why does the 1991 Lincoln towncars transmission not have overdrive?Instead of going into overdrive it seems to go into neutral.But if you take it out of overdrive and leave it in drive it never goes into neutral while I'm driving.

Could be low fluid,a bad sensor or transmission going bad.

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.

if their is no slipping or any other transmission issues and it is just only the loss of overdrive try replacing the brake light switch

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.
