My 99 Silverado 1500 won't shift into overdrive

The check Engine light came on today when I was driving to work, from that point on it wouldn't shift into overdrive. I was running about 3000 RPM going 70 MPH.

    Mine is doing the same thing. I have not checked the overdrive fuse yet. Did a noise start from under the driver's feet. As soon as you slowed down the noise went away.

There is an overdrive fuse in the fuse compartment on the drivers side door panel, check and see if its blown, if it is there was some problems with the overdrive shift wire touches the bottom of the tranny pan, and can cause the fuse to blow out.

Car drives good but high rpm at 60 mph rpm is like 3000


Does your car have an overdrive or economy mode? 3000 is about right if you're going uphill at 60, your car is under heavy load or your not in overdrive. It could also be that your car hasn't shifted up to the next gear. On many automatics you can stomp on the gas pedal twice quickly, all the way to the floor, and that will make it up shift. Try that to see if that lowers the rpm's and gets it to shift up. If your car still wont up shift check the transmission fluid level with the car warmed up and running.

1995 chevy regular cab 4.3l v6 2wd wont go into overdrive


Sounds like it is stuck in second gear. Overdrive only drops rpm by a couple hundred. In third gears you should still be less than 3,000 rpm.

Second gear is a default gear when the transmission is in limp mode. Is the check engine light on? Does it shift if you manual shift through the gears with the gear selector?

Shifted fine changed motors now won't shift to drive or overdrive


check that you have connected correctly the cables for the torque converter solenoid / servo unit as it may not be making good contact after the engine change . Also as the battery was disconnected for a time I would use a scanner to reset the CPU program as the program may be corrupted from the lost battery power.

I have a 1991 Ford f150 with the 4.9 engine and 5-speed manual transmission. But the 5th gear only says overdrive. Can i drive in 4th gear at highway speeds without shifting to 5th?


Sure you can, It just makes the engine work a little harder. As long as your not running down the road at 3000 rpm's all the time, it will be fine
