Sure, the blinking O/D light is telling you there is a fault with the transmission and there is a stored code. A mechanic or trans shop has the equipment to read the code. But just to prepare you for the news, 9 out of 10 times your probably looking at a transmission repair bill, and most probably a rebuild at that. Good Luck!
