when accelerating, cannot get the car to go over 40mph,and the transmission will not shift. There is an arrow light on, on the dashboard, when turning turbo on, cannot tell if the turbo engine is on, except for the fact it will go to 45mph.
Overdrive would normally kick on at 45 mph but at times its will not shift into overdrive and if I try to use the overdrive button to turn overdrive off and back on overdrive won't work so I have to turn off my car to reset it to make it work. Is this an overdrive solenoid issue? Or Overdrive relay?
