confused AOD tranny

I have an 87' thunderbird with an AOD and a 5.0. The AOD will only go into the first two gears. Any reasons why it won't go into overdrive. The cable to the throttle seems to be working ok. Is there a fuse to the lock-up torque converter?

No fuse. The 3rd and OD are separate from the convertor lockup. None of them are electric on an AOD. Sounds like it lost a Forward clutch or something internal.

Overhaul time

Is there an adjustment on the cable? I think the bushings are worn out on the cable lever. Would that make it not shift? Thanks

The cable is adjustable. The adjustment is on the engine side. Near the throttle body. There is a bushing there that does go bad. You should replace it with a bronze bushing. They are available from Ford.

The adjustment only changes the pressure. If you don't have enough the trans. will shift sooner, have no kick down and burn it self up. If the cable is too tight it will shift later and harder. But, it will shift. Also, too tight won't burn the trans. up.

Sounds like you already have an internal trans. problem.

Sorry...
