Obviously, the purpose of the OD is to keep engine RPMs down, to save gas. And it down shifts when you press the gas, because it needs the extra bit of torque to keep it moving, otherwise, it would feel like driving a manual in 4th gear all the time

Make sure your TV cable is adjusted properly.

OD should only be used when you're cruising along at speeds greater than 45-50 mph or so (depending on your gear ratio and tire size).

If you're giving it more gas to go faster then accelerate in 3rd then shift into OD manually.

If you're already in OD and mash the pedal to the floor then of course it's going to downshift automaticly! :twak

Hence the " A-U-T-O-M-A-T-I-C " transmission.

I really don't get why there's so many people that don't understand the concept of "overdrive". :shrug

It's just another gear people! :twak
