yet another VS
My brothers auto hasnt been going into overdrive lately. It doesnt matter if the power button is on or off, it still wont go to overdrive so at 100km/hr its reving alot more than it would be in overdrive. What does this mean? Is the transmission on its way out, or is it a problem easily fixed? Has this happened to anyone else? cheers

converter lockup is electronically controlled, the ecu is a good place to look first
