On a 2000 Lincoln Navigator, the car has history of hot

Customer Question
Hello, on a 2000 Lincoln...
Hello, on a 2000 Lincoln Navigator, the car has history of hot transmission on highway drive. I refill 2 quarts of transmission fluid 'till the correct range at dipstick and took for a ride. I can't figure out if the vehicle is shifting overdrive so I put attention on the RPMs and I've noticed 70MPH exactly 2000RPMs which I think is High for a V8. Noticed also the transmission shift knob overdrive button stuck inside and won't move, but the overdrive OFF light is not lit at the shifter knob.
Any thoughts or common problems in this case?
Thanks

Hey how are you

You added 2 quarts t it ,is there leak exist ?

the fact O/D not light means no over drive so i m sure after 70 is going if you stay on it rpm will keep rising and not shift

have you checked all fuses inside and outside cab ?

what is the mileage on it now ,is there any prior trans work done ?

check engine light on at this time ?

do you have ford scanner to scan pcm .

Please let me know

Thank You

I am doing good< thanks for asking!
There are no DTC's stored. After fluid adjusted and everything cleaned up, I had this vehicle idling for 30 minutes and no leaks detected. Something isn't right with highway speed
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Actually on Ford, when you push the overdrive button, it light up O/D OFF, so then no overdrive

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you may be seeing a transmission temperature warning. If that's the case it could be a temperature sensor issue, a trans cooling system problem, or the fluid may be overheating from transmission slip.

You opted out the person helping, preventing further communication. Did you no longer need help?
