I have another o/d question need help

Ok I know that when the green light is on it says O/D off it means that o/d is off right well when I turn the car off and turn it back on the light goes away so I have to press the button to turn o/d off again. I have a 2000 v6

Can someone help me this is bugging me now

The reason is the car automatically starts off with the OD activated and will alway do this . It is for economy and emmissions reasons . You could spend a lot of money to have the car reprogrammed to start with OF off , but having to push a button is far cheaper and really it is nto such a bad thing really.

They all are the same.

Overdrive is 24/7 "on" until you push the button then O/D is locked out.

So which is better to drive with it on or off my car seems to drive better with it off when I put it on it vibrates and hesitates a little but when it's off it's fast and smooth
