Question about 2003 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

My overdrive light starts flashing as soon as I put my car in drive and the check engine light has come back on, but not when I initially start the vehicle(the overdrive light). I had some work done on my car on Thursday to the fuel injection system. Prior to that I did not have this problem, but did have other problems after I got my oil changed almost two weeks ago. Took the vehicle to O'reilly's to have them check the codes since the check engine light was on. Was told codes PO316, PO201 and code PO301 first. Attempted to fix those problems, and my car was still running poorly. We changed the fuel filter, all six spark plugs, replaced my water pump and replaced the coil that was having the misfire. No dice, the car still ran poorly. Next step was to have work done on the fuel injector system. Car ran fine from 12pm until 10:15pm when the check engine light came back on the car hesitated a bit, the RPMs went crazy and now we have the check engine light back on and the O/D light flashing like crazy. Car has problems accelerating also. Can someone please give me a small clue as to what my be wrong because I am tired of playing the guessing game. Bare in mind all of these repairs were done by supposed to be mechanics. Thank you FixYa!!

I had a car that did that and in the end my computer was not working properly. I replaced the computer with a used one out of another car and is ok now.

SOURCE: #5 cylinder misfire

I have a corolla and had #4 cylinder misfire also diagnosed at autozone. After changing the spark plugs, problem persisted, along with the same error code, so they recommended changing the spark plug wires, and that is what fixed it. I would have changed the rotor cap too, but was low on dough. Glad that was not the problem.

Drive it into a dark place, or wait till dark. When it's running poorly, see if you can see any spark flying around. It sounds like plug wires.

My overdrive light is flashing on and off on my 2000 ford Windstar van could a blown fuse be causing it


First of all have an auto parts store check for trouble codes...The flashing overdrive light is a warning that the overdrive unit is overheating and/or low on fluid...#1 choice is overheating and you will be looking at a costly rebuild if this is not attended too soon...Have your radiator, which also has a transmission cooler flushed, cleaned and refilled immediately...Have someone check if fluid is leaking then cleaned and filled with fresh fluid...saailer

When the a transmission solenoid is malfunction, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

The engine light is the "check engine light" and is telling you there is a diagnostic trouble code stored n the computer.The overdrive light is flashing because the code(s) is related to the transmission.This could mean something as simple as a bad sensor or a major failure.If you could go to a parts store and have codes pulled then i can give you some kind of ideal what direction you will need to go.

Over drive light on shifter blinks and check engine light is lit.


You need to have it scanned for codes. The flashing overdrive light means it has trouble codes that pertain to the transmission.

2000 f-250 running rough, overdrive light flashing


Get the codes that were saved when the "engine light" came on and post them here. (You can get them retrieved for free from Auto Zone).

I'm going to take real *wild* guess that somehow that rough spot you hit actually impacted the oxygen sensor and disconnected it or damaged it.

Overdrive light started flashing


the OD light is flashing to let u know a fault has occurred in the transmission electronic controls or that it is slipping plus other issues, go to Kragen or Autozone and ask them to run a trouble code test, it is free, post the code back here for me to look at.

have someone scan it for transmission codes. Most likely it is your Torque Converter that is going out, but it could be a solenoid, What color was your fluid?
