What keeps the transmission from going into overdrive when pulling a trailer?

It is not recommended to pull a trailer with automatic trans in overdrive, put in drive only. When attempting to pull without locking out overdrive, trans will continue to shift from drive to 0verdrive causing a massive heat buildup. Heat is not good for automatic transmissions, and will eventually cause failure, causing your wallet a very bad day!

What you're calling "overdrive" is probably torque converter "lockup". There's a good chance that it's a sticking relay inside the transmission. If that's the cause, be grateful, since a rebuilt transmission is about the only other option.

How do you disable overdrive on 2001 grand marquis?

That car is equipped with a 4R70W electronic automatic transmission through the 2005 model year, and the Overdrive OFF switch is on the end of the shift lever. Push it in to disable Overdrive, and again to re-enable Overdrive. This feature is typically only used when towing or in very hilly or mountainous terrain that would cause the transmission to "hunt" between Third and Fourth gear a lot.

Does overdrive cause transmission slipping?

If the transmission is healthy and any/all adjustments are done properly there should be no slippage.
