So...

On my Bonne, which is a '93 SE... Should I use D or OD? I do a lot of driving around 40-50. Thanks for the clarification on the other stuff, though, jr

I would use D to keep the TCC from going crazy, but any speed over 55 use OD

if your at like 55mph+ and manually downshift it might be bad..... but if your in 3(D) you can go into D(OD) at anytime

Okay, just for clarification: I have 1,2,D, and then (D), in that order, from left to right. D is Drive, while (D) is Overdrive... right?

Kyle you'll be fine bud... The 4T60-E was a large improvement over the older 1987-1991 bonneville units... 92-97ish will do about the same depending on the gear ratio...

Kyle is that SE a loded SE or is it plane jane? Does it run about 1500 at 50-55?
