Meaning of overdrive?

There are many possible meanings to the word overdrive. Many people use the word overdrive to mean going beyond normal. As far as automotive terms go, overdrive simply means that the transmission output shaft spins at a faster rate than the input shaft. So, for example, if a transmission had a .70 overdrive ratio, then the transmission output would spin one full turn for every .70 turns of the input shaft.

Overdrive is for highway driving, which is great for gas mileage. Also, not to use overdrive when going up or down hills because it makes your transmission work harder. That's what I was told anyways.

When to turn off overdrive in your car?

The overdrive should be switched off when you want to avoid unneccessary shifting. If you are driving on a hilly road, the vehicle will shift out of overdrive going uphill to maintain speed while pulling the vehicles weight up the hill, and shift into overdrive going down the hill to save fuel when additional engine power is not needed. When towing with an automatic transmission, the vehicle may tend to repeatedly shift in and out of overdrive due to the added weight. In scenerios such as these, you should turn off the overdrive to avoid the unneccesary shifting which puts more wear and tear on the transmission.

Overdrive is the normally allowed position .

This can be caused by anything from a bad sensor to transmission going bad. A transmission mechanic can check for engine codes and other tests to verify if it is a simple fix or major repair.

Why might a 2000 Ford Focus manual transmission not accelerate when the gas pedal is pressed even though the engine revs up?

AnswerThe clutch is worn out or needs adjustment.Or, you are just not utilizing the button under the shifter knob, that releases the transmission out of overdrive. You will find that the transmission will keep up with the RPM's if it is not in overdrive.EDIT: There is no overdrive button for a manual tranny, that's what the 5th gear is for. If the RPMS are going up and the speed isn't, it's time to have your clutch examined.

1995 Nissan pathfinder it has a trans leak and does not go into reverse what do you do and could i get it fixed easy?

trannies are tricky and should be handled by the transmission pro's..... but your problems of it not going into reverse might be from the low fluid levels.... it may be a minor repair right now but don't leave it too long before the pro's get to see it....

Is it bad on a 2004 ford expedition Eddie Bauer transmission to keep it in overdrive?

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.

Should you leave the over drive on all the time 1994 Nissan Pathfiner?

Yes!! unless you want lower gas mileage, and excessive wear on your engine and transmission..only take the Overdrive off if you are in a low traction situation...snow, ice, of off road terrain. Im the same person who left the answer to "programming keyless remotes on a '94 pathfinder" not registering for this damned page but i will be of any help i can to fellow Nissan "Pathy" owners..e-mail me at if you happen to be a hot chick definatly e-mail about your pathfinder It is a good idea to turn it off while towing ,, any automatic i drive with o/d seems to get MUCH better gas milage when just in drive if you're on back roads or going up hills. Maily because you don't have to put your foot into the pedal more to get it to kick out of overdrive once you already started losing speed going up a hill. i was getting 20mpg on an 87 IROC with 350 and auto tranny because of this method.

Do you need overdrive at city driving?
