Hey all -
Well, here it goes... the wife calls me yesterday and tells me that the OD light is blinking and the check engine light is on in my Super duty. - Oh great. So she said the OD light stopped blinking shortly after, but the check engine light stayed on.
I had her go to an auto zone, but by then the light had gone out and the person there said that there were no codes to be found.
The trans shifts fine, no slip that I can tell, no real delay going into fwd or reverse... Not sure what to make of this. I talked to a trans shop and he said that it's not really normal to get check engine and flashing OD at the same time, is that true? He said it could have been a 'glitch' that caused it. Fluid level is normal, nice and pink with no stink (just how I like it..
) - I need to change it, it's about 30,000 miles old but I don't believe that has anything to do with it.
I have been hauling a yard of top soil around all week, but I don't even know if it's related. It's not like it's THAT much weight, and I was using the tow tune from PHP while 'loaded down'.
So, do I worry or what? I am looking into a ford reman HD trans, a BTS or a JW... I just hate the idea of 4-5k for a transmission. Tried to call JW and got busy signal for a long time... ?
