    My "check engine" light is flashing, and the message tells me to slow down or switch to lower gear. It also tells me that coolant is low and to cut off engine. However, I thought the engine light wasn't an alert to add fluid.

1997 Mercury Mountaineer Overdrive flashing


When the OD light flashes it means the transmission has developed a fault. As to what the fault may be is yet to be seen without the system being scanned. In many cases the light indicates the transmission is slipping, you may not feel it slipping, but the computer (called the PCM) senses it through the internal speed sensors that measure main shaft input speed and shaft output speed in RPM. Other problems like shift solenoids can cause this as well. Another factor can be the transmission fluid is worn out, it should be replaced along with a new filter every 60,000 miles minimum.

1997 ford contour 4 cylinder transmission shift real hard transmission oil level is to much overdrive light flashes sometimes ,aLso when its not shifting right it sounds like the motOr is racing


the racing you hear is most likely a slipping in the transmission. in terms you may understand is this,you're giving the car gas,but the gas does'nt work,you hear the engine roaring,but slow motion?if this is the case,you may need a transmission fluid filter and fluid change,this may help.depending on how long the problems been going on. 3.0 engines are really good motors.but the transmissions behind the engine demand clean fluid,filter. is your check engine light on? the hard shift tells me somethings wrong already.you may only have a bad speed sensor. suggest you move towards the speed sensor. if the chck engn lghts on. do what i described above. if not,no light on,suggest you reset your computer by disconnecting the positive cable from your battery for 10minutes.this will reset the whole system and keep in mind that any existing problems will keep arising. good luck and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Slower engine speed in 4wd mode, 1st or 2nd gear (auto trans)


mcdevito75 here, I would figure yes, if your shifting while in motion, definetly yes, when you shift your changeing gear ratios in the 4 wheel drive or the transmission, this will cause the engine to slow but also make the gas pedal moe responsive.If you feel or hear this slowing down of the engine while standing still (at a red light) it"s most likely the computer contolled sensor in the tranny. I woulkd still check with my local shop for their advice too.
