    Sick Tranny?

    Hello to all I a new member but not a new reader.
    I have been reading threads for years.
    I have a 1995 SLS it wont go into overdrive I was on my way home and i thought the car died. I stepped on the gas and I took off like a rocket. It only has 72,000 miles.
    Does anyone know how to fix or how I can figure out what is wrong. I have only had it for 1 month.
    Thank you for any help Ridgey

    I don't understand. That's what it's supposed to do.

    Thanks Ranger for your reply. If you wanted to do 4 grand down the freeway its ok but it should do around 2 grand or so. It acks like it has a stall tork converter not wanted but cool.

    OH, It's over reving? Sounds like it's slipping badly.
