Hey scotty long story short i broke down north of LA had to get towed to a mechanic who replaced the transfer case adapter housing b/c the other one broke and also torssion bars and front u joints and performed a trans service such as replacing the filter.I live in san diego so i go back this last friday to pick up the truck he told me there were no more leaks and the truck ran great. The trucks seemed fine untill i got on the highway. I started to go highway speeds, but my rpms were way higher than normal. I called the dude up and he told me ohh well it's normal for your truck to be runing at 2450 rpms while going 70mph. Which i told him its not normal in the slighest and said norm rpms is about 1800 rpms give or take. He then tried to compare his corolla to my truck saying ohh 2000 rpms is normal my car goes that much on the highway(usully i would hit 2000 rpms at 85mph give o r take). He also said i was wrong and said ohh well your truck has big tires and is not made to go on the highway. Thats a dumb statement b/c i been driving this truck non stop since i got it in 2014 and never had a high rpm problem such as this. Also i still have a leak. So anyways Scotty i wondering if you had a hint as to why my overdrive gear doesnt drop into lower rpms on the highway now. I kinda feel as if im going to bust my enigne cuase to go highway speeds my rpms go pretty high for a diesel.

yeah for a diesel the rpms should be lower. I think the transmission is not kicking into overdrive.
