Overdrive

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

 

Driving this last weekend, my Overdrive was very sluggish at engaging, more so in the lower gears, and more so as the gearbox oil

gets warmer. Any ideas on quick fixes.

John,

Check the oil level in the gearbox.

Hi Guys

 

Just an update on my Overdrive not working. At last got round to removing the filter, which more or less blocked.

Changed the oil twice with a few miles in between. Now works fine.

 

Regards JohnR.

A few days ago my J type started dropping out when on the highway. I would be in OD 4th doing 70mph ish and it would randomly come out of overdrive. I checked the oil level today, had to add 200ml to fill it. Test drive did not have any issues but this thread has reminded me about the filter..
