    Arrow 83 eldo probs

    hello i have a 83 eldo sence the day i purchased this car
    the passing gear has been really oversensitive so i just stay
    off the gas to keep it from shifting into passing gear too early
    and just lately its started to slip in and out of overdrive way
    too much at around 60-70+ mph

    any thoughts thanks

    You could have the kickdown adjusted.....But, It might be transmission time.

    thanks for the reply it has a lil hard shift when its cold other then that
    and the other 2 probs mentioned it seems good and smooth
    ill look into the kickdown suggestion im guessing thats for the
    oversensitive passing gear problem and i read somewhere i can
    stop the overdrive from kicking in till i can fig out the problem and it looks
    like at the brake pedal switch are there any other better places\ways to do this?

    thanks
