What about going back and forth between OD and D? I do that alot. I shift it into OD on highways then into D on regular roads. Does this hurt the trannies????

I still do that all the time. What I watch for is this: if the car is already in OD I won't shift to D until I get it to downshift out of that gear. I don't want to force gears, that'* partially what hurts it.
