Go to the auto parts store and ask for the best transmission additive for your shifting problem.

SOURCE: 1998 ford f150 triton shifts hard sometimes then

the overdrive light blinking indicates a mechanical or electrical failure in the trans, there will be a trouble code or codes stored in the computer control module of the system, have a OBD 2 self test to determine that code(s), it is key to deciding the problem with the trans, but it is lioely the trans will need an overhaul but that all depends on the malfunction code you get.

Sounds like the solenoids are not working correctly in your transmission. May need to be rebuilt. Check with your local transmission shop about this problem.

1999 ford windstar o/d light blinking


Sounds to me like it may be a sensor in the transmission. Possibly the shift seleniod or the od sensor itself.
