Could be low on fluid!
or clutch bands or weak pump in the tranny
low fluid stops the pump delivering enough pressure to the valve body which activates the pistons within hence wont engage untill you pick up revs & does more damage !
get it serviced ASAP!

The O/D light on my dash board is on. What does this mean please?


O/D is "Over Drive". This is the recommended transmission setting when driving normally. You should disable O/D when towing a trailer, when climbing hills or when the transmission is "hunting" (shifting back and forth over a very short period of time).

O/D provides maximum fuel efficiency by allowing the transmission to shift to the highest gear, quickly. When O/D is disabled, the transmission may not shift to the highest gear range and it may take longer for the transmission to shift into the highest gear supported.

You can see / hear this by looking at your tachometer (or listening to the engine rev if no tachometer) with the O/D on at any speed. Shutting it off should cause the tachometer to jump up noticeably (or hear the engine rev up) and the car should begin to slow almost immediately. You'll need to step on the gas to maintain the speed when you switched it of. This additional fuel is what you saved when in O/D. The up side of O/D off is more responsive acceleration - but at the cost of fuel efficiency.

I hope this helps :-)

Fifth gear


5speed manual transmission.
jumps to neutral? moving fast, slow, hills ,turns, down hill, where>?
my guess. is:
1: bad engine/tranny mounts
2: bad shift linkage.
3: bad trans.

My car has trouble shifting uphill and in low gears


When a car is going uphill, it has to use more power to get up the hill. Most automatic transmission cars will automatically detect this, and shift into a lower gear to get the car up the hill easier. As you get to the top or let off the gas, the car should than shift into a higher gear to maximize fuel efficiency. What does your transmission seem to do? Not want to go into a lower gear, are the RPMs jumping up and down before it shifts?

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.
