That's only a 4-speed auto, but top gear is still 0.73:1 overdrive, compared to the 6-speed auto in Gen 2 vans but they appear to be about 0.746:1 in 6th gear (I can't find a definitive answer on the TC2 6F-35, so that ratio is from the Lincoln MKZ 6F-35, which should at least be close). Sounds to me like maybe your van isn't shifting into 4th gear overdrive.

Go to ford.com and download a manual for your TC and you will have all the stats you need. 

I would say that the Transmission is not going into 4 th gear.  The Gen 1 I drove but did not buy had to be revved up to perform but it definitely had longer legs that the one you have.

Keep us posted on what happens.

It sounds like the transmission downshifted, as if you were passing another vehicle.  Then it stays in a lower gear, instead of shifting back to overdrive.

Is you overdrive off light on your dash? Sounds like overdrive is off. click the small button in the side of the shifter handle to turn it on
