If the fluid is full, it's most likely time to replace the transmission. How many miles are on the car? If you keep driving it like that, you will find yourself on the side of the road soon.

    it can also be the turbine speed sensor. i thought no one would read this. most importantly is get the proper code for the problem. replace what really needed.

    Change your oil first but I had this same problem and what it come down to is the shift solenoid plug which is located on top of the trans to the right of the trans range sensor/neutral safety switch. Remove the battery to get better access. If the wires are looking back with cracked insulation, unplug it from the solenoid, check the plug and put some dilectric grease and firmly plug it back in make sure the clip is also back in. If this doesn't solve it then go to the local salvage yard and cut a plug off another ford contour and wire connect replace it to your car. These go bad and not the shift solenoid itself

O/d off light is flashing


Needed transmission oil replace. If problem came back, replace the the turbine speed sensor (or transmission speed sensor, same thing). I fixed the O/D light flashing problem, but I did it in reverse order. Hopefully it is just dirty transmission oil that cause the problem and you can save yourself from replacing the turbine speed sensor.
