Default What speed does yours go into overdrive.

My 96 has been going into overdrive about 50 - 52 mph while the SSE goes in @ 62-65mph.
Could I need a TV cable adjustment?
What speed does yours go in?

I've had mine in OD at a dead stop before...oh wait, you're talking about an automatic, carry on... Actually, since I have such short gearing, I can be in 5th at around 20mph, it will be revving around 850rpm. But my moms SSEi shifts into OD in the mid 40'*. My sisters '93 Olds 88 goes into OD at 48.

Normally around 48 or so. There are a few roads here tho, like the onle on the way to work that it wont happen until 52 and then there is onother that it goes in at 42. When it goes in at 42 the RPMS drop really low, like 1200-1300.
