Question about 1988 Chevrolet Celebrity
Posted by Anonymous on
First, check your fluid level and quality and transmission throttle linkage adjustment.
The torque converter clutch solenoid may be hanging when it gets hot. Find the connector on the transaxle, unplug it and put some kind of cover on it to keep dirt out of the connector. If the problem goes away, that's your problem. However, you will see a significant reduction in gas mileage.
It could also be as you surmise, that it's getting stuck in overdrive. You can test this by shifting into the highest gear before Overdrive, instead of Overdrive, before the car gets warmed up (observe engine RPM limits). Once again, you're sacrificing gas mileage to test for the problem.
