SOURCE: Looses power and wont stay in Overdrive

How old is your exhaust system? Do you seem to lose power faster on an incline? Sounds like your exhaust is restricted and the main culprit usually is the catalytic converter. Try having your local repair shop do an emissions test. Hope that might help you.

Why is my overdrive not working on my 1965 Jaguar 3.8S


sounds like a electrical problem but could be the little oil pump in the overdrive. first check the solenoid on the overdrive unit is being turned on with ign on. in 3rd or 4th gear use a test lamp or similar. the most likely cause is the switches on the gearbox that will not allow the overdrive to function in the incorrect gear. but could be the pump stuck or blocked filter

Overdrive button


from the car manual:

Tum the overdrive switch on for good fuel
economy and smooth driving. If engine braking
is needed in the "D" range or if repeated
upshifting and downshifting between the 3rd
and 4th gear is needed when climbing a
gentle slope, it is recommended that the
overdrive switch be tumed off. Tum the
overdrive switch back on immediately afterward.

When the overdrive switch is tumed on, the
transaxle will automatically upshift to the second,
third and overdrive gears. When the overdrive
switch is tumed off, the transaxle will not
upshift to the overdrive gear. For normal driving,
the selector lever should be left in the "D"
position and the overdrive switch tumed on.
If you need to accelerate rapidly, press the
accelerator pedal all the way to the floor. The
transaxle will automatically shift to a lower gear,
depending on the vehicle speed and load.

2000 es300 lexus auto w overdrive button overdrive 4th gear not work


There isn't anything wrong with your car. This is perfectly normal. I have a 2000 ES300 as well as other people that I know and it operates in the same way. Overdrive doesn't mean the same thing for every car or transmission. In our case overdrive is simply a reference to the top gear which is 4th gear. When you switch overdrive off(which is depressing the button causing the O/D OFF dash light to illuminate,) the highest gear becomes 3rd because you turned 4th gear or overdrive off. The application scenario for this is usually mountainous terrain where a lot of uphill driving makes it more feasible not to up shift into 4th gear while ascending and descending. It will not switch back to overdrive or 4th gear until you re-engage it by turning the overdrive back on or repressing the button. Again, when the O/D OFF dash light is illuminated, overdrive which is 4th gear is off and the highest gear will then become 3rd. It will never shift into 4th gear while this light is illuminated or overdrive is off. When you press the button and the O/D OFF dash light is NOT illuminated overdrive is on and therefore it will shift into 4th gear as usual. This applies to all 97-2001 ES300's and probably any other car you drive tat exhibits this same type of change when overdrive is turned off.

sounds like a stuck valve. I'm still new to transmission stuff so I could be wrong. he could probably get a transmission rebuild book and maybe just do it himself. it would be the cheapest unless you knows someone
