97 Ford expedition blinking check engine light, running rough.


A flashing CEL means that you might be causing damage to your CATs. It will flash when the PCM senses a misfire bad enough to cause fuel to dump into the exhaust. When that happens lay off the throttle. Chances are you've got a bad injector or bad plug.

Use a code reader to know the real reason that check engine light come on.

OVERDRIVE LIGHT FLASHING ON A 97 FORD EXPLORER,SOUNDS LIKE NOISE COMING FROM TORQUE CONVERTER ALSO.


Light flashing means a code is stored in the transmission computer.A stored code can cause high line pressure which could cause some pump noise, but most ;likely the torque converter is starting to break up.The codes will tell the story.Good luck.

With the light flashing ,codes are stored in the transmission control module . Have the codes check an this will tell you whats wrong . Probably a sensor or shift solenoid or line pressure solenoid .

When I start to drive my ford explorer the over drive light O/D come on and start to flashing. How I can fix the problem?


he overdrive off light flashing indicates that a problem with your
transmission has been detected. Take it to the dealer or a transmission
shop and get it checked out. If you continue to drive the Explorer with
the O/D OFF light flashing you can possibly damage the transmission.


Ford has issued a TSB on this problem. Has to do with a transmission oil pump defect and repair procedure.

Some vehicles may experience excessive torque converter slippage, torque converter not engaging, or Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) 628 or P0714 stored in memory. This may be caused by damage to the fluid pump support seal and/or to the groove on the pump where the seal is located.
ACTION:
Inspect the fluid pump seal for damage. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.
SERVICE PROCEDURE:
1. Follow normal diagnostic procedures as listed in the appropriate Service Manual.

Inside Light flashing on and off 4x4 and overdrive lights causing transmission to shift wrong


the lights flashing are not what is causing the transmission to shift badly, the purpose of these lights is to alert you that a problem exists in the electronic system and you need the electronic control system tested to determine the cause of the problem(s), any time these lights flash there will be fault codes recorded in the computer control module, a qualified Ford tech will then look at those codes and give you some idea of what needs to be repaired.

The "off" light for the overdrive shut off flashes.


the light is flashing to alert you to the fact that a fault has been detected in the transmission, the most common is excessive slippage detected by the torque speed sensor as compared to the outshaft shaft speed sensor, U will need to have the system tested for the stored trouble code that is set when this OD light blinks.

OK, here is an update - The torque booster pump broke, so I had transmission rebuilt at Benchmark. So far a year and 20K miles later we have no problems.
