Your transmission fluid contain water,thats why the colour of the fluid changed to pink.And of such the clutch is slipping causing the engine to reve up before shifting - Check transmission cooler.

SOURCE: Can't shift trans out of first gear 1991 explorer

can you look under the vehicle at the transmission, look on top, do you see any linkages? I'm not sure you will, just want to check.

The 5 sp trans that is in the Ford Explorer is normally a "top loader" meaning that the shift linkage is internal to the transmission, if this is so, while your looking do see an access plate in the floor board above the transmission, if not to repair it you will have to remove it. if you are not comfortable with this procedure, I recommend that you find a quality repair shop in your area.

I tiredon the running around asking question about overdrive blinking right after it shift from second to third gear thats were the problem starts overdrive blinking the rest the gear work perfectly


It is safe, and even recommended to use "Drive" and dis-engage the "Overdrive" when driving in the city, and definitely when towing...You can work on the problem by changing tranny fluid, and filter...or look into the Lucas Oil Transmission Stabilizer bottle treatment...Hope this helps.
