That Is The Way Overdrive on your vehicle is designed to operate. Consider Yourself Lucky, You Are Not Overloading The Transmission By It Not Shifting Into Overdrive Until 45 MPH If It Shifted Into OD At A Lower Speed Say 25 to 30 MPH It Would Put Too Much Load On The Transmission That Most Likely It Would Fail Before Long.

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 probably have a button or switch to turn overdrive on and off, it may be on the end of your shift lever, you probably want to keep the overdrive on, save you some gas, hope i helped

Overdrive means the wheels are turning faster than the engine so gas is saved, (5th gear would be overdrive) however if you want to accelerate quickly you will have to shift into a lower gear which would make the engine turn faster than the wheels.

bad filter and fluid,bad front pump,or the overdrive is going out common problem when using overdrive in the city limits meant for the highway start and always stoping not good to be in overdrive cant stress enough here at the house until she spent $3770.00 dollars dont have to tell her anymore

The only reason not to leave it in overdrive would be if you are towing and going uphill. The car's computer will tell the transmission when to shift safely, but when under a very heavy load it may shift a lot. I usually only take overdrive off when I am towing going up hills where the grade changes frequently. If you are unsure, then it is better to keep it in overdrive all of the time and let the computer do the calculating. Fords actually have a pretty good system in place to remember how you drive so the computer will make the ride most comfortable.

Sounds like an overdrive problem. The transmission is kicking in and out of overdrive causing it to overwork and get too hot. turn the overdrive off and try it.

i think it would because it would make the gear shift better and lube them and help it

When I was a nursing assistant, there would be shift differentials. I'm not sure if it's the same thing as wage differentials. But basically it was a small increase in your hourly wage if you worked a different shift. For example, the nursing home had a .40 differential for second shift and a .30 differential for third shift. So a person who makes 10 dollars an hour, would make 10.40 an hour while working a second shift. Or would make 10.30 an hour while working third. But would make 10.00 an hour while working first.

With the minimum shift which is two hours, regular McDonald's workers would make about $15.32 a day, while with the maximum shift which is 12 hours, McDonald's workers would make about $91.92 a day.

The Montana not shifting into overdrive could be caused by several things. First, check the computer codes for any possible problems. Make sure that the transmission fluid is full and does not look or smell burnt. If the vehicle has high mileage, the transmission filter could need changing.

yes he/she can make you work any shift needed unless its in writing and even if its a union shop you would still have to until off probation etc... and able to join but still it would go based on senority

You will have to get a new intake manifold that will fit a 350 with vortec heads. For the tranny to shift correctly including going into overdrive there is a vacuum kit you can get, but it will only work on some overdrive trannys. A company like Summit should be able to help you with the correct answers. If you can not get a kit for your tranny then you could always locate a 700R out of a earlier model truck.

keep the overdrive shaft button pressed, there is a panel light called "O/D" that should light indicating the overdrive is OFF. In that case make sure the light is OFF which means overdrive is ON.

it depends on where you are driving. If you are just driving around town, you should probably turn the overdrive off, because it will cause the engine to run at very low revolutions per minute, which is not good for it. If you are driving on the freeway, then you should have the overdrive on, because it will save you fuel. However, if you are in hilly terrain, turn the overdrive off, so that the engine will be running fast enough to climb the hills without the vehicle slowing way down. Practice turning the overdrive off just before you start up a hill, and give the vehicle the gas to get its speed up before you get to the hill. This way, you can maintain freeway speeds. When you reach the top of the hill, turn the overdrive on again. Most transmissions today are set up to shift up as quickly as possible, even around town, to make them seem more fuel efficient. I have had a vehicle shift into overdrive at 20 miles per hour, but as soon as I gave it a little gas, it would shift down again, usually a couple of gears. Consistantly driving an engine at low RPM's results in carbon deposits in the engine, fouling of anti-pollution equipment, and poor gas milage. By turning the overdrive off in town, you can help to prevent these effects, and save yourself money on garage bills.

Overdrive lets the engine run slower at highway speeds. This saves on gas.

it wont make it any faster but it will make it shift harder. if its an automatic it you will really be able to feel the shift. all it does is make it shift faster. this actually causes less wear to the transmission.

Shift + ., Shift + ;. Shift + 9 = >:(

Makeshift is a compound word made up of make and shift.

Leaky transmission lines would cause the fluid level to drop and eventually cause the transmission not to shift and go.

If working a 8 hour shift 5 days a week, it would be $24,192.

Brackets. To open the you press SHIFT+9 (hold shift down). This will make this : ( To close the brackets, it's SHIFT+0 (hold shift down). This will make : )

i have that problem to it has something to do with the gear shift censor
