The OD light blinking means you have a driveline code. Get the code read and you will have your problem. If the VSS is bad the speedo will usually jump. You could also pull the senor and clean it, this works sometimes, but don't start buying any parts until the codes are read.

my truck does the same thing some times, like i will start it and the overdrive light starts flashing and it is kinda gutless but when i pull over and kill it then restart this usually fixes it....also when i get into the throttle very much a light on my dash comes on in the shape of an engine.... any idea why???

yea, the od light is the "check engine light" for the trans, and most code readers will read a code for the trans. like nshornet said, get the code read...could be just that the trans slipped....the torque converter is notorious in the e4od for going bad...
