blinking overdrive light

Asked by May 01, 2016 at 01:30 PM about the Ford Explorer Sport Trac

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was stress driving a used vehicle that I just purchased from the auction by seeing what kind of pickup it has from 0 to 60 mph, the o/d light started blinking and the car never made it past 50 mph and yes the o/d light continues to blink. Could this be something serious such as needing a new transmission or just as costly in regards to repairs?

O/D light blinking means the transmission is overheating and Blinking also means there are transmission fault codes stored and you can pull them with a scanner to see what is the issue with the trans. Based on your description, yes, it sounds like the Sport Trac will require a rebuild and or replacement transmission.

One of the drawbacks to auto auctions. You always have to be prepared to sink money into the vehicles once you drive it off the lot. Hope you got it for a decent price.
