1992 240 auto trans

Post by 92240 » Tue Jun 05, 2018 6:41 pm

92 240 with auto trans does not feel like it is going into 4th gear. fuel mileage seems excessive. overdrive solenoid is hard wired to shifter wires, not a plug in like I've seen in parts pages. can hear click when button on shifter is pushed. any help is helpful thanks.

I removed the solenoid to inspect. it was flat across the bottom as if it were a block off plate.so I assume it would be just like having a block off plate.
