Sounds like your overdrive switch or overdrive solenoid in the transmission is the problem. Have this diagnosed by a competent mechanic. Repair should not be very expensive.

Well? Which one? Should the Overdrive be ON or OFF while driving? When I press the button a light comes on that says "O/D OFF".

I leave O/D on all the time, except for performance driving. All overdrive is is a 5th gear that helps you get better gas mileage. Test: when your on the highway leave O/D on : Cruise at about 70 : Then turn it off and watch your RPMs FLY...lol
