    Aod transmission no OD

    Car shifts into over drive and it's like a second neutral. Will switching filter and fluid have any chance of saving the overdrive band? The fluid is a faded red that smells burnt. The car has a stock gear ratio and motor ,so will it be fine to just drive without overdrive for a long period of time?

    Anyone installed a wing like this with their luggage rack? I want to put on my 88 LX vert. Do you remove the last set of rails? If so, does this cover the holes? or does it mount onto the rails?
