Overdrive can refer to two different things. An overdrive is a device which was commonly used on rear-wheel drive automobiles to allow the choice of an extra-high overall gear ratio for high speed cruising, thus saving fuel, at the cost of less torque. It also refers to a combination of gearing inside a transmission or transaxle which results in the output speed being greater than the input speed. In the latter case, "overdrive" does not refer to a physically separate identifiable part/assembly. Four-wheel drive, 4WD, 4x4 ("four by four"), all-wheel drive, and AWD are terms used to describe a four-wheeled vehicle with a drivetrain that allows all four wheels to receive power from the engine simultaneously. While many people think exclusively of off-road vehicles, powering all four wheels provides better control on slick ice and is an important part of rally racing on mostly-paved roads. Four-wheel drive (4WD or 4x4 for short) was the original term, often used to describe truck-like vehicles that required the driver to manually switch between a two wheel drive mode for streets and a four-wheel drive mode for low traction conditions such as ice, mud, or loose gravel. The "all wheel drive" term (AWD for short) is just a marketing term. The AWD term is now being used to market both vehicles which continuously drive all four wheels and vehicles which switch from two wheel drive to four-wheel drive automatically as the primary drive wheels slip. The terms are thus quite vague in modern usage. The buyer must be wary. It is common for identical drivetrain systems to be marketed under different names for upmarket and downmarket branding, and also common for very different drivetrain systems to be marketed under the same name for brand uniformity. For example, Quattro, 4matic and 4motion can mean either an automatically engaging system with a Haldex clutch or a continuously operating system with a Torsen differential.
Overdrive is the normally allowed position ( it won't shift into overdrive until the speed is fast enough )
Overdrive is the normally allowed position
If it has overdrive use it! it is a "highway gear" it will make no difference what so ever until you get up to speed then it will shift into overdrive and save you gas!
You most likely have a bad universal joint. This universal joint is located in the drive line of the vehicle and needs replaced as soon as possible.
In most cases drive with overdrive especially if maintaining over 45 mph. Take out of overdrive if on slippery pavement
yes we're here, we have arrived, get ready, to pump it into overdrive! go, go, go, yeah! drive, drive don't give in; pump it into overdrive; win!
Overdrive is the normally allowed position , but unless the speed is higher it won't shift into overdrive anyway
For everyday use leave overdrive ON. When/if you tow a trailer, turn overdrive OFF.
Overdrive is the normally allowed position but it won't shift into overdrive until the speed is fast enough
No it is not Overdrive is the top gear that has a higher ration than 1 to 1. So if you have a 4 speed automatic with overdrive, then 4th is not overdrive. Overdrive is beyond 4th.
overdrive in automatic is same as in manuel (stick shift) overdrive is basically an extra gear that drops engine revs it is sort of like coasting once you get up to speed where over drive will kick in
Overdrive allowed is the normal position
No. You should not drive in overdrive all the time.
All overdrives are the same. There is no such thing as manual and electronic overdrives. Overdrive is used for Cruising Speed (usually anywhere above 45mph). Its also better on your transmission to have it in overdrive mode at high speeds. The effects of it are simple. It basically lowers your RPM's and still maintains the same, if not faster, speed that Drive can achieve.
Overdrive ON is the normal position But if you are towing something or driving in hilly country where the transmission is constantly shifting from overdrive to drive , then you want to switch the overdrive off
yes it is .
2004 trailblazer have over drive
Overdrive is the normally allowed position . It won't shift into overdrive until the speed is higher anyway , such as on the highway / freeway
Neither. Racing is almost always in manual transmission.
Drive it in Overdrive when You don't plan on driving fast and jamming the accelerator. Overdrive is like a last gear that helps your truck maintain torque at low RPM. Don't use the Overdrive when trying to go up and down mountains cause it ruins the tranny. I use overdrive a lot but when i get on the free way I'm in drive until im a freeway speeds or with the flow of traffic.
no you don't have to drive with overdrive on permanently, but you will change gear quicker and less smoothly, also your fuel consumption will increase by as much as 50%.

Drive is 3rd Gear. Overdrive is 4th Gear.
Overdrive is the normally allowed position ( in overdrive the engine doesn't rev as high , the gas mileage is better , the transmission will run cooler etc. when you drive at higher speeds )
