Should you drive your car in drive or overdrive?

If it has overdrive use it! it is a "highway gear" it will make no difference what so ever until you get up to speed then it will shift into overdrive and save you gas!

Can you Tow automatic transmission cars?

If its a light load, if it will be frequently used its worth getting a transmssion cooler to save the trannys life. Its also a good idea when towing to drive with the over drive turned off. Overdrive isn't meant to handle a load, just to freewheel to save gas on the highway. Towing a load with the overdrive on can burn out the overdrive.

Can you save gas in a jeep by driving in 3 instead of drive?

Typically "Drive" (4th gear on most vehicles) is your OverDrive gear (OD). Some vehicles have 5 and 6 gears. It is designed to run in a lower RPM range at higher speeds to save gas. The higher your engine is revving, the more fuel it is demanding and thus worse gas mileage. Unless you are towing, struggling up a hill, or need to increase speed without flooring it, you should leave the car in "Drive" or "OverDrive".

What car should you get if you are trying to save gas?

One with good gas mileage.

What are the uses of overdrive and when should it be used?

Overdrive is for highway driving, which is great for gas mileage. Also, not to use overdrive when going up or down hills because it makes your transmission work harder. That's what I was told anyways.

When should you use the over-drive on a 2005 Kia Sedona?

I would use the overdrive during normal driving. How ever if you need that little extra power then i would just turn it off. haveing the overdrive on all the time during normal driving " not pulling a boat or another car" should save you a little gas. just think of your overdrive as a half gear need more power go to the full gear
