I couldn't see what is posted above.

But, some transmissions will keep you out of OD (less common), or keep the torque converter unlocked (more common), until a certain engine temp is reached.

Is your engine always hot when you reach this hill?


Think you are saving gas? Prove it by starting a Gas Log, then conduct a proper experiment.

You might try shifting to neutral and then right back into D. I can get my 2004 Odyssey into 5th at 41mph instead of 45 by doing this.
