Open Question

I have a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer. The transmission went out and I replaced it, but the transmission that I replaced it with is doing the same thing the old one was doing. Can really use some help!

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.
