It's not recommended to use overdrive on a constant base. It stresses too much the engine as well as transmission.
You should leave the car in overdrive at all times, unless driving conditions dictate otherwise. The overdrive is intended to optimize fuel consumption.
Before You leave Besaid find the Dog and talk to it, it should give you a ball of sorts, then you get the overdrive.
job done...motor comes out the top, leave the trans in place.
That means you are either in overdrive or you have a defect in the dash lights that is turning on your overdrive light. Wiki can explain what overdrive is better than I can, but it's not a bad thing. You should probably just leave your vehicle in overdrive for better fuel economy.
For everyday use leave overdrive ON. When/if you tow a trailer, turn overdrive OFF.
All you have to do is unplug the battery for about 10 minutes. That will reset the system, then drive the car or leave it idle for about 15 minutes. If it comes on again, then you have a problem and you should do a diagnostic test.
NO, leave the overdrive on. Only turn it off when pulling a heavy load or in a mountainous area. Overdrive improves your fuel economy.
Overdrive really wont affect you in a town or city, so you can just leave it on. On the highway, it helps reduce the strain on your engine, so just keep it on all the time.
yes. it will only shift into overdrive when it is needed.
Overdrive is the normally allowed position Until you are travelling around 50 MPH / 80 KPH it won't shift into overdrive anyway If you are towing something , or driving in hilly country where the transmission is always downshifting , then you can shut the overdrive off and the O/D OFF light will light up in your dash
if it is an automatic leave it in overdrive. the transmission knows when to change into the overdrive gear. if it is a manual listen to the motor. if you have in overdrive and it bogs down while accelerating then down shift to a lower gear.
Overdrive is the normal position - if you are in hilly areas and find the transmission keeps shifting back and forth between overdrive and drive , you can use the overdrive cancel switch to shut off the overdrive feature and if you are towing something you also want to shut off the overdrive
why does the 1991 Lincoln towncars transmission not have overdrive?Instead of going into overdrive it seems to go into neutral.But if you take it out of overdrive and leave it in drive it never goes into neutral while I'm driving.
1992 Toyota what? Corolla, Camry, Celica, Tacoma, etc. And what size engine. Not to be harsh, but how do you expect an answer when you leave out critical information, and even put the question in the wrong place.I moved the question to the Toyota section and I will answer when you provide enough information.
How do you fix the automatic headlight shutoff feature on a 1990 Toyota Camry? Answer If the headlights no longer shut off when you close the door, there's a relay which needs to be replaced. IIRC, it's in the fuse/breaker box under the hood, near the battery. It happened to me once (I leave the lights on all the time for safety) and replacing the relay fixed the problem. I don't remember exactly which relay it was, but it was clear from the wiring diagram, and there's a label on the inside of the relay box that also indicates which relay is the headlamp control. Where is the fuse for the windows located on a Toyota Camry?
Overdrive switch. push it and it will say o/d off. If you want good milage on highway leave it on, if you want more zippyness turn it off.
You should never replace a pan if there is no defect such as,leak,crack,major dents ect. If its not leaking you should leave it alone!
you may have your brake light socket and your back up light socket in the wrong holes. Or you have a short but that would probably leave you with a blown fuse and no lights.
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.
The button turns the Overdrive on and off. Leave it on unless you are towing something.
Sorry, it has to be done by the dealer or you need to buy the gauge yourself. My Suggestion: Remove battery terminal (pos or neg, doesnt matter) leave for 10 min, reconnect, see if gone
Leave OD on during regular condition driving to conserve fuel economy. Turn off OD to accelerate better and when climbing hills.
You should leave the overdrive on all the time. If it is off there will be a od off light that will come on the dash. The trans. will know when to shift into and out of od. Unless you are going down a steep long hill and need engine braking so you don't have to brake as much or pulling heavy loads.
Leave it in o/d . The trans. will work just fine.
