Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty
Being automatic, your vehicle selects overdrive when conditions are correct. The programming within the computer is designed to do this, and adjusts other engine functions accordingly. If you disable the o/d, it is possible to gain a bit more performance but more often than not you will be prone to forgetting to switch it back on when its needed. Overall this will hurt your fuel consumption and cost you $. One exception is that on many jeeps, going uphill they tend to stay in o/d too long. Most times you can "downshift" out of o/d by lightly touching the brake pedal.
Simply put, leave well enough alone... You can save more fuel by anticipating stops and coasting, (foot off gas) when approaching a light that is or will shortly be red, and not accelerating hard off stops. Just because someone writes it does not mean it's true!!!
