The 89's, some might and most do not. Listen to the shifting, or feel the shifting. You will hear the rev's drop at around 80 klicks, or 50 or so mph.

On a 1997 Ford Expedition : It may not shift into overdrive until you are travelling around 50 MPH (80 Km/H) and you will see the RPM on the tachometer drop. * If the overdrive has been SWITCHED OFF using the switch on the end of the gearshift lever, then OFF will light up near the end of the gearshift lever.

When the overdrive button is pushed, the overdrive is shut OFF. ======================================================= But if you push the button again the overdrive is allowed , so it would be ON So , if you are on the highway or freeway where the speed is higher just look at the RPM on your tachometer to tell if you are in overdrive because the RPM will be lower

Answer Look in a plug catalog in any store that sells plugs and it will tell you. Also check under hood decal for this information. If your Tempo is a 2.3 litre. I believe the gap is.54.
