2003 Ford taurus transanxle Light comes on

I have a 2003 ford taurus, the transanxle light blinks. Is that the sign to jump ship or is it a easy cheap fix?

    Twice while driving 2 hours from home on a trip, I had no problems with this warning light, but on return journey after an hour out the light came on...stopped car, started again after 5 minutes, no problem, until another hour passed, repeated stopping and starting. Drove at home--no warning light. Car is garaged at home and stands outside in salt air while on trip. Our faithful mechanic saw nothing amiss except noted that there was a diagnostic notation--but couldn't turn anything off. Recommended another garage with more sophisticated diagnostics. Once before this happened on a long trip, stopped at garage after being on road for 1 1/2 hrs and they put it on dx machine, turned it further problems for 3 years. So we aren't really worried, think it is a sensor problem. Did have fluids all changed this time--$200 due from 40-60K miles. We are at 55K. Don't know if this will help--either changing fluids or responding!

2003 Ford Taurus with code P0316 only

Code 316 means the engine computer has detected a miss-fire on startup. You normally get a code for the cylinder causing the problem.
If the spark plugs are original, I would start with checking them for signs of damage or excessive wear.

It's normally located right at brake pedal arm, up toward top where it pivots. You'll see a switch with a plunger that gets pushed in when pedal is released. Usually pretty easy to do, but you have to stand on your head sometimes to do it. ha-ha
