Hi!!

Check fluid level and color. It should be of a pinkish color and also check for a burnt smell. If one of them fail, Service transmission (change fluid and filter).

If fluid looks good but last servece was performed more than 3,000 miles, Service Transmission.

Get a bottle of RISLONE Transmission stop slip and sealant, I get it at AutoZone for about $12, add it to the transmission fluid. That stuff works good. I use it all the time.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

Sorry question came out wrong don't know why. I have a 1993 ranger 4.0 auto. When you try to take off on overdrive whont go, if you put in drive shifts fine then you shift into overdrive works OK. You...


If it seems to still be in overdrive when you come to a stop, the brake light switch has an electric cut out switch incorporated in it to shut off power to the trans/overdrive to kick it out of OD. If this switch is malfunctioning, it can cause this problem your having.

How many times does a transmission supposed to shift starting from drive in a 1988 dodge ram with a 318 motor


Depends if you have a regular 3 speed automatic, or a 3 speed with overdrive.
Put it in drive, it will start out in first gear, then shift into second at about 15 MPH, into third at about 30-35 MPH. With overdrive, fourth gear will kick in at about 45-55MPH.

Car will not shift into overdrive


As a response to solution #1 these cars do have an overdrive while in D-4, mine was shifting in and out at 70 mph until it finally quit and the rpm is now 3100 at 70 mph insted of 2700. The car still shifts 4 full times just not the fifth-OD. I still can't find out what fixes this problem either.

Overdrive factors


When the car is just cruising along at approx.50+ MPH push the O/D button. You should feel the gears change higher and if you have an RPM guage then it should drop as well to fewer RPMs. This would be normal driving conditions. O/D will not kick in until the last regular gear (3rd or 4th depending on model)  had been shifted into. O/D automatically kicks out when slowing down and the transmission shifts to a lower gear. Thus the O/D has no function at slower speeds/gears and does not need to be shifted ( on or off ) except in the very first example given here.
