My transmission was under water during Super Storm Sandy. I let everything dry out, I cleaned the two electrical connectors, did a whole transmission flush and installed a 6.0 transmission cooler. Ever since then when I start my truck my overdrive light blinks until I start to drive, then it goes away. Also my transmission hits 180 degrees rather quickly. And once it hits 160 degrees it starts to slip at high RPM's, when I get around 2200 RPM's they shoot up and I loose all acceleration. Once I let off the gas it shifts. My fluid is still red but smells a little burnt. Could it be a bad torque converted or is my transmission toast? And did I do something I shouldn't have? There was quite a bit of salt water that came out of the transmission. Thanks for any input.

I would plan on getting it rebuilt. Odds are something is corroded or the clutches are swelling/comming apart and some seals are toast. You could pull the codes to see what the blinking OD light is trying to tell you but I would still plan on a rebuild reguardless.
