Sounds like your transmission is telling you it has a problem. Something electric is going bad. Take it to a shop and have them diagnose it.

My 2005 ford expidition O/D keeps blinking


Codes would help. Could be a solenoid or wiring. If you have been pulling the Bobcat for a long time, Most likely OD clutches are gone. These weren't made to pull heavy loads. I tell all that have trailers not to use OD when pulling. Turn it off.

My 97 expedition starts and runs good I'm driving down the road, Then the overdrive light starts blinking on the end of the shifter, So when I come to a stop then start to go again it shifts real hard....


With the light flashing ,codes are stored in the transmission control module . Have the codes check an this will tell you whats wrong . Probably a sensor or shift solenoid or line pressure solenoid .

I have a 1996 Jimmy 4x4 vortex engine, the tranny will shift from overdrive to a lower gear all by itself while going down the highway causing the rpms to go up over 3000. I pull over and shut the engine...


Hello,

A couple of things come to mind that can cause the issue you are having;

1. Make sure your transmission fluid level isn't low.

2. If your transmission fluid hasn't been changed in a long time, you could have some deposits
built up in the valve body, or the screening could be partially clogged.

3. You may have a faulty shift solenoid/shift motor.

Number 3 is most likely your problem.

I hope this helps you.

1992 Ford F250 Diesel does not engage in any gear including reverse. Any suggestions?


there is a part of the linkage in the steering column,that wears and or breaks,a steering colmn specialist can check this for you and replace it if that is the problem
if that is not the problem, it sounds like you need to take to a transmission mechanic.QUESTION: is the overdrive light on gear shift flashing/ if it is flashing, the problem is definetly in the transmission,not the linkage

2004 f150 transmission fault light


Sounds like the transmission got overheated. I would not worry if shutting it off and restarting got rid of the fault.

Shifting problems


never seen a dodge and autos a bit thin on the ground here in spain but i think the control you are looking for is on the side of the gearbox ,and if its like VW then its not cheap ,i repaired one by removing the offending item and drilling the rivits out then cleaning with acetone the paths on one side and rubbing a soft lead pencil on the brushes refitting a couple of nuts and bolts with instant gasket in the join and this car is still driving around a year later.

D4 gear lights ( dashboard ) starts blinking even I'm using other gears


The D4 light blinking is the vehicle computer telling you there is a transmission malfunction and transmission codes are stored in the computer's memory.The codes have to be pulled out manually unless it has an OBD2 connector.A transmission shop or Honda dealer can pull the codes.
