    I'm not exactly looking for jobs to do on the Ex, but I want to know if i've got a developing problem.

    1997 4.0 SOHC

    So this is what I'm seeing.

    With the OD off, cruising in top gear (about 50mph) I can feel the 1:1 clutch engage (which is good) and if I increase throttle the 1:1 holds and it accellerates.

    if I lift off and coast, say down hill, the 1:1 clutch disengages, the revs drop and you do get engine braking. Should the clutch disengage?

    when I resume the throttle and then lift off a little the 1:1 clutch again engages.

    normal operation?

    cheers

    The torque converter (1:1 clutch) disengages when you leave off the gas, it will also disengage if you tap the brake peddle. Sounds normal to me.
