Customer Question
About 100 miles after professional...
About 100 miles after professional oil change, front wheel bearings R & R, wheel balance and alignment, my E150 (3 speed automatic w/electric OD) started slipping and felt like it was in neutral at about 65 MPH. I slowed down and was able to drive to work at about 45 MPH in 2nd with no problem. I can put it in drive and turn off to OD, and drive, but it does';t seem to shift into drive. Also, the OD "Off" light on the shifter is now blinking.

the o/d light flashing is telling you that you have transmission faults. you need to have the vehicles transmission control module scanned for fault codes. you might also want to check the transmissions fluid level, color, and smell.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The fluid level, color and smell are fine. Can the transmission control module be scanned without transmission removal?
Ford Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 6 months ago

absolutely. you scan it just like you would for the engine codes. but you need a scan tool capable of communicating with the transmission

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
