Sounds like you have a bad selinoid in your transmission. Take it to a local transmission shop and have them look at it. 9 out of 10, its the selinoid. The place will probably recommend to have them all changed. Spend the extra cash and do it. That should fix you right up ! have a good day !!

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

4L60E Transmission wont shift into 2nd or Overdrive

Check the fluid level. You may want to consider having the transmission flushed. (I recommend BG Products flush system.) Properly flushing the trans removes any varnish the may have built up causing erratic behavior.

****** wont shift

Sounds like your trans is on the down side of burning up if it's an automatic. I'd have it towed to the shop. Could be as simple as a shifter solenoid, or a clogged valve body to as bad as having a trans rebuild.

My 2002 Ford Ranger Edge 4x4 4.0L V6 has an overdrive problem. It shifts into all gears normally and runs like a top. The only problem is when I really step on the gas and kick it into overdrive, the truck...

when you step on the gas to the floor the trans is not trying to shift into overdrive, over drive connects as you are at a steady speed which lowers rpm and increase fuel mpg. when you step on the gas hard you are telling the trans to down shift to a passing gear,which calls for more fuel and air which is what you are not getting. A few things could cause this, bad crank sensor,ecm, fuel pump, fuel filter,knock sensor etc. I would get a full blown diagnostic done which will check fuel press,timing,sensors,codes,etc normally around $100.00 . But have this done at a very reputable shop and be there when they do it so they can explain everything to you, and make sure you understand things before somebody starts saying well it could be this and now i think its this or that.

Odd shifting 99 jeep grand cherokee

A common problem with most overdrive units.Overdrive should only be used above 40 mph. With the mileage odds are that you need to have transmission looked at professionally.It maybe time to consider rebuilding it.I do not see a trans service of being a benefit.
