Question about Ford Fairmont
There may be a ecm flash that would enable you to lower the 4th gear lockup, but why would you want to do this? Unless you are driving on extended level surfaces the lower speed would 'lug' the engine (not good) and it would probably use more gas-the dealer may be able to do this, using a Tech II or similar device, don't know if they would though. Your overdrive gear is for highway speeds, not around town driving-it's actually better for your trans converter not to go into lockup at low speeds, and is probably suggested in your owners manual to put the selector in '3' for exclusive around-town driving.
