The OD light is flashing to let u know a fault has occurred in the transmission electronic controls or that it is slipping plus other issues, go to Kragen or Autozone and ask them to run a trouble code test, it is free, post the code back here for me to look at.

2004 After about a mile of road travel, why does transmission begin to slip?


Usually a transmission slipping isn't due to the drive shaft, but the transmission itself. I know this might sound a like a crazy question, but have you checked the transmission fluid levels, could be a leak, if not full would cause slippage.

2004 Ford Sportrac having problems with trans OD flashing on and off and sticking in gear?


When the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) isn't engaging or locks in engagement the light flashes a warning...The TCC solenoid may stick due to dirty transmission fluid...If the Check Engine Light
(CEL) is not lit have your transmission fluid changed...If it is lit the code is probably pointing at a defective TCC, Computer (PCM) or the clutch itself... you can take the vehicle to an auto parts store and have them read and define the trouble code for free...saailer

Why does my overdrive off light starts flashing on my 99 mercury mountianeer


On some makes of vehicles the overdrive light flashes because the computer has logged a fault code,sometimes because it is overtemp eg too hot (maybe trans fluid issue might require servicing,or fluid level is low. Try checking fluid level and condition if possible. Good luck there.

I have 1992 Toyota camry LE 4 cyl, 172,000 miles. The Overdrive off light went on. Some say I need my transmission fluid flushed (automatic) I have heard pros and cons about this. This light went back off...


your overdrive off light came on because the transmission was running too hot. You need to do two things; change your fluid and clean the trans oil cooler in or in front of your radiator. dropping the temperature of a transmission will prolong its life dramatically. I have diagnosed and rebuilt quite a few of them, and I do a lot of off road modifications where transmissions have to do extreme work.

90 eagle talon esi rumbles driving down the road?


Sounds like you have a problem in the Overdrive sensor or the lockup in the converter. You should see if a scanner will identify this problem. Ask at the autoparts store about "What they show for an Overdrive switch or Servo?". Autozone, Advance, and Oreillys do free scans.

Check your transmission fluid as the trans works hard in top gear with pressure directly driving the tallest gear in the trans. Low fluid levels could be causing the converter to kick out of Lockup.

Overdrive light comes on and wont go off till you turn off motor


I had that same problem a few months ago. I didn't really think anything of it because my car still drove the same and I didn't know it could turn into a big problem. A year ago I had my transmission rebuilt on my cherokee then this year a few weeks after that little light started having problems, my car just stopped moving. I had it towed back to the shop and they needed to replace a bad part on my transmission again. So if you've previously had problems with your transmission I would suggest getting that checked out so you don't get stuck on the side of the road for 4 hours like I did. Sorry if this doesn't help, I'm not exactly a car expert I just have lots of problems with mine.

Overdrive cuts off buy itself while driving


when the transmission overheat light (this is for the fluid) comes on the transmission control module pulls the trans out of OD to try and cool it down, this is called failure mode strategy, it is built into the programming of the control module, the signal from the trans is most likely incorrect, but the module doesn't know that, replace the transmission fluid temperature sensor.

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.
