Explorer: My 98 Explorer has had the O/D light flashing off

Customer Question

My 98 Explorer has had the O/D light flashing off and on - took it to the shop - they said the torque converter clutch is not functioning and there is a transmission problem on the horizon - $3800 to fix the problem - the car has 169,000 miles - don't know if this is worth putting that kind of money into it. Thanks

Thank you for using just answer I will help you with your question.Sometimes the problem is a bad transmission valve body gasket.It causes a loss in pressure and causes transmission solenoid codes.It can be replaced by removing the transmission pan and then the valve body.
