It means your vehicle is trying to save the transmission from overheating and needing replacement. You either have low fluid possibly from a leak or you have a plugged transmission filter. To check your fluid, follow the directions printed in your manual or on the dip stick itself. If it seems full and a nice red color, not burnt smelling or dark red or brown, then you need a filter change, not a flush. A flush forces new fluid in to replace all the old fluid, but not the filter. A filter change involves removing the pan from the transmission and replacing about 90% of the old fluid. The flush works good as routine maintenance, but if your having problems, insist on a filter replacement. Then have the flush done 50,000 miles or 3 years later for best results. Either way, $150 at a shop now is going to hopefully save you from $3000 for a new transmission in the near future.

This mean thet there are some problems of transmision and the computer doesn't allow you to overdrive becouse you can destroy it. It's a protection measure. You must go to service for a test.

Check your transmission sensors with a network diagnostics. These are often to go bad, they also play a big role when it comes to shifting properly.

Have you checked the Fluid Levels?
Have you checked the OBDII Codes?

I have a 1992 toyota camry, the transmision seems to work fine untill it worms up. ?After it worms up it wont go into reverse, and it does not seem to come out of overdrive, plus the overdrive light...


You change fluid because it breaks down from the
heat,one of it's main jobs is to remove heat

Fluid is not a fix for anything

Sounds as though your due for a rebuild

There are no new transmissions
Only new one time, when it is built

The overdrive lights blinks when I'm driving on the expressway whats that?


The operating system has spotted a problem with the transmission and is blinking the lite as a result. Usually when the light is blinking it means that the transmission isn't capable of, or being allowed to, shift into overdrive. I would have a transmission shop check this one out as soon as possible to see what is causing the light to blink as there may be a more serious problem happening within the system or with a transmission component.
