Springfield, IL

Self-described MNA (Mr. Know-it-all) I've been in, around, under, next-to, and towed almost everything with wheels. I work at a very busy tire and auto repair shop alongside 3 Master-techs and 30+ year auto and tire sales veterans. I don't deal in absolutes, I work with Murphys' Law in my front pocket, and Common Sense is priority # 1.

You'll need to address these issues one at a time. The Transmission is in need of a specialist to determine whats wrong with the overdrive. By running the car without the overdrive on & functioning, its costing you miles per gallon as the engine is working harder at a higher rpm. As far as your 'not running right' issue, a proper diagnostic check by a qualified technician might serve you well.
