Truck jerks hard in overdrive

The problem happens only in overdrive in the 50 to 60 mph range, when I go to pass a vehicle or go up a hill the truck will **** 4 or 5 times before downshifting to 4th gear or when it reaches a higher rpm in overdrive once im going about 65 the problem no longer occurs

Its just time for a tune up
what your getting at low RPMs is just a misfire. i would bet to say that you engine light is also on.
so plugs and clean your throttle body and if you haven yet replace your fuel filter.
later paul

When driving down the road should the transmission be in drive or overdrive?


Overdrive.

Unless you're towing something, or maybe if you're going up a hill and the transmission is 'hunting' for the proper gear. You could temporarily pop it out of OD until you get to the top of the hill.

Overdrive will allow the motor to spin more slowly, thus burning less gas.

I have a 2002 Mazda MPV. When do I turn on/ off overdrive to my transmission


By default, your automatic transmission has a torque converter that is the main focus to your car\truck changing gears. I had one break on me in a Nissan Sentra and was glad I was close to where I was going because I would have otherwise been stranded.

If you live in a mountainous area and do a lot of traveling going up and down hills, your best bet, as long as you are above 58 mph(like going thru Denver on Interstate 70 and going west thru the Rockies, then it is okay to leave the overdrive on. I would, however, recommend that going up an incline of more than 30* then you may want to turn it off until you have reached a sustainable speed. If you are towing more than 800 lbs on a trailer on an incline of more than 20* then you would want to turn the overdrive off as the torque converter putting your vehicle into overdrive with a heavy load can cause the converter to snap within the transmission and you would be dead in the water.

If you live in a more plain-like state then the only time you really NEED to turn off the overdrive is if you are hauling a large amount of cargo any real distance or rarely get over 4300 rpm due to such short traveling distances. Overdrive function is primarily used to cut down on the amount of fuel needed in order to take long journey on Interstate or State highways that allow for speeds faster than 55 mph.
Hope this helps.

Hard downshift on 2003 cadillac cts. When I coast the car without breaking the car jerks as it passes 20mph and 15 mph. It also happens when I gas the car. It feels like i'm running something over


actually you have to change transmission fluid every 75000 miles and this car have a dip stick it on the transmission pan you seek the professional help because they need to replaced the filter also and do the flash for bather performance

1995 oldsmobile- car makes a surging or jerking at 45 mph


That is the speed when it would normally shift into overdrive or the torque converter would go into lockup.
It is also when the engine would be working hard and a slight miss could be magnified.
You may want to have a transmission shop test drive it for their opinion.

best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

Sounds like the passing gear cable is out of adjustment. Get a shop manual and see what the specs are on how to adjust it properly. It is a pretty simple fix.
