Question about 1994 Ford F150 Styleside Supercab
When trans is drove any milage then stoped for a while, then get back in it, and it wont shift into 3rd and overdrive, let it cool down its find, 1995 e40d trans
Automatic trannys can be a pain in the buttocks... there are quite a few things that can cause this problem. It can just be a faulty sensor on the engine that causes this, as when the engine is cold, it will ignore some of the sensors since they haven't heated up and can't give a viable reading if they are cold. So if there is a check engine light on, try and get the codes out to figure out if it has to do with a speed sensor, or airflow sensor, or TPS sensor, and such. The problem can also just be the trans oil level, as the thickness changes when hot, and in most cases the level needs to be checked when hot and can cause confusion as to having the right amount in there. Could be the torque converter being worn out and having problems getting pressure up when the oil is hot since it becomes more liquid. Could also be a faulty solenoid in the tranny that has too high of a resistance when it gets heated up also. And could also be a bad ground due to a crack in the frame or body that opens up when the metal gets warm and warps a bit. So like i said, this kind of transmission problem can be a major pain as it can be so many things, but the first place to start would be to check if there are any codes in the computer of something being defective, as this is the fastest and less costly thing to check, and always a good starting point for most problems. Other than that i can't help you much without having my hands on the truck, so i hope this at least helped you out a little, and if you have more info after some testing, just write back and i'll be glad to hlep out as much as i can. :)

I would change tranny fluid & filter & gasket.
Also make sure the tranny lines & tranny cooler are not clogged.
Make sure there are no leaks & all connections are secure.
If this doesn't help then you probably have a sequenizer gear that is shot which will call for a tranny rebuild. Make sure U use the manufactorer's tranny fluid.
Hope this helps.

When is the last time you changed the fluid? I think your truck come stock with a trans cooler might want to do a trans flush a jiffy lube it is a hundred dollars the cooler might be stopped up the cost to remove and rebuild 2500 if you remove it you get lucky 5 to 7 hundred then you need to put the trans back in your self. the owners manual will tell you to change about every 30,000 to 50,000 miles

SOURCE: overdrive light started flashing
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.

the solenoids in the trans may be sticking,try adding 1 pint of dot 3 brake fluid to the transmission fluid and drive it for a while-give it a chance to work..the brake fluid acts like a cleaner and it makes worn seals and clutches swell a little.just drive it easy for about 20-30 miles,its only about $3.00 and it could save a $1,600.00 rebuild

Solenoid pack in trans. Position module,is just that. Wrong guess. What tran model do you have? You also have other sensors to consider but have to know the trans your working on and the computer and shift stratagy involved to solve this,even if your throwing parts at it.
