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.

2005 Mountaineer 2 wheel drive, 6 cyl hard to shift when parked on incline or decline and doesnt feel like shifting into overdrive. Sometimes jump a few inches when put into reverse. Any thoughts.

Yes when you park on an incline you should always put your emergency brake on before shifting to park. Then whenyou are ready to move again put you car in gear before disengaging the emergency brake. this will remove the stress from the transmission.

Should i drive my mercury mountaineer in over drive on or off

Depends on what you are doing...

NEVER TOW in OVERDRIVE, you will burn up the Transmisison

Under normal Driving Conditions, leave it in OD (Overdrive), the vehicle will automatically choose the gear for you

If you are driving up and down Hills (Mountains) where it is shifting back and forth a lot, my own personal preference is to take it out of OD until I am going down the hills. I hate the shifting back and forth and prefer to keep the RPM's up in the 2200 -2350 range to maximize the engine....

2003 Mercury Mountaineer Electrical Problems?!?!?!

O/D light flashing is telling there is a problem with the transmission an trouble codes are stored . The clicking you hear in the rear climate control system is mode door or blend door actuator . There is no accumulator in the rear A/C system . If the A/C system had a accumulator it would be in the engine compartment . Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop.

I know is not what you would like to hear around the holidays, but.... a lot of times when the overdrive flashes, there is a mechanical problem, most likely in your case lockup in the torque converter. i would say it would be a good idea to get it to a garage asap, to save yourself from any other damage that will cause you to do a complete rebuild.
