Hey 88: Here's what works for me . As soon as I start the car , I turn the overdrive off and use it as a normal 4 speed until I get on the highway where I kick in 4 th gear overdrive. If you forget to deactivate the overdrive, you will be reminded as soon as you grab second gear and the car reacts as if you were in fourth. The gearing with the overdrive activated is just too high except on the highway where 90 MPH is just 2200 RPM.
