Question type: General

1993 Taurus automatic.  While driving around town in normal "city" traffic, is it overly hard on the transmission if one drives full time in "Overdrive" as compared to regular "Drive?"  Or, will driving in "Overdrive" put undue strain on the transmission and ralated parts?

The overdrive will not be under any extra strain in normal city traffic.

Overdrive is made for highway speeds, but no harm will come to driving it in city traffic, it just makes for a quicker acceleration with overdrive off.
