Towing with AOD??

I have an 88 f-150/302/AOD. When towing a trailer should i stay in overdrive as with normal driving or shift into drive...Different trailers ranging from 3000 to about 5200lbs, mostly highway miles.

Thanks for any input..

Towing with AOD??

If it keeps shifting in and out of OD when there is a slight grade, leave it out. If it holds most of the trip, keep it there. When the tranny keeps up/down shifting is when you need to leave it out of OD.

Primary rig is Green Thunder:
95' F-150 XLT 4x4, 302, 5 spd, MSD 6A, Flowmaster American Thunder Exhaust, Sunroof, Clear corners w/ Diamond headlights, CD player with 2 10" subs and some 32" BFG Muds .

Check out my Gallery for a look-see.

Then theres:
99' Mustang GT 4.6L
88' F-250 Superduty 4x4 351/c6
95' Mercury Cougar 4.6L V-8
80' E-350 300/6 with a
3 spd column shifter. Top speed is 65mph, Go Baby Go!
