Why does it jump out of overdrive at 60+?


no year
no car started
no engine

no model
and no actual transmssion stated(options)
nor if 4wd, or not.
A generic useless answer......
some years this can happen easy
on modern cars the TCM can down shift for many reasons
besides, excess engine load.(like hills)
in 4wd
or other reasons
did you scan the PCM/tcm yet.
that would be first.
TCM detected wide open throttle ,even if false, (tps errors)
TCM sees transmission errors and goes to limp home mode.
scan it
scan it.

Did you have same size tires put on ? With the light flashing there is a DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code stored , have to have diagnostic tool hooked up . That's the only way your going find out what the problem is .

Clicking noise from font driver side wheel 4 wheel drive


There is a vacum powered actuator on the front differential housing on the passenger side. It pushes one way for 2WD and the other way for 4WD. If it gets an erratic vacum signal it can cause the clicking as it goes between 2WD and 4WD. It gets it's vacum from two valves mounted on the firewall just behind the battery(to left). The white line feeds manifold vacum to the valves. Check for vacum at white line with engine running. If no vacum there is a break in line from manifold (not likely in this case). If vacum check the pink and blue lines by applying vacum to each one. The vacum should hold. If not check lines from valves to vacum actuator. If both lines hold vacum check valves. Remove electrical connectors from both valves. Connect a wire from one of the terminals of the valve to ground. Touch a wire from the battery + to the other terminal of the valve. Listen for a clicking sound. If no sound valve is bad. Replace valves(s). Also have someone watch position of actuator shaft as you move the selector between 2WD and 4WD. There should be movement. If there is an intermittent problem sometimes it will and other times it won't.
