That's a good bet, and a good place to start. Try that, and maybe some new spark plugs just for the heck of it (they're inexpensive), and see if you run better afterward.

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.

Why is the Overdrive disengaging while im driving


It is impossible to answer your question without knowing the YEAR, MAKE, and MODEL of your vehicle.
That being said, the overdrive will disengage when you are climbing hills or otherwise accelerating while driving.
If the overdrive disengages too easily, suspect a vacuum leak or an engine output power loss.

Not sure when overdrive is on or off


Overdrive acts like a final gear. It's easily noticed if it is on or off when cruising at higher speeds, as when operating the switch you will notice the engine revs alternate between higher and lower rev ranges.
When the engine revs drop, then overdrive is on, and when they rise, then it is effectively off.

The overdrive function works just like any other gear in that it reduces the torque from the engine to the wheels, and allows the engine speed to drop. This isn't always beneficial when climbing hills or towing however, or when driving hard, as you may prefer that the gearbox wasn't always changing gear into overdrive, as overdrive reduces the torque from the engine as a means to increase fuel economy and reduce stress. It is for this reason that the overdrive can be disengaged, effectively reducing the number of gears in the gearbox which you have available to you.

So simply put, for most drivers, in most circumstances, they will not need to turn the overdrive off.

In answer to the light on/off, the majority of vehicles have overdrive in the 'OFF' position when the light is on. It's a reminder light (amber) that you likely aren't employing the best fuel saving technique.

Hi I'm an owner of a 1998 Honda Oddysey. I would like know the mechanics of using its automatic gear transmissions and specific function. For example when do I use D3 or D2 etc... And how do I shift...


Hi,
Gear usage.
The Drive is for normal driving.
D2 is for hill/steep climbing drive.
D3 is for hill/steep going down drive.
If you have overdrive button, use it when you exceed 60mph.
That's all you have to do when you see roads that is going up nor down.

Thaks for asking FixYa!

Where is overdrive button located on 2002 Taurus


For a floor shift version, O/D (the D with a black square around it) is the overdrive position. There is no button.

For column shift, htere is a similar O/D position, no button.

Always drive in O/D except when climbing or descending steep hills.

please rate, thanks

There are two D on my cars gear list i dont know which one is overdrive & what is the difference between drive & overdrive.the car is 2004 mercury sble


The D nearest to N is the overdrive. In every day driving just leave it in overdrive. When climbing or decending steep hills you can downshift into Drive, this will prevent the transmission from constantly shifting between gears.

Jerking while driving


If you park your vehicle for a long time, you run the risk of having contaminated fuel in the tank. This happened to a car my wife purchased, and it was the last thing I found. It proved to be the problem. What you need to do is remove the fuel from the tank and then have the tank flushed. Fill it with fresh fuel and replace the fuel filter.

These transmissions have a tendency to suddenly stop, and they are quite expensive to rebuild. It's hard to diagnose one without being there, I would you find a reliable tech, possibly from one of your acquaintences or whatever to check this out for you. There are entirely too many **** out there, so be cautious, but please do get an opinion from someone who can actually drive it.
