OD off for this?
I've just moved to Pittsburgh, and the roads here are nothing but very steep inclines, serpentines, and hairpin curves! I've been turning off over-drive when I'm in the steep areas, thinking that will be better for the transmission. Does this sound like a good idea, or am I worrying about nothing?

It's also a good idea to use OD off (or even third/ second gear depending on transmission) on longer/ steeper descends, gives you more compression braking and saves your brakes/ prevents them from overheating.
