sounds like you burned out some bands. i would take it in and have it checked before you burn out the others. I would also have a tranny radiator/cooler put on. This will sve your tranny if your engine ever overheats. By the way, has your engine overheated in the past 6 months to a year. If so then I know its your bands.

Anyone with problems with 1997 Ford truck overdrive?

I have a 1997 ford e 350 van with automatic transmission when the transmission shifts form 3rd gear to overdrive at about 50-55 mph it falters and bucks and I have to let off on the gas so it can pick-up speed, when I have overdrive off and put on overdrive when 3rd gear shifts to overdrive at 50-55 mph it shifts smoother but if I give too much gas again it bucks and falters till I let off gas so it can retain speed slowly.

On a 1994 Mazda 626 How do get the button on the shifter to switch back over to automatic from overdrive it is stuck in overdrive and when you push the button it won't switch back?

The button does not switch from Overdrive to Automatic. The button just turns the overdrive off. Overdrive is not a separate drive system as your question implies. Normally you leave the car in overdrive mode. That way the transmission shifts into overdrive at highway speeds, thus saving fuel. If you are saying the transmission is stuck in overdrive and it will not disengage then seek out a A/T professional.

If it shifts smothly into the gears before o/d it is not the cable.

Why doesn't the light come on when I push the button to turn it on or put it in overdrive?

May just be the bulb, first see if you are getting into 4th gear. Your freeway rpms will tell you if you can't feel the shifts. If it is higher than normal, you are only in 3d.

Do you need overdrive at city driving?

Overdrive is the normally allowed position , but unless you are going fast enough it will not shift into overdrive because it acts as the " top " gear ( on my Explorer I have to be going 50 miles per hour / 80 kilometers per hour before it shifts into overdrive )

Why does the 2001 ford escorts have two d's on the shift panel?

The " D " with a circle around it ( next to the neutral " N " position ) is the overdrive position . That is the normal position when driving the vehicle , it allows the transmission to shift into the fourth gear ( an overdrive gear ) when you are crusing at a higher speed . When it shifts into overdrive your engine won't rev as high , your gas mileage will be better etcetera

What are some of the reasons a 1991 Toyota Tercel automatic won't shift into overdrive?

My friends car did the same exact thing. It could be your transmission sensor. I am not exactly sure what the sensor is called but it has to do with the way it shifts. Overdrive sensor maybe?

Your 1989 dodge ram d250 van will not shift into overdrive what should you check?

Overdrive should be ran by electrical ,so check your fuses . If that's not it check wiring that runs to transmission.You will have to get under the vehicle . There is an electrical switch that shifts the trans into overdrive , that is your next step . If you have a owners manual in the glove box it should tell you which fuse runs the overdrive circuit .Hope this helps . Rick

Is the overdrive supposed to stay on all of the time on a 2005 Hyundai accent?

I have a 2002 Accent with the overdrive button. The owners manual suggests that the switch should be engaged to have overdrive on all the time. However, I have found that since I do a great deal of stop and go driving the transaxle shifts and performs better with the overdrive off. The car isn't trying to put itself into overdrive every two seconds and makes for a smoother drive. Again this is mostly for heavier stop and go driving.

Is there a switch to turn on overdrive in a 1995 Mercury Tracer or is it in transmission itself?

According to the 1995 Tracer's Owner Guide (page 241): Overdrive is the usual driving position for an automatic overdrive transaxle(transmission). It works the same way D (Drive) works, AUTOMATICALLY upshifting or downshifting as the vehicle speeds or slows. However, Overdrive also shifts into a fourth gear (an overdrive gear) when your vehicle cruises at a consistent speed for any length of time (like on the Interstate). Overdrive will increase your fuel economy when you are traveling at cruise speeds (usually 50mph or higher). But, Overdrive may not be appropriate for certain terrain such as hilly or mountainous roads because the transaxle (transmission) automatically shifts back and forth between 3rd and 4th gears while doing this type of driving. Therefore, it is recommended if your car is continously climbing hills/mountains (which requires additional power) then you should shift to D (Drive).

How can you tell when a 1997 Mercury Villager is in Overdrive?

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.

Why does a 1995 dodge 2500 diesel will not stay in overdrive unless you let of the fuel pedal when you step back on the fuel pedal it down shifts?
