If your vehicle only vibrates at speeds above a certain point the most likely cause of the issue is a tire balance issue. just make sure it doesn't matter if you accelerating or decelerating the vehicle just vibrates after a certain speed, and if this is the case take it to a tire shop and have them check the balance. shouldn't cost more than like 40 bucks.

My 2006 chevy cobalt wont run in drive it dies but will run good in reverse


On some old Buicks and Oldsmobiles the overdrive would stick on. A bandaid cure for them was to unplug the cable under the hood, but you no longer had overdrive. I heard that changing the transmission fluid would clear that up. There's no overdrive in Reverse.. placing the car in 1st or 2nd gear could bypass o/d also if they don't use the same gear set. Once up-to-speed, place the car in Drive. This only works if the reason the car dies is it can't accelerate in that high a gear at such a slow speed.

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.

CAR MAKING A LOW MOAN NOISE AS IT SLOWS DOWN BETWEEN 50-40MILES


diff noises are a harmonic whine on drive (Acceleration or drive speed )or a growl on overdrive ( slowing down or coasting)
if you have a drive shaft to the rear diff it is possible that the rear shaft has not been assembled correctly and the out of phase of the joints will give indications that you describe
Take it to a drive shaft specialist shop for a diagnosis

I have a 1995 Maxima. For in town driving is the overdrive to be on or off?


this is really not a problem, overdrive will only be used if car speed is up to speed for it to engage and that is how its designed. If you pull a trailer or if you are in a hilly area and your car keeps shifting in and out of overdrive you should turn off untill more flater terrain, otherwise it doesn't hurt your vehicle.

93 buick century automatic drive with overdrive can manually shift up through gears to get up to speed but when slowing down if you press on the accelerater car begins to **** until you let off the gas...


It's not coming out of overdrive when you touch the brake pedal because the brake light switch/OD shutdown is either out of adjustment or just plain bad. It's staying in overdrive at low speed and causing the shuddering. Replace or adjust the brake light switch under dash at the brake pedal.

Vibration


your highway acceleration problem could be a coil problem. Not sure if that year of chev has coil packs or not but experienced same thing with ford 5.4L. went through 3 coil packs and did the same thing each time before biting the dust. Transmission seems to be sticking on the 1to2 upshift and could be a sticking solenoid in the valve body of the tranny. If the shifting problem persists then the tranny deffinately has to be rebuilt. It's made it quite far if tha is the original tranny, you cant expect too much life out of it if it has been worked hard. I highly doubt a fluid change would help at all. Or if you want, you can buy a can of new truck from GM for about 25 to 35 thousand bucks! Typically works great!
