I just checked my email and bigironram's response -- he says you don't
have to worry because the v6 didn't come with o/d which I didn't know
because the newest v6 I have is 88 which is standard trans
I am going to cc the newsgroup, because I don't know much about o/d. I
like dodge better myself too, but still kept my '77 gmc 350.
all I know is a solenoid responds to sudden boosts of energy, so I'm
guessing if the o/d is on, when you press the pedal to the metal, the
o/d solenoid is there to kick in the overdrive. I've only driven old
dodges where you have to push in the o/d when you want it off, and they
were all 3 spd -- never had an auto trans 4 spd -- sorry I can't help
with that part at all.
Maybe some of you guys out there can be more specific for him?
P.S. is the o/d working under normal conditions? also, you may want to
read thread "Overdrive switching in and out while towing" just in case
there is relevant info there for you
P.P.S., you will make lots of friends in this group if you ask nicely,
take their advice, and help who you can. They are a great group of
knowledgeable people I am lucky to have stumbled upon.
