Odd shift into and out of overdrive

This may not be an issue but is irritating. I travel approx. 15 miles a day each way on a flat, relatively no hills, 2 lane hwy running in between 50 and 60 MPH. When the tranny shifts into overdrive around 50 to 55 it kind of feels like it slips and then catches solidly, like fffffffflop. In addition, is it normal for it to downshift when letting off the pedal slightly and then getting back on the pedal slightly just to maintain a distance between the vehicle in front? it seems to do this downshift and then ffffflop back in frequently during this drive while maintaining this 50 to 60 mph speed.

thanks for any feedback...

Re: Odd shift into and out of overdrive

I cant comment on how your tc feels when it locks but it is normal for it to unlock anytime you let up on the throttle. Annoying as hell and not an issue with custom tunes.

yes, that is normal for a solenoid ran transmission, just watch out for very slow shifting or slipping.

Odd shift into and out of overdrive

I hate that too. When I let off the gas and get back on, even lightly, it will downshift for a second or two and go right back into overdrive. Really annoying!
