1995 B2500 Van. Loses some power between 45 & 70 MPH. Why.
Gears change fine during uninterrupted acceleration all the way up to 70 MPH. For instance, entering the highway. It will maintain any speed once I get it there. But if I slow down (for example, from 65 down to 50) then try to speed up, the speed increases very slowly, way slower than it used to. It almost feels like it's in too high a gear. I have to release the gas pedal then give it gas for it to return to a lower gear, and I sometimes have to do it a few times before it works properly. It happens even with O/D off by the way. The only difference with O/D off is I may get a burning smell, mostly if I'm going up hill or the van is full of people, and especially if I'm doing both. It smells even if it's empty and going up a very steep incline at 35 MPH. My mechanic drove it and said nothing is wrong, but I know something has changed. Trans oil is in good shape, and doesn't smell, and the van has only 83500 mile on it. So here I am. Can anyone help?
