99 ford contour with flashing OD light and transmission shifts narly, also sounds like its stuck in 3rd gear and refuses to shift into 4th


normally most overdrives wont work unless proper fluid levels are maintained..check fluid level on stick and add to full..if still having issues, replace filter in trans pan and refill to full.if still having issue time to replace..good luck
