Can you turn on and off the overdrive on a 98 ram 1500


I have never known an overdrive that cannot be switched on or off at will or engaged or disengaged.

There are two definitions of overdrive and in the philosophy of some people the fifth gear is an overdrive.
The conventional manual gearbox, because the first motion shaft is locked to the third motion shaft in the top gear ratio, any supplemental ratio that has a ratio higher than 1:1 is considered an overdrive ratio.

The more traditional definition of an overdrive is a supplementary gearbox that can be incorporated into a normal manual gearbox to provide a single overdrive ratio for the purpose of quieter and more economical cruising.
The early overdrive was cable operated by a large chrome-plated dashboard-mounted handle. Later overdrives were hydraulic units that could be switched in or out by electricity, often by the means of a steering column-mounted switch or by a tiny switch incorporated into the gearknob.

A typical installation included an inhibitor switch mounted on the gearbox which prevented overdrive operation in the lower ratios when the benefits would be dubious.
Sometimes a lower than standard final drive ratio would be used and the overdrive ratios which typically could be selected whenever third or fourth gear was selected could be used together to produce something like a six speed close ratio gearbox which was hitherto unheard of when some of the rest of the world was still using "three on the tree" type three-speed gearboxes.

Most manufacturers had dispensed with overdrives by the end of the 1970's due to the weight and added expense, in favour of the now common five-speed gearbox, though Nissan incorporated an overdrive ratio into their automatic transmissions to compensate for torque converter slip when fuel costs began to rise disproportionately.

If you have an overdrive unit fitted to your car that doesn't work, I advise starting the diagnostic process by checking through the electric circuitry, wiring, switches and solenoid.

I have a nissan 1400 champ and is leaking oil on the front part of the manual 5 speed gearbox and the rear part of the gearbox. I have replaced the crankshaft oil seal but i still have oil leaking on


There are seals on the front and rear of the transmission. If the clutch wasn't covered in engine oil, then replacing the crankshaft seal wasn't necessary. Reseal the transmission.

Oil coming out of gearbox apparently on 05 freelander td4. do I require a new gearbox or can this be fixed?


That depends from where the leak is coming: it can be as simple as an loose drain plug, could get worse if it's a worn seal or can be terminal if the gearbox's case is fissured. Put the SUV on stands,clean the gearbox, start the engine at idle, put it into a gear (3 or 4 will do) and look from where the oil is coming.

How to disengage four wheel drive on 2000 range rover 4.0 SE always running on all four.


If there is no switch or lever, it is suppose to be permanent 4WD. Remove the short driveshaft connecting the front differential to the transmission/gearbox.

On a 2.5 range rover does the coolant and gearbox oil flow through the one radiator


No the coolant radiator is a sealed system, oil and water do not mix; as far as I am aware manual gearboxes do not have coolers.

If you have oil in your coolant water this will be an engine problem. Check the engine oil is not frothy and caramel coloured.

If your gear box oil is is a brown colour or dirty looking, this is due to water ingress, either through the breather hose or seals, try changing the fluid. If you can check the seals and breaher hose.

Suggest you get a owners manual and Haynes or workshop manual.
There are plenty of free files on line, do a search on Google, Alltheweb, Lycos, etc

Heat Coil Needs to be replace


If you have a leak on the inside of the front tyre this is the swivel hub leaking. Go to ebay and look up "swivel hub grease". You need to replace the swivel hub oil with one shot grease.

Range Rover Gearbox


didnt you get a warrenty thrown in on a £37000 car,did this occur within 90 days of your purchase,if so go to trading standards you have a 90 day warrenty by law,sounds like they took there time finding the problem so they could not be liable for the repair bill,also visit the landyzone website i use it and its a great source of help and advise,get the landrover customer care no of another rr dealer and chat to lr people themselves and go to the vosa website and check on the recalls for range rovers.

good luck
