93 lincoln with 4.6 liter auotmatic o/d problem

an hour south of here in the rain in stop and go traffic my trans, when we are finally able to go 50 mph starts cycling between third and fourth gear, back and forth, like it's gonna blow up. after about a half hour later, by the time i got to a ford dealer, i was able to give it a rest for about two hours cause they were closed. when i got back in it, i just found out from them that there is a on/off button for the overdrive on the shifter lever. i get in and head back home and for the next hour and a half, with the o/d in OFF, the car drives fine. nobody seems to know what happened. i think the trans is still probably not long for this world. i know the trans wasnt happy going 50 mph in o.d. and can understand why, but the trans mech down the street says it still shouldnt have done that. he says the car could go 5,ooo miles, or it could go five miles. i was headed for reno, 1000 miles south. trip cancelled. anybody know what this means if different from the above, (which basically is: i don't know squat)

I'm no expert either, but I'll venture forth...

The OD on the transmission simply locks the torque convertor. There is a switch that controls the operation and I think it's on the transmission.

Should not be expensive to fix, but in the case of my '95 Marquis with 170,XXX miles, I entrust the transmission care to a local transmission shop. With proper and learned maintaince there is no reason your tranny would not live nearly forever.

Bull,
When the tranny is in overdrive mode the computer tells the tranny to "hunt" for the highest gear possible..of course every little hill or bump the tranny kicks down to get over..Soooo just turn the OD off and it won't do that..Mine will do that in some road conditions..works fine at higher speeds and on flatt ground..that has happened to me..was acommon complaint when those OD tranny's first came out..

OMT

well, that's just it. after it cooled off, or whatever it did for a couple hours. and then ran perfectly home with the o.d. off and even with it on at over 65mph, we get to this hill with "od on" with dry pavement and at about 30mph it hiccouphs, so it scared me. i thought it was with od off, but my wife just told me it was on. maybe we could be on our way to reno now. suckee.

TOOK TO THE TRANS SHOP and they say it's not the tranny, that the engine in missing. but i looked under the hood, IT'S RIGHT THERE!
okay, haha. so, the check engine light doesnt come on either. nothing. we'll try to stick it on the computer tomorrow at 10am and see. my bud has a set of plug wires at his house.
