Default No Overdrive after being serviced @ Toyota

I just had my 2002 Camry serviced where they flushed my transmission fluid,
replaced the waterpump, cleaned the throttle body. The car only has 74K
miles and runs great. Before I took the car in, my OD was working fine and I
was getting around 29 MPG. I got 21 MPG and noticed that the car has a high
RPM when at 60 MPH. I pushed the OD button on the shifter and it downshifted
to 2nd gear. That was just weird. So what I did was stop, turned off the OD
and took off. The car never went into 3rd gear and the RPM was just way too
high. I went ahead and pushed the OD button and it finally went into 3rd
gear but never into 4th/OD.

Can someone please give me an idea if the Toyota service department did
something to the car causing it to not work anymore. I've read some articles
that there are all kinds of sensors that affect the OD. Please help.

Replacing the fluid is one thing but flushing the transmission is another
story. The latter has the potential to cause a problem and it looks as if
you got bit. Don't ask if they caused a problem--go back to the Dealer and
say they did.

Very good.

Now, what engine and what transmission?

So people will know if their experience applies directly to you, and
others will know if your experience applies directly to them.
