I think I understand the question. These transmissions are known for the 4th speed shaft shearing off the splines. 4th being overdrive. This won't let it shift into overdrive and also no engine breaking when you are coasting. In other words, when you are coasting your engine rpms will drop down to idle speed. So when in 3rd or drive manual, you do have engine breaking and the rpms fall slowly. The transmission is gonna have to come out to be repaired. I hope this helps.

I have a 2002 au falcon v8 ute ,automatic. And it seems to surge when i am driving up hills under acceleration?Other than that it runs beautifully.Any idea what it could be?


Depending on the slope of the hill, it could be kicking in and out of overdrive. This is normal to a point. I would take it out of OD if there were a lot of hills to climb. Better for the transmsission.

My 98 GMC Jimmy accelerates really slowly but once past 40km/h it takes off fine and handles dropping gears going up hills fine. What would it be? Would it be my torque converter?


Sounds like theres no 1st gear. Have you put the shifter in 1 and seen if it went, if so try 2-3 if it still accelerates slowly its probally stuck in 1st or 2nd gear, when it goes in to the 3 rd gear it will accelerate normally, also in 4th (OverDrive)

I have a 2001 ford focus, my wife spilt water on the gear shifter and now the overdrive light will not go off even if the button is pushed


First of all...water and electrical connections don't mix well. Since the overdrive button is located on the left side of the shifter, and your wife spilled water on the shifter, the water has likely caused an electrical short.

With the ignition key off, try using compressed air to blow out any possible water or moisture around the shifer button and at the base of the shifter itself. Since the overdrive button has electrical connections inside the shifter, the water has probably caused a short. (I repeat...water and electrical connections don't mix well) If this doesn't cure the problem, you may need to disassemble the shifter mechanism and check for water or moisture. The electrical connections or wiring may be wet inside the shifter, which is likely causing the problem. Blow the areas out with compressed air and make sure everything is clean and dry. Then reassemble the shifter mechanism and reheck to see if this cures the problem.

Good Luck!

I just got O/D off light on in my 1998 Toyota Corolla. What to do


hello subir. This is the over drive function. someone may have accidentally pushed this button so to turn it off you will have to find it and push it again. there is a Overdrive button somewhere on the shifter. It is probably on the side of the actual handle or down near the 4-speed gear numbers, sometimes even in the end of the shifter..

O/D off is NOT a big problem at all- you just don't want to use it all of the time because it runs your engine a lot harder because you are always in a lower gear. That would be used if you were driving up a big hill, for example, and don't want it staying in the highest gear. It gives you more power in circumstances like that

Overdrive does not work on my f 150 2001, and revolutionizes the 70 miles ...


The most common reason on the ford truck of the overdrive not working is due to the wiring to the switch, if its on the shifter then check the wires running to the switch, remove the column covers and check for broken wire and also check all the fuses as that the wires may be chaffed and ground out agaist metal column and pop fuse, this is where i would start, good luck.

2001 vw beetle automatic transmission will not shift into overdrive at highway speeds. why?


I have a 2001 Beetle, the transmisson seen to have a pause and then engage when driving normaly and it's worst on the hills, after driving a distance it smells some kind of quemical that is not oil or gas, the beeping sound and the engine light on the dashboard goes on when stopping (may be the motor) and the temperature blue light goes on constantly. Are all of this related? to transmission? separate issues? The dealer and 2 other private mecanics don't give a perfect diagnosys they are all the time guessing. What's wrong? please advice.
