Will that also fix my OD flashing? The trans slips when put in reverse then you rev it up a little and it kicks in and goes

it will probably fix it. OD light means theres a transmission fault. it could be a hundred different things. Its like asking "My CEL is on. Why?"

Try the shift kit, and if that does not correct the problem, you might be looking into a rebuild. Start cheap.

Also, check your fluid level if you havent already.

P.S. Dont add another post to add more information if no one else has responded, just edit the post and add in the additional details.
