damaged catalytic converter can cause misfires. Indeed it could, but I would also check and/or replace the coil packs as needed.

Overdrive is the normally allowed position . It won't shift into overdrive until the speed is fast enough anyway , but if you are going up and down hills and the transmission keeps downshifting you might as well turn the overdrive feature off until you are out of the hills Just adding to the answer : Also if you are towing something you want to shut off the overdrive

What is the overdrive for on a 1993 Lincoln town car?

Overdrive is the normally allowed position on your 1993 Lincoln Town Car . It is the " fourth gear " of your automatic transmission that allows the engine to run at a lower RPM when you are on the highway / freeway You get better gas mileage and the transmission will run cooler , so it's a good thing

Can you bypass the overdrive button to put an aftermarket automatic shifter on a 93 Lincoln Mark VIII?

Never heard of anyone doing it. It is possible t relocate the overdrive button, but not bypass it. When tarted the transmission has the overdrive on in default mode you can turn t off with the button but once you shut the car off and turn it back on the overdrive will be on again. On my B&M shifter i drilled a small hole in the side of the plastic base and mounted the button there works like a charm.

What does the D in a circle with a bar through it mean on the warning lights of a 2003 Lincoln navigator?

That indicates that the Overdrive ( for the transmission ) has been turned OFF using the transmission control switch on your shift lever ( either push the button again to turn the overdrive on or the next time the vehicle is shut off and then restarted , the normally allowed overdrive position will be enabled and the light will go off )

The odometer on my 2000 Lincoln navigator will not always illuminate. Sometimes it will not come on until I drive a few miles. the radio and clock illumination will go out also?

The 2000 Lincoln Navigator most likely suffers from the same intermittent odometer problem that has plagued many Ford vehicles (1999 - 2003 F150, F250, F350, Expedition, and Explorer). Lincoln Navigators have also been suspected of having the same problem. It would be helpful if a Navigator owner could confirm that the same problem does exist in the Navigator. iSee the following site for a discussion of the intermittent odometer problem. . I'm another owner confirming same problem. I have a 2001 Lincoln Navigator with same problem.

What do I do when my 1993 Lincoln MarkVIII has no overdrive and the care overheats and leaks small amount of coolant from firewall next to Accumulator but is not where the heater core hoses lines run?

With the overdrive, if it was working and just quit, probably the wire in the shifter. As for the leak you will just have to trace. Maybe the coolant is running under the hose and at the lowest point is dropping where you see it. Sorry couldn't help much.
