WOW sounds like if its a automatic tranny you have a transmission problem. Probably to late to check the tranny fluid. Damage probably already done an you need to replace the transmission

Should you drive around town with the gear shift located in overdrive instead of drive?

when ur driving in the city it is adviced to put gears in drive rather than in overdrive position..the reason being overdrive is a system that allows your gears or drivetrain to use the lowest gears /ratio for fuel saving cruising, with it off , it holds to a higher gear ratio so you have more power and torque to tow or climb hills..but it prooves to be horrible while driving in the city..

My 1999 Chevy Blazer is stuck in 4Lo how do i get it out and back into 2Hi?

You have to be stopped with the transmission in neutral when you shift in or out of low 4 wheel drive. Park doesn't work as neutral. When you push the rocker switch up for high 4 wheel drive once you will be in high 4 wheel drive, push it again for high 2 wheel drive, you can shift between high 2 and 4 wheel drive while you are driving.

For a manual transmission will the clutch wear faster if you go down a hill on neutral?

No, it will not wear the clutch faster That is a VERY unsafe driving practice. By putting the car's transmission into neutral, while going down a hill, you are now relying 100 percent on the car's brakes to slow and stop the car. This is very dangerous. The much safer way to do this is..........downshift to second gear and use the engine and the gears to slow down, while "covering the brake pedal" with your left foot, in case you need to stop rapidly. With a manual transmission, when you put it in neutral, you have dis-connected the engine from the drive wheels. The clutch pedal and the clutch plate are the parts that allow you to change gears without grinding them. Excessive clutch plate wear comes from "riding the clutch pedal" with your left foot, while driving along. Doing that partially engages the clutch plate, and makes it wear out rapidly. You should take your left foot completely OFF the clutch pedal when NOT shifting gears, and place it on the floor, away from the pedal.
