Hello, with the od light flashing there is a diagnostic trouble code stored indicating a fault with the trans. With that many miles on the transmission id suspect a major failure in this CD4E model. So your best bet would be to find out what codes are stored and evaluate if it will be a minor or major repair. These transmissions have lots of issues from the 2/4 band breaking, torque convertor failure, oil pump drive shaft breaking to name a few. If you are looking at a big repair id recommend going with a new trans with a 3 year unlimited mile warranty thru Ford or Jasper transmissions
