I recently bought an accent that works fine, but only in D(drive). When I put the car into overdrive, i lose all power and the car wants almost to stall out. I'm thinking maybe a sensor problem or just a bad transmission, please help with an idea of what could be the problem. -Lost In Canada

The overdrive will only come into use when the transmission module reads the correct revs/ road speed ratio. Switch if off for heavy city traffic driving to improve economy when it moves up and down all the time. No it will not harm the transmission otherwise.
sounds like a possible shift solenoid. If it's due for a fluid change, do that and add a container of lucas trans conditioner. Likely you have a drain plug on the pan so if the fluid was recently serviced, just drain a quart out and replace with the additive, then top off. If the condition does not change within a week, likely you will need better diagnosis from a reputable trans shop.
well the first thing you need to do is to pull the stored codes in the computer and see what they say and then go from there, this could be a speed sensor or a trany going bad , i dont know if this is an automatic or standard trany, start with the codes from the check engine light, autozone car parts store will scan the computer at no charge,
You basically have to have the transmission rebuilt. The overdrive band is a low wearing band BUT it does wear. Depending on where you take it Dealer approx 3k independant guys $1900 and up. I recommend a Transmission repair shop that employs
