you that there is no internal damage (meaning "a lot" of metal shavings) a little shavings is normal; and that only those parts should be replaced..probably cost about $500 if its an easy fix.

It may be your transmission. If it shifts hard going through gears also then it may be that. But what you decribed it it slipping gears which would target your transmission or rear end.

What is the o/d button on top of automatic gear stick for please


Over Drive..... Generally speaking, overdrive (OD) is the highest gear in the transmission. Overdrive allows the engine to operate at a lower rpm for a given road speed. This allows the vehicle to achieve better fuel efficiency, and often quieter operation on the highway. When it is switched on, an automatic transmission can shift into overdrive mode after a certain speed is reached (usually 70+ km/h [43+ mph] depending on the load). When it is off, the automatic transmission shifting is limited to the lower gears. For an automatic transmission, it is almost always best to select overdrive and allow the transmission to control engagement of the overdrive. (It may be necessary to switch it off if the vehicle is being operated in a mountainous area or when towing a trailer.) With a manual transmission, overdrive should usually be selected when the average speed is above 70 km/h (approx. 43 mph).

You could have a bad valvebody in your transmission or a bad pump in your transmission or your clutches are bad. In any case you have a bad transmission. Please rate my answer.

Truck will shift in and out of 4th gear


I will call this as 3-4th gear huntig, if this happens at speeds between 55-65 mph, cruise on or off, and no mil light on, replace your tps (throttle position sensor) mounted on the throttle body driver side, internal malfunction in tps causing on open in the sense return to pcm , like wot, 4-3 downshift, then back to 4th. Might be good idea to service this trans also. GOOD LUCK RDJRP.

Maximum speed and fuel consumption


What you have is simple. The vehicle's computer only allows the vehicle to reach up to 95mph. as a safety feature. If you're racing it, you will need to get ahold of an OBD 2 linkable program to change your maximum vehicle speed.
