Flashing O/D light means the system detected a problem with the transmission. Either it is overheating or there is an internal issue. Have a local transmission shop diagnose your issue for a free quote. Since you have an '97 and probably over 150K miles, be prepared to be told you need a rebuild. That will cost you around $1500- $2000.
