Yes!! unless you want lower gas mileage, and excessive wear on your engine and transmission..only take the Overdrive off if you are in a low traction situation...snow, ice, of off road terrain. Im the same person who left the answer to "programming keyless remotes on a '94 pathfinder" not registering for this damned page but i will be of any help i can to fellow Nissan "Pathy" owners..e-mail me at if you happen to be a hot chick definatly e-mail about your pathfinder It is a good idea to turn it off while towing ,, any automatic i drive with o/d seems to get MUCH better gas milage when just in drive if you're on back roads or going up hills. Maily because you don't have to put your foot into the pedal more to get it to kick out of overdrive once you already started losing speed going up a hill. i was getting 20mpg on an 87 IROC with 350 and auto tranny because of this method.

When you add software or programs to your computer, it will have less free space available than previously. Your hard drive has a fixed capacity, and you should always leave some free space available. As you add data, you should defragment the drive from time to time.
