I have 2002 E350 with about 150,000 miles. The Overdrive light on the shifter does not come on and the overdrive does not work. Transmission shifts fine otherwise.

Your transmission fluid contain water,thats why the colour of the fluid changed to pink.And of such the clutch is slipping causing the engine to reve up before shifting - Check transmission cooler.

SOURCE: 2003 chevy silverado will not shift into drive or overdrive.

transmission shift solenoid is stuck open this is a common vehicle issue in automatics and not particular to any make or model vehicle 15 dollar part and arm and leg for labor if taken in

heres an idea to try
take out the transmission filter and replace with new one make sure to take not of any metal debry in trans pan this indicates the trans had sheered its gears down and a trans rebuild is needed
the transfilter needs to be changed at a certain milage interval they can get clogged up
there is a kit you buy for your truck at any parts store
its an easy change hour of time unbolt trans pan unbolt trans filter and put new one in
kit comes with new seals less than an hour you can do it yourself

to overdrive you would feel a difference in shift badley if it was that something to keep in mind

SOURCE: transmission slipping

do u have any transmission trouble codes? u should if the OD light is flashing, the light flashes to alert u that a electronic malfunction is occurring in the trans controls, u may just have a bad trans connector or a shift solenoid starting fail due to a shorted field closing coil.

SOURCE: transmission does not always shift into overdrive

Governor pressure sensor or solenoid is going bad. To replace them drop the tranny pan, remove the filter , and the parts are pretty ez to get to. These aren't cheep thou, but replace them as a set. Parts will probly run about $200.

We just bought a 93 toyota corolla. Even when I have the overdrive engaged it keeps flashing O/D Off does this mean it is going out Thanks T


If it is flashing then it is a malfunction indicator. Think of it as a "check transmission light." It could be anything from a loose connection in the shifter to a bad transmission. How does it drive? Is it shifting into overdrive?

The O D light off what does that mean? automatic 2002 kia spectra


that means that it is not utilizing the overdrive gear in the transmission. there should b a button on the shifter or on the dash to turn the overdrive back on. Consult your owners manual for the exact location.

An orange light O/D off came on today on the dashboard around the stering wheel. Is this a problem and can I drive it


OD is toggled on and off - usually with a switch near/on the shifter.

It will not hurt to drive - but you will have no passing gear. (overdrive)

The trans is inover drive only i pnt one in it and i drove the one it come out of


on the end of the lever that puts the car in gear is a button. This controls whether the overdrive is on or off. When overdrive is "off" a light comes on with OD showing on the dash. If the light is "off" then you are in overdrive. so when the light comes on push the button in the shifter handle. if you tow something you want the light to come back on "deactivating the overdrive" and you should see the dash light. You may just have a burnt out light bulb in the dash for this.

1986 nissan 300zx wont shift into overdrive


in the morning, the transmission will not shift into overdrive for a few miles. This is not a problem. It's designed to do this, allowing the transmission temperature to be warm to prevent damage. good luck happy holiday

My overdrive light is flashing indicating the overdrive is off


this could mean there is a problem with the transmission,but most times when OD light is flashing it is because the wiring to the OD switch is broken.
is the OD switch on the end of the gear shift lever ?
or does your vehicle have the shifter on console between seats ?
