Um, why are you engaging OD at 40 mph? In 4th gear that would drop your RPM
down to what, 1500? No wonder it bucks. I don't engage OD until I am going
over 60 mph. Remember, in OD the engine has very little "mechanical
advantage" -- it's not going to accelerate well from low RPM.
What happens if you refrain from switching into OD until 60mph -- any
