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).
First the gear could be out. The other issue could be with the linkage itself in the transmission thus it won't go into overdrive.
It is actually inside the transmission itself. You get to it be removing the transmission pan.
Take it in. There is either a problem with your transmission or with the overdrive switch itself. Overdrive switch should be a lot cheaper to fix. I'm assuming the light not only goes on, but the overdrive physically turns off as well when the light is on.
About 1.5hrs labor at the going rate, plus about 22usd for the belt itself.
The filter is actaully located inside of the transmission itself.....you would have to remove the transmission and tear it apart to get to the filter
typically above the brake pedal a large bar that goes to the master cylinder pushes a button. if not there then somewhere on the master cylinder itself. -mechanic for 7+ years
There is no OD relay. All transmission shift functions are controled by the vehicle's PCM, using shift solenoids in the transmssion itself.
mercury is an element itself!!
Mercury is a planet itself, and it does not have any planets to it.
It should indeed stand for Electronic Controlled Transmission. It will basically make the transmission delay shifting until the engine revs higher, giving you a bit more power. There should also be a button on the gear selector itself that probably turns on and off the overdrive, as described below. Of course the problem with running your car in ECT mode, means you will be using more gas. This is either the Overdrive button or the Traction Control button. On this car, I think this stands for Electronic Controlled Transmission, which means it turns the overdrive on an off. While traveling at 50 mph push the button. If you hear and see the engine rpms go up on the tach, this is the overdrive button.
Mercury is itself a planet - it did not come from a planet!
The real reason it is able to shift down or up is to save wear and tear on the system if it is doing this randomly the fluid may be low or bad or the unit itself is in need of repair
Yes, you can crack the transmission pan before damaging the transmission.
Mercury is pitted with craters because Mercury has almost no atmosphere to protect itself.
I had the same problem with my '92 camaro 3.1 V6. Take your car to a transmission specialist, and he can throw a diagnostic pad on it. On mine, my entire transmission and torque converter were fried. Cost me $1000.
no mercury doesn't burn as it doesn't have the capacity to burn or burn itself
on the side of the transmission itself.
No planet "surrounds" Mercury. All the planets except Mercury itself lie outside the orbit of Mercury, if that's what you meant.
Overdrive is the normally allowed position If the vehicle is shut off and then restarted , the overdrive will be allowed To turn off the overdrive feature , the button on the end of your gear selector has to be pushed and the O/D OFF light comes on in your dash ( if you push the button again the O/D OFF light will go out and the overdrive feature is allowed )
Mercury is an element itself, like nickel, gold, iron etc.
It is in the transmission itself.
Under the car, on the transmission itself
Transmission fluid is contained in the transmission itself, there is no separate reservoir.
Generally this can be done by adjusting the cable at the handle itself. Probably a nut that needs to be loosened to pull some slack out and re-tighten. However, if it has a lot of slack then the cable is probably shot, or the rear brakes need to be repaired.
Behind the head light itself. is a plastic ring, this screws to the housing around the element. Unscrew it,pull the element out of the head light bezel, unplug the element and install the new one. screw it all back together. you will need no tools.
