2002 Ford Escape O/D off light blinking. Please help.
I have a 2002 ford escape and I am getting a flashing o/d off light. I have not even put
25,000 miles on it since I bought it. It has almost 178,000 miles on it. The tranny was
slipping a couple of months ago and I took it to the shop while I still had extended
warranty on it. They said the tranny checked good. Evidentally they were wrong. It revs
up to between 3k to 4k rpm before it shifts out of 1st. Seems like it is missing 2nd. any
help would be great.
Blinking O/D light means a there is a tranmission fault code that was tripped and or it is overheating. Since you have transmission issues, the code will be able to pinpoint the area of failure. But based on your information and 178K miles on it, your probably looking at rebuilding or replacing the trans. Have it diagnosed by a reputable mechanic or trans expert.
