Not sure what is wrong with my car? Multiple problems or just one simple fix? I recently bought a 97 toyota camry automatic at 23k miles. The engine looked like it was in decent shape and everything ran...

Keeping the overdrive on during normal driving is ok. It's like making a 3 speed transmission a 4 speed. With it being an automatic, overdrive will only engage when the car speed and engine rpms meet the conditions for it to engage. NOT driving with overdrive at high speed will make the engine work much harder, and could likely cause that pulsing and surging as you have described. It's like down shifting in a manual transmission car. Keep overdrive on, it will only when when it is supposed to, automatically.

O/D Off light is on

Try hiting the overdrive button on the shift lever or the steering control lever you may have touched it without realizing it and it's not hard to test just push the button.

Overdrive indication light

first of all, does it shift into overdrive, I would check and see first of all if you drive it and it does go to O.D. then press the button once, does it not go to O.D. you can do this while driving, when running about 45 press the button once, do you feel it downshift. if yes then your light is burnt out...if no run an OBDII check to see if there are nay codes for the transmission. if that checks out theN i would go for the switch being bad..

Overdrive problem

OK, here is an update - The torque booster pump broke, so I had transmission rebuilt at Benchmark. So far a year and 20K miles later we have no problems.
