On moderate acceleration, if I stop accelerating at 40 mph, the tranny seems not to be able to decide whether to shift into overdrive or not. I just had snows put on last week also. Are the two factors related? If not, what do I have looked at on the tranny?

    What is the condition of the transmission fluid? Have you had the transmission serviced? It could be the condition of the fluid, flushing may help. It could also be the start of a bigger internal problem with the transmission.
