Question about Ford F-250
A flashing OD light indicates a stored trouble code inside your trucks computer. The best thing to do is drive it to your local auto parts store and borrow (for free) there on board diagnostics (OBD II) scan tool. This electronic took hooks up underneath the drivers side steering wheel and will obtain the trouble code. After you get the code, look in the back of a Haynes manual (also avalible at the auto parts store) and match the code number that came up on the display to the code number found in the repair book. This will save you time and money vs. replacing parts that don't need to be replaced and takes the guess work out of the repair. The trouble code will most likely have something to do with the tach and the transmission

Engine stalls cold or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.
