Question about 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX
When shifting from 1st to second engine reves up before shifting to second. overdrive light blinks all the time when driving. sometimes only does this for the first shift & then shifts normal for 10 or so miles. overdrive light still blinking. trans fluid pink & full. have always done regulalor servives. tranny shop pulled trans pan & very clean inside, also replaced both in & output speed sensors. code still says speed senor is problem. also overdrive shifts fine. car has only 103,000 miles. have owned car since 22,000. could it be in the electronics somewhere. if driven long enough engine check light will also come on. HELP. THANKS
Your transmission fluid contain water,thats why the colour of the fluid changed to pink.And of such the clutch is slipping causing the engine to reve up before shifting - Check transmission cooler.
