    my 1976 j10 jeep will not get overdrive when speed is over 40 mph why?

    im having problems with my j10 jeep shifting into overdrive or better known as passing gear...when going up a hill goes all the way down to about 30 to shift to passing gear. it does shift well into all gears except when i floor it, it just gains speed. it has a 360 with automatic trans...help plz

    Is the fluid level correct and color look good? Did you use the correct weight oil?
    Could you confirm if this is a 727 trans?

    overdrive is not the same as passing gear.
