Exclamation 1995 Aerostar trans problem

This is a 1995 Aerostar with a 3.0 liter V/6 and an auto overdrive.The problem I have is at steady speeds above 45 it is shifting from drive to overdrive for no reason.The trans fluid is good and it does not slip.

A4LD, those have an electronic shift control, they are basically a C3 with an overdrive added to the front of them. They are also electronically controlled lockup TC I think also. Does the speedometer and cruise both work?

That isn't the usual problem that occurs with them, but I think it is pretty common. Usually when they break they stop working when OD is selected, but when you start out and drive in D they are fine. I tracked down a few issues on one in an 89 or 90 Mustang 4 banger.

97 Mark VIII LSC/Silver/Gray leather
97 Cougar 4.6 Sport/White Opalescent Tricoat Metallic /Gray leather down but not out?
89 Cougar LS 3.8/Oxford White/Gray velour/HG need replaced AGAIN
00 Grand Marquis LS/Vibrant White/Gray velour
63 Falcon 302/black and rust/shed isn't moving
82 F-150/Oxford White/dumb VV carb doesn't pass emissions
