700r4 Overdrive Problem

The transmission will not stay in overdrive.It will go into overdrive if the car is going up a slight grade,but shifts back into third if on straight and level or slight downgrade.Anyone....Ideas....I have changed the fluid and filter twice.?????

Re: 700r4 Overdrive Problem

Your system runs on both the ECM and Vaccuum Pressure, if I'm not mistaken
It will kick out of over-drive and lock-up when the engine is under load
It will only stay in over-drive under easy-load situations, mostly, on flat stretches
Changing the fluids will not help

What year is your buggy?

No I thought it might be something internal.
