1997 Ford Pickup trans wouldn’t go into overdrive

Transmission wouldn’t Go into Overdrive to pull the Siskiyou Summit. made it to exit @7 in Medford sounded like a ran over a long cattle gtate. Sounded terrible.

A) I would suspect you should not have been in OD approaching the summit.
B) Sounds like you now need to take it to a good independent transmission shop.
