Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello,first thing to do besides checking transmission fluid level and condition to make sure it isnt low or burnt is to have the check engine light checked, diagnostic codes pulled to see if it is anything related to your concern. low fluid level in the trans can cause a stall or slip among many other things. Most auto parts stores can pull codes for free but might not be able to get all information or codes stored based onthe type of scan tool they are using.
Yes with the od lamp flashing it is indicating a transmission fault and setting a diagnostic trouble code, so need to have trouble codes pulled to see what code(s) are stored to know what direction to take towards the repairs
