If a 1995 Suburban shifts smoothly from 1st to 2nd but does not shift from 3rd or overdrive yet shifts smoothly back and runs normal what could be wrong?

sounds like you burned out some bands. i would take it in and have it checked before you burn out the others. I would also have a tranny radiator/cooler put on. This will sve your tranny if your engine ever overheats. By the way, has your engine overheated in the past 6 months to a year. If so then I know its your bands.

this could be alot of things, you need to take to a tranny shop and let them drive it for a diaignosis.

My 1984 corvette transmission is not shifting into overdrive. It shifts first thru third fine.

I have a 1997 ford e 350 van with automatic transmission when the transmission shifts form 3rd gear to overdrive at about 50-55 mph it falters and bucks and I have to let off on the gas so it can pick-up speed, when I have overdrive off and put on overdrive when 3rd gear shifts to overdrive at 50-55 mph it shifts smoother but if I give too much gas again it bucks and falters till I let off gas so it can retain speed slowly.

The " D " with a circle around it ( next to the neutral " N " position ) is the overdrive position . That is the normal position when driving the vehicle , it allows the transmission to shift into the fourth gear ( an overdrive gear ) when you are crusing at a higher speed . When it shifts into overdrive your engine won't rev as high , your gas mileage will be better etcetera

If you are on a highway maintaining over 45 mph. OK, but If vehicle continually shifts in and out of overdrive you are better off leaving it in 3rd

Overdrive is the normally allowed position , but unless you are going fast enough it will not shift into overdrive because it acts as the " top " gear ( on my Explorer I have to be going 50 miles per hour / 80 kilometers per hour before it shifts into overdrive )

If it shifts smothly into the gears before o/d it is not the cable.

The button does not switch from Overdrive to Automatic. The button just turns the overdrive off. Overdrive is not a separate drive system as your question implies. Normally you leave the car in overdrive mode. That way the transmission shifts into overdrive at highway speeds, thus saving fuel. If you are saying the transmission is stuck in overdrive and it will not disengage then seek out a A/T professional.

May just be the bulb, first see if you are getting into 4th gear. Your freeway rpms will tell you if you can't feel the shifts. If it is higher than normal, you are only in 3d.

four wheel drive low ========================================================= I know that on my Ford EXPLORER the automatic transmission shifts into overdrive around ( 50 miles per hour / 80 kilometers per hour )

User Avatar

Mine has the same problem. The transmission guy said not to worry about it.

User Avatar

First you need to have a feeling of where the vibration is comming from(tranny,tires,etc).

User Avatar

My friends car did the same exact thing. It could be your transmission sensor. I am not exactly sure what the sensor is called but it has to do with the way it shifts. Overdrive sensor maybe?

User Avatar

How about it shifts into 4 overdrive gears are higher so RPMs come down.

Overdrive should be ran by electrical ,so check your fuses . If that's not it check wiring that runs to transmission.You will have to get under the vehicle . There is an electrical switch that shifts the trans into overdrive , that is your next step . If you have a owners manual in the glove box it should tell you which fuse runs the overdrive circuit .Hope this helps . Rick

You cant really. I have a 1996 Mercury Villager LS 3.0L. The only thing that you notice is a bit less shakyness when shifting (automatic trans). Also the take off will be more smooth and you will feel like you are gettin more power at high speeds or a WOT (wide open throttle). If you mean physically in overdrive at the shifter, you can't. The quadrant is marked with only "D", "2" and, "1". You must assume that it will shift into overdrive when all conditions are met and the computer allows the trans to shift. If you mean how do you know when the trans has shifted into overdrive, there are two ways. First, count the shifts. For overdrive, there will be three shifts. Or, if yours is equiped with a tachometer, watch it for the shift points.

I have a 2002 Accent with the overdrive button. The owners manual suggests that the switch should be engaged to have overdrive on all the time. However, I have found that since I do a great deal of stop and go driving the transaxle shifts and performs better with the overdrive off. The car isn't trying to put itself into overdrive every two seconds and makes for a smoother drive. Again this is mostly for heavier stop and go driving.

First of all...auto or manual? Also, why was the question asked as if overdrive is it's own gear? Check your fuses first, but with lack of detail there is no definite answer at this time.
