My advice is to weigh the asking price for the car against a transmission repair. Incidentally, it is not necessarily debilitating for the overdrive not to work but it will eventually lead to a transmission overhaul or replacement which is costly.

2000 elantra gls overdrive disengages while driving. If I turn key off then on quickly while driving, overdrive returns to normal. Any hints as to what may be the problem?

Well I would guess there is a solenoid internally in the transmission that fails intermittently go to a local transmission shop make sure it's reputable have them test drive your car and u can ride with they will hook up a computer which will read all of the functions of the transmission that will b the best and cheapest way to exactly figure out you problem thanx Chris

2000 hyundai elantra will not shift into overdrive and does not downshift properly. This happens only after the car warns up. When cold, it shifts just fine.

Hello you will need to have a further assessment completed your car will need to be hoisted up preferably at a transmission specialist you will probably need to have your transmission overhaul this is a big job.

I don't exactly know when to turn the overdrive on or off. The owner's manual says to keep in on for normal driving but others across the Net say to only have it on when driving on the interstate or flat...

In town,turn it OFF,the car wont go up and down the gears(3rd and 4th) so much.on the highway turn it on,to lower the engine revs and save gas.
