The other day the OD went out. If placed in OD no gears (R D 1 2) will not work you must place it back to Park then R, D 2 1 works. I changed fluid and filter, no change. When I test drove it, I found I could drive it in D to 45 mph and changes gears to OD, it shifts and runs fine. It accelerates and when you slow down you must shift it back D at 45 to 40 mph to keep the vehicle moving when given gas. Would a band adjustment help? Am I hurting it by driving the way I did in the test drive? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
