Stop over spending your hard earned dollars and ask about it check over your manual for scheduled maintenance tell the mechanic has it been done is it possible to have been over looked ..

i have a 01 ford sport trac has famous 2nd to 3rd slip.. and eratic shifting.. had all fluids changed and sensors in tranny.after a few days of driving did the same.. then i remembered that a class mate was a well respected transmission mech. i got in touch with him.. he has built coverters and transmissions and knows and races fords.. told me to go to auto parts store and get a ground wire and run from negative side of battery to fender bolt did and problem solved shifts great.. also told me to clean all transmission connections which i will do.. thanks to jpt transmissions. i used braided ground wire.. more power and great shifting for under 7 dollars told me a lot of rebuilding goes on when it is a electrical issue

http://www.fordservoboretransmissionfixsoluti... is where you can get a fix for your transmission if the OD light is flashing or Check Engine light is on. If you get Codes for your trans like PO 775 or PO 745, it is most likely the servo bores. This place gets you a 200.00 fix that you can do in your driveway in 2 hours. It fixed my 03 2 weeks ago and is now doing fine! Ford originally replaced my transmission case at 36,000 miles for this problem. Now it happened again at 148,000. Puts more mileage on a nice vehicle!

I have 07 Escape and i drove an hour south this morning with no problems then on way home my OD light flashes saying its off I have never had any issues from my escape till this today I have looked over other postings and am wondering if snow and slush on road is interfering with signal as stated in a posting seen above or rusted cable I will pass the information on to my mechanic Thanks for the postings so others have an idea what may have happened instead of assuming trannys just bad

Hi I just bought a used 1996 contour. It have been sitting up for a while. So I had to put power steering fluid in it because the sterring wheek was HARD. So I back the car up and went to the gas station and the car start smoking that's only because I didn't use a FUNNEL so the car smoke for at least 30 minutes so I went to the car wash and put some water in the water thing. Then I tried to reverse it wouldn't let me ion think anything wrong with the transmisson or the engine because its not making any NOISE. Its just that O/D light blinking on and off and it will JERK then it will stop. So can somebody tell me what's going on or what should I do.

i have a 2002 ford explorer od lights flash after starting the vehicle but a few seconds before the flashing the thing runs great as soon as it starts flashing it runs crappy like its starving for fuel and when driving it shifts slow into third gear and then dont want to start if i shut the truck off until it sits for a while...sounds similar to being a speed sensor but would that be the reason for the truck to run like that? this just started doing this out of the blue until now its has run great

Well I just got a rebuilt transmission for my 2002 Ford Explorer a week and a half ago. I drove it out of the shop and the OD light came on and started blinking. took it back a few days later and they said they missed one celunoid ( sp) patch and replaced it. Over drive light IS STILL coming on when I'm on the highway. Sometimes at 50 MPH sometimes 65mph. I dont know what to do I just spent 1900 on the transmission and it still isnt fixed.
Thanks
I have the same problem....o/d off light starts flashing at 50 - 65 mph.....been doing it for 4 years....anyone know why?

I have a 2003 exploree w 110,000 miles speed sensor replaced but o/d light still flashes i was told its a problem w transmission and ford has know about this for sometime and said not enough people have complained about it. I was doing 65 mph on the highway when it went to 10 mph w my kids in the car. I also filed a complaint w NHTSA. More people need to let Ford know whats going on so they can pay for it.

Try the speed sensor..... if its an explorer they have been know for problems w rhis look it up on carcmplaints.com people need to let ford know so ford can do a recall on it. Ford is supposed to be a good vehicle amd u pay alot of it. They should back there vehicles instead of sticking it to people.
