Volvo 940 T wagon Overdrive

Asked by Nov 20, 2016 at 04:54 PM about the 1995 Volvo 940 Turbo Wagon

Question type: General

I have a 95 940 T Wagon, and when I engage the
overdrive on the highway, the RPMs go UP, as if the
car has shifted down a gear... this can't be right,
can it? There doesn't seem to be any slipping within
the gear itsself, or problems shifting into it. The OD
light comes on, there is no hesitation at all, it just
doesn't make sense to me that the OD gear would
rev at higher RPM than 4th.... doesn'5 seem like
that would save me any gas. Help?
