You cant really. I have a 1996 Mercury Villager LS 3.0L. The only thing that you notice is a bit less shakyness when shifting (automatic trans). Also the take off will be more smooth and you will feel like you are gettin more power at high speeds or a WOT (wide open throttle). If you mean physically in overdrive at the shifter, you can't. The quadrant is marked with only "D", "2" and, "1". You must assume that it will shift into overdrive when all conditions are met and the computer allows the trans to shift. If you mean how do you know when the trans has shifted into overdrive, there are two ways. First, count the shifts. For overdrive, there will be three shifts. Or, if yours is equiped with a tachometer, watch it for the shift points.

Anyplace that sells batteries can tell you the correct size you need.

Normally it is not the swaybar itself but the bushings. You have a set of two on each side of the car, an upper and lower. Fairly easy to do. About 8 bucks for each set.

One way would be to take the VIN number to a Ford dealer, they would be able to tell.
