Please have your ignition coil pack checked. the coils go bad often on ford cars/trucks. if thats ok, then have your catalytic converter also checked. if its clogged, then it will cause the symptoms you describe.

hope this helps

How does the overdrive work and whats it for

Overdrive is your highest gear used at freeway speeds to reduce engine RPM and enhance fuel economy. If you have a towing option button (usually on dash or shift handle) make sure that it is not activated, otherwise you will not get the benefit of overdrive.

My 66 mustang automatic doesnt seem to shift right, can only go about 30 and the rpm is around 5000 but it wont shift

Either your vacuum modulator is bad or your band inside the tranny is bad. Check for plugged catalytic convertor also. May need to have the tranny rebuilt. Make sure you have good vacuum to the trans vacuum modulator.

When does the overdirve need to be turned on

Usually the overdrive should just be left on. It should only come into play when you are at high speeds above 50mph. This is essentially your "5th Gear" and should increase fuel economy. If you leave the overdrive "OFF" on the highway your engine RPM will be higher causing the fuel economy to suffer.

A circle with an S in it has appeared under the odometer and it makes a beeping noise when gaining sped from standing start. Whats the warning for or mean??

It sounds like you are driving a vehicle with a standard transmission. (It is always nice to know the Year, Make, Model, Engine Size and Transmission Type when we are talking about specifics information for a vehicle.)

Anyway, it sounds like you are describing the "Shift" light. This light is there to let you know that based on vehicle speed and engine speed, you need to shift to a higher gear for optimum fuel economy. With a little practice, you can learn to shift just before the light comes on. I you drive this way, you will get the best fuel mileage possible from your vehicle.

Can I install a 4 speed automatic transmission in my 1991 chevy cavalier to get better fuel economy?

I assume your car has a standard shift right now. Automatic transmissions **** up more gas than a stick shift, so I would advise you to keep yor standard stick shift. Just don't go around burning tires and try to keep your motor RPM's as low as possible.

You could have a bad valvebody in your transmission or a bad pump in your transmission or your clutches are bad. In any case you have a bad transmission. Please rate my answer.
