What does overdrive mean should I have it on around the town


Over drive is a gear that is used for constant higher speeds. Usually will kick in automatically on almost all vehicles. Over drive is designed to save you gas at higher speeds.
I would suggest not turning it off unless you are towing or climbing a steep mountain (something that would strain an "Over drive gear).

What is the second drive gear for


The first one is over drive and the second is drive. It is best to just use overdrive when on the parkway and drive on slower back roads when there is hills and stop and go traffic. Overdrive is a higher gear.

Does overdrive effect the gas usage in a 2003 Ford Focus


Yes. Overdrive helps get better milage in all vehicles. It is simply put, just an extra gear. When you go through 1st, then 2nd, 3rd, then OD (in automatic - 5th gear in manual)

All it does is allow the engine to run at lower speed while maintaining crusing speed. It does not have a lot of power, it's notsupposed to. It is to save fuel at higher speeds, particularly over distance travel..

In city driving it can slow the changing of gears. Better to turn it off for more low speed control.

I have a 2002 ford focus and the car will not move in reverse. It moves forward in drive only, but won't kick into overdrive. Any ideas


sounds like its internal, like the reverse band, that applies the overdrive, or the clutches that apply when in overdrive, either way the reverse band and overdrive clutches work hand in hand, for overdrive and reverse... id say you need a rebuild or a junk yard unit.... :( sorry for the bad news.

2003 ford focus... possible transmission problem.. or electrical?


Overdrive is a lock up within the transmission. The other "gears" are fluid and belt driven. So, could be that the sensor that allows the overdrive to "lock" is dirty/faulty. A transmission shop should be able to tell you in a heart beat.

If you have an automatic transmission on your truck, i would be guessing that the clutch pack for the overdrive is worn out, as in an automatic tranny, you usually have 2 seprate sets of clutch packs, one for the normal drive gears and one for the overdrive gears. Although getting a tranny opened up for any reason will be pretty costly if you have a mechanic do it for you, and if you are not already trained to tweak inside an automatic tranny, i suggest you do not do it yourself, as it is very complicated and delicate. So before you spend a wad of money, always start with checking the transmission fluid level in the tranny, as missing some oil in there will sometimes cause pretty weird and unexpected results. So if the levels are good and everything that has to do with to oil is OK, as I said, probably the overdrive clutch pack that needs to be replaced, and hoping it is not the solenoid bodies that are defective, cause if that is the case, then it will cost about as much to repair the tranny then to buy a new one.
