SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: front wheel bearing 2004 escape 4x4

It's nearly impossible unless you have a good air compressor and a powerful 1/2" or larger drive impact gun.The reason is you have to remove the cv axle nut and axle out of the way before removing the bearing and hub.The axle nut requires a couple hundred foot pounds to remove.The procedure is:Jack vehicle safely off the ground,remove wheel and tire.Remove axle retaining nut.Remove balljoint nut and bolt,pry down on lower control arm,and disengage balljoint and lower arm from spindle.Now the axle can be released from the hub,but leave the other end of the axle in the trans,just set off to the side out of the way.At this point,there are two ways to change the bearing.The wheel bearing is a double roller,cartridge type with the hub containg the wheel studs,pressed into the bearing.Remove the entire spindle assembly from the suspension strut,OR leave the spindle attached to the strut,and remove the bearing and hub from the spindle.Some guys swear by taking the spindle to a press,and pressing the bearing assembly out with a bottle jack.I just use a bushing driver set,and ball peen hammer,and remove the hub from the bearing...then remove the snap ring retaing the bearing in the spindle,then drive the bearing out of the spindle with the hammer and drivers.There you have it.Reverse procedure for reassembly

You may be losing the speedo cable. Others have reported the light flashing related to this. You may also want to check tranny oil condition (color should be clear red, and smell should not have a burnt smell to it)...

2004 Ford Sportrac having problems with trans OD flashing on and off and sticking in gear?


When the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) isn't engaging or locks in engagement the light flashes a warning...The TCC solenoid may stick due to dirty transmission fluid...If the Check Engine Light
(CEL) is not lit have your transmission fluid changed...If it is lit the code is probably pointing at a defective TCC, Computer (PCM) or the clutch itself... you can take the vehicle to an auto parts store and have them read and define the trouble code for free...saailer

My escape keeps misfiring on cylinder 6 and has another multiple misfire, i have to change the spark plugs seems like every other month and ive replaced the boots and it still misfires anyone have thi


The flashing light means the problem is serious and you should not drive the truck. This probably happens when you are accelerating.
Since each cylinder has a coil, it could be moisture in the main wiring harness or a connection.
Could also involve the fuel injectors. You could have water in the gas for example.
The code means that cylinder is not producing power, not a lack of spark.

WHEN I START THE ENGINE THE OVERDRIVE OFF LIGHT COMES ON. I HAVE TO PUSH THE SWITCH TO GET IT GO OFF. joe king


This is correct! On other vehicles like the Ford Escape, when you start the vehicle the Overdrive is always on, and to turn it off, you would have to press the button to turn it off.

If this is just now happening for the first time, please include the details leading up to this issue.

2006 ford escape.. #1. abs light on & stays on. #2. 4wd light comes on,flashes 8 times then gos off


Changing the sensors &/or tone ring may work temporarily but it won't last. I have a 2005 and have had it done and it kept happening. Had it serviced at dealer, asked dealer how to fix it or make light go out and on and on....after I think 5 yrs. it is still on. It hasn't affected my vehicle as far as I can tell. Comes on blinks 8 times, goes off....drive another 8/10ths of a mile and it comes back on, flashes eight times...and so it goes tidily bomMust be an Escape kinda thing.

1992 Ford F250 Diesel does not engage in any gear including reverse. Any suggestions?


there is a part of the linkage in the steering column,that wears and or breaks,a steering colmn specialist can check this for you and replace it if that is the problem
if that is not the problem, it sounds like you need to take to a transmission mechanic.QUESTION: is the overdrive light on gear shift flashing/ if it is flashing, the problem is definetly in the transmission,not the linkage

Transaxle warning light came on while driving on highway. Pulled off the highway. Light went off. Pulled back onto highway. Light staying off for now


Watch out! You're lucky the violent lunging didn't happen prior to the light, as well as losing all power when the engine cuts outs. After this happened to me, the light was steadily flashing and the van would not go into gear. Good luck, I'm still waiting to see if a recall is gonna happen. Very dangerous.

A green light flashes on & off on tachometer. it looks like this 0/0 off


I believe what you're looking at is O/D off . This is the overdrive / overdrive off indicator. There is a switch on the gear selector lever to turn the overdrive on or off to change this. Press the button if nothing happens there is no change and it is flashing that usually indicates an internal transmission problem, check the fluid. Adjust the level if needed and make sure it is not black/burnt. Check for shavings in the fluid. If your tranny starts acting funky, you'll know why.
