When and how do I use an overdrive in harrier


Over drive should be on (automatic) all the time. If you have it turned off , turn it on. It is for fuel economy. Over drive usually kicks in around 45 to 50 MPH. When you want to turn it off is if you are pulling something on hilly roads. And pulling something and you feel the overdrive kicking in and out even on flat roads

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee that has intermitant transmission problems 1)shifting up it wind out to 2k-3k before shifting 2) at higher speed it feels as if it slips out of overdrive rpm increase but speed...


It will shift out of overdrive upon increasing throttle , pulling hills and so on. Your overdrive probably kicks in around 35 to 45mph and kicks back out as you increase throttle. Electrically controled speed sensor to control the response. Overwise the engine would bog down to a stall. Over drive is just that. It changes the gearing ratio to over drive meaning less then final gear 4 to 1 down to 4 to 3 etc more direct drive ratio to lessen consumtion of fuel with less stress on engine. Have shift speed sensor adjusted. Don't drive in overdrive in city if most driving is under 45mph

Overdrive Problem.


The throttle sensor on higher mileage vehicles has been know to cause this type concern. The voltage that the engine and trans controller sees starts to get erratic from the sensor and will kick out of OD.

Shifting


Try putting the trans in 3rd gear when going up hills.It's trying to get into overdrive & doesn't have enough power to maintain overdrive so it is kicking in & out of gear trying to keep up with the engine.your owners manual should tell you about being in overdrive while going up hils.Good luck,
