This could be a serious transmission problem rearing it's ugly head. I'm assuming your transmission is not getting bad signals from the electronic controls. That should generate a trouble code and give you a check engine light in most modern cars.
The transmission is essentially a hydraulic device. A built in pump uses the transmission fluid to slide clutch packs into and out of engagement to shift gears. Shifting problems indicate there is not enough fluid pressure to make the shift. This can be caused by low fluid levels, clogged fluid filters or problems in the control valves. Fluid level you can check. The exact procedure is in your owners manual but for most cars should be done with the engine and transmission well warmed up and running with the transmission in park.

The real problem here is that eventually the overdrive clutch packs will be damaged if you keep driving with them slipping. The clutch packs are deep inside the transmission and require some special tools and a certain amount of skill to replace not to mention the removal of the transmission. So again assuming you don't have a high-tech, electronically controlled transmission, I would take it to a good repair shop or three and get estimates on having it serviced.

Od light on


Hi there,

When you press in the Overdrive (OD) switch, this simply allows your gearbox to use the highest gear (when it needs to). For example, if your transmission has 1,2 & D gears, the OD acts as a 4th gear. This is useful on open roads and will help with economy.

If the OD light remains ON, then you have deactivated the 4th gear. This means the car will change up to 3rd gear only, until you depress the OD switch again.

Deactivating the OD is useful, when you wish to "manually" change down to 3rd gear, to climb a hill, or need better acceleration.

It feels like its slipping when its in OD and not so much in the other gears. The fluid level is good.


It may be slipping in any gear its time for a rebuild, the clutches are wearing out.

If its just in overdrive, then you can get it fixed now and may be a little cheaper

the OD shift solenoid is malfunctioning or has failed. changing this will bring back the OD. the solenoid is located in the bottom of the transmission pan.
