What does the shift solenoid do does tell the transmission when to change gears as from 1 to 2 3 to 4 and 4 to od

Depends on the Year of the transmission. The more modern ones have a shift solenoid for each gear. On the newer trans the PCM activates and deactivates each solenoid to put the transmission in the right gear.

The OD on some is an electric lockup of the Torque converter. On the rest, the OD is another gear.

My 99 denali quit shifting into overdrive. Everything still seems pluged in. Any suggestions?

For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

I have a 97ford f 250 4wd it will shift ok and the next time it may not od light will flash down shifts hard sometimes and takes off in 2nd or 3rd its all over the place.

Transmission is having major problems. When the OD light flashes it means the transmission computer is detecting a problem or problems. It needs to go to a service shop for repair. I'd say your looking at a rebuild.

Is the 1-2 shift high also? When you had the valve body off did you check the screens on the governor solenoid and the 3-4 shift solenoid? These tend to plug up.
