I had the same problem. Transmission fluid pump wears out and caused low pressure for the transmission fluid circulation resulting in a major transmission failure. The repair is overhauling the transmission. A Mazda dealer will charge about $4,000.00 overhauling the transmission but you should be able to have a transmission place do the job for about half the money.

Tansmission slips

When you say the trans fluid is fine, is it a clear reddish color? does it smell burnt? also does your check engine light come on at all? how many miles are on the car? GM usually recommends a trans fluid flush at 100k miles under normal driving conditions and at 60k miles under more severe driving conditions. it sounds like there may be an internal problem with the bands or the pressure may be low. I would recommend taking the car to GM dealer for a better diagnosis as it sounds like it will continue to slip when it gets to normal operating temperature and it will get worse in the future. another option is to add 2 bottles of Lucas trans fix (48 ounces total) to the trans fluid but you will need to pump out that much fluid if the trans fluid is already full so you don't over fill it. the lucas trans fluid additive does work pretty good unless their is serious internal damage already done. Good luck!

Od light blinks

Blinking OD light indicates trans issue, have trans codes pulled, this will give you an idea of what is going on.

Transmission slips once in a while and O/D light comes on after acceleration

Can't fix slipping

Once that starts your only option
is a complete rebuild

My advice is to change the fluid every 3 years
& don't flush,just remove the trans pan

Second --once you notice any trans issues you
immediately return home & park it until resolved

90% of all trans issues are a result of not doing that

I once owned a trans shop,but that is my personal
experience & opinion,the professional part , doesn't
hurt the learning experience

I have a 2000 Volvo s40. Yesterday my automatic transmission light began blinking. I stopped by my local volvo dealership this morning and they told me the light only blinks when you need a new...

I would change out the transmission fluid and put some transmission additives in there, see how the transmission shifts after that. Worse case have the transmission rebuilt.

The struts are about $150 apiece plus labor. If the car runs fine besides those two problems I would fix it and keep it, it's alot cheaper than a car payment.

U will have a fault code stored in the computer from the OD light blinking, find out what it is and you will know where to look for the trouble with the trans, but if it is slipping it will at the very least need a fluid change and inspection for clutch debris in trans pan, then u can decide what will need to be done.

2005 Ford Escape XLT 4WD - Overdrive light blinking...

The overdrive light blinking means that a fault code has been stored in the computer, this can be for many different reasons. The car isn't actually turning overdrive on and off, it is just a way to alert you of a problem. Getting the computer scanned will provide a fault code eg. P(XXXX) if you can get this code I can help you further. -Jared

Problem need help

You are going to have to overhaul the trans, shifting problems can often be fixed without an overhaul, but when it slips the trans is toast, also replace the shift solenoids and the torque converter while your at it, they don't come with the kit but will need to be replaced.
