I hope this topic hasn't been overdone, but I am desperate to get my transmission problems solved..I have owned the car for 5 years and I never get any closer to resolving my problem.
The cars overdrive stops working after about 10 minutes driving. It works great at first than it won't go into overdrive until it sets for maybe 5 minutes than it repeats the problem... I checked both transmission and overdrive unit for proper oil, than I replaced the relay switch with a new one,  I drove the car until it failed and pulled over to see if it got hot, and it did not but I checked the new solenoid  and it was really hot... Can anybody suggest what I should do or look for next... By the way I just got the car back from a complete transmission overhaul.  Thank you Don

There's another thread about overdrive problems that was started a few months ago, it has a lot of info that may help.
If you go back through the forum you can find it.
