When was the last time you had the transmission filter and fluid changed? Sounds like the filter is clogged.

SOURCE: f350 automatic transmission

Since you have the same 4R100 as the 7.3L I recommend checking the resistance of the solenoid connectors, it is like sonic said at the rear passenger side and it will be hiding under some flexible heat shielding (it is next to the exhaust pipe afterall..). Specifically, take the resistance (ohms) from pins 1 to 4 doesn't matter which is black or red. It should be 10-20 ohms. You also might have to put a jack under the transfer case, unbolt, drop the support beam and let the whole drivetrain come down a bit for decent access. These pins should be labeled but pin 1 is in the row away from the tab and is the rear-most pin. Replacing the solenoid body is $200 and a pan drop. Grab a few gallons of Mercon!

SOURCE: overdrive light on shifter is flashing and

There is another recall on the cruise control. The first added a fuse. This new recall is about wiring and lighting problems caused by the cruise. Everything from not shifting out of Park to no brake lights to false dash indicators. Best to contact the dealer, if it is a recall its free.

OVERDRIVE is fine in most driving. if you tow a trailler or pulling long hills take out of overdrive. otherwise the vehicle will handle when to shift.

Wheres the overdrive unit and how do i test it?


I'm guessing automatic trans. look at the end of the shifter handle there should be a button on the end . if you press it a yellow light should come on saying OD OFF . and the engine rpm should increase when driving, meaning the trans came out of OD. press it again and trans will go back into OD and light goes out.
hope this helps.

1994 F350 transmission intermittent problem


I had the same problem in my 96 f-350. The transmission has slipped recording a slip code in the transmission. You can pull the codes and get it. I shifts into a safe mode that increases the pressure inside your transmission as part od a fail safe. Plain and simple, you have to have the tranny rebuilt.

Overdrive transmission


O/D light flashing is computer indicating an issue with the transmission -no surprise. Make sure the transmission fluid is still good (dosn't smell burnt, right level). Slipping could be the TCC (torque Converter clutch) - not a cheap part - but would only really slip in 4th gear (above 40 mph). Slipping before that could be numerous things in the trans (low fluid pressure, torque converter issues).
I would be tempted to replace the fluid anyhow, but there is a chance an expensive issue is starting to arise - and replacing the fluid on a failing transmission could cause it to fail 100% (or can fix it nearly 100%). These can be touchy transmissions, too much DIY without the right diagnostic tools can be bad. Not what you wanted to hear, and not an expert, but have had some expertise with these.hope that helps.
