I drive a 97 auto. Today when i was riding down the high way, i noticed that no matter how hard i push down on the gas, the car only slowly climbs, it won't go over 4000 (this is going 40 - 60 mph) and once i got to 65mph the rpm still sits at 4 grand. normally, on the last gear it should be mid 2's at 65 mph. so i pulled over and i noticed my O/D OFF light is blinking!!! Does anyone know what that means? it blinked for about 10 sec and stopped. So i shut my engine completely off for about 3 minutes and fired it back up and everything was fine. Anyone know what this is about? (O/D light was the only light that's on, engine light was off the whole time)

thank you very much for your help!

From a dead stop and you accelerate, are you going through all the gears (1,2,3,4) properly?

On my old Camry, the tranny would stay in 1st like normal, shift into 2nd and immediately jump to 3rd. So my old camry would not stay in gear in 2nd and I would be accelerating like a turtle in 3rd.

deadrx7conv is very good with tranny questions.
