Do you understand what overdrive is? If off it keeps your truck from upshifting into 4th...of course it will affect MPG if your doing 70 down the freeway at 3500 rpm's in third gear.

How's your throw out bearing treating you? And the squeaky clutch? And the worse MPG you get?

(Still give you props for your _______ pictures though. )

Q, why does my tranny looses its "smoothness" when turning off the OD?

It's not terrible, but a it's about the only complaint I have with my truck!

When you press the button a light should come on that says "od off"...aka overdrive off.

My overdrive drops me 750+ rpm running 60 mph on the highway. That's a lot of gas.

Hey guys, I run my tires at 4.3 psi. Is this bad for gas mileage? And I didn't have new oil so I used old veggy oil from my fries.

4.3 is a little low 5psi is ideal for best gas milage. And as long as it synthetic veggie oil, you should be good.
