Do you drive with overdrive on or off in your 1999 mercury cougar?

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 )

When do you drive a car with overdrive off?

"Overdrive off" is appropriate for hilly roads and mountains, also you can use when you need some extra performance, for instance, when you are entering a highway and you need to accelerate very quickly to reach the speed you need. Some models recommend overdrive off for towing. It's highly not recommended to use the overdrive function for everyday driving because it wears engines and transmissions out quicker.


Does the over drive make your car go faster or slower?

the overdrive is used to save gas. it is an additional gear after your final gear in the transmission. this gear usually kicks in at higher speeds (maybe 50+). you will notice the tach drop down about 500 rpm's as the vehicle kicks into overdrive. it does not make your car go faster or slower. you will not have be able to accelerate as fast in overdrive as you will in other gears. if it is an automatic overdrive then as you slow down the overdrive will automatically be taken off.
