overdrive light flashing
Hello minnow-- Often I suspect that a flashing warning light could be a false alarm, but the hard shifting that you feel indicates that you do have a transmission problem. You better take it to a transmission specialist for a look. Your problem could be as simple as low transission fluid, but I would suggest a complete diagnosis from a pro. Good luck from Bovan.
