The previous owner was told that the car wasn't shifting out of overdrive when gearing down causing the car to stall and not restart. He was told disabling the overdrive gear would have no big effect on the car. I have noticed terrible gas mileage when driving over 45 mph for any extended period of time. It needles at 3000 rpm when doing 65 mph. That seems a little excessive to me and I believe that is the cause of

I have replaced the outer tie rods because a shop told me that would correct the issue but the issue does seem to be worse since then.

I have a 1992 Camry V6. When I start up the car, it's fine. About 5 minutes into the drive, the car starts to shake when it's stopped. When I'm on the HWY, the car shakes when I hit 55-62mph. To stop it from shaking, I turn off overdrive. I speed up to 65mph and cruise. To save gas I turn the overdrive back on. As long as I don't slow down, things are fine.

At 65 mph my Mazda Protege LX, manual transmission, slipped from fifth to third gear, causing the car to spin into the ditch. Driving slowly home, (with me following closely behind) the car slipped from third to second and again from second to first, each time causing the car to swerve badly. He had noticed that it was having a hard time in fifth gear a few days ago, so we have been careful. There was no obvious noises coinciding with each slipping.
