It could be a cloged tranmision filter. I had the same thing with 92 Stealth and changing the filter fix it. I had the same problem in my 94 lumina. Changing the filter didn't make a difference for me, but it did help a slight bit.

The overdrive is before the drive because as you ordinarly drive down the road your car automaticaly goes into overdive when you reach a certain speed. You use drive only when you are pulling a trailer or going up a large hill so it won't go into overdrive and put undo work on the transmission or motor. It is also a gas saving factor.
