On a 1999 Mercury Cougar : Overdrive is the normally allowed position ( it won't shift into overdrive until the speed is faster anyway ) If you find that the transmission is frequently shifting between overdrive and drive ( such as hilly roads ) then it is best to use the transaxle ( transmission ) control switch on the side of your gear shifter to shut off the overdrive ( O/D OFF will appear in your gauge cluster )
