MY OVERDRIVE WILL NOT ENGAGE

1998 Mitsubishi Emeraude

Transmission problem
1998 Mitsubishi Emeraude 6 cyl Automatic 70000 miles

I drive with my overdrive off all the time and the car behaves well.

However, when I engage the overdrive the car will not change gears! It happened 3 months ago. I have not changed the gear fluid since I bought the car. I just made shure that is always up to the level. No leakage. What would you recommend me to do?

Should I attempt to change the fluid and clean the system?

Thanks,
