First, check your fluid level and quality and transmission throttle linkage adjustment.

The torque converter clutch solenoid may be hanging when it gets hot. Find the connector on the transaxle, unplug it and put some kind of cover on it to keep dirt out of the connector. If the problem goes away, that's your problem. However, you will see a significant reduction in gas mileage.

It could also be as you surmise, that it's getting stuck in overdrive. You can test this by shifting into the highest gear before Overdrive, instead of Overdrive, before the car gets warmed up (observe engine RPM limits). Once again, you're sacrificing gas mileage to test for the problem.

What is the proper way of using overdrive,how and when you have to use it?

If you are not climbing steep hills or towing, leave it on all the time. Turn it off for low speed/high strain driving like towing, climbing and off-roading.

i hope this helps

Chugs, acts like it's not getting gas once warmed up. Idle's fine

This problem can be several things. When your engine is cold, your computer is in a "closed loop" and just pretty much keeps the engine running until warmed up. After reaching operation temperature, the computer starts reading all the sensors. If one sensor is not connected or is defective, you will experience performance problems. Most of the time this will turn on the check engine light, but not always. Second is the fuel pump. This too will cause erratic engine problems.
