    ok when i drive my 97 xlt about once every 2 days the o/d light will start blinking and it will shift kinda hard. it only does it when the light is blinking though. i just had a 20q flush and it diddnt change it. but i know the tranny has really low pressure. any ideas on what could be wrong? or what i can do to raise the pressure in the tranny?

    Look into the EPC solenoid as the cause. No Trannie removal to do that.

    There are a lot of threads on the EPC solenoid, testing etc... if you haven't yet, try doing a search using the words "EPC SOLENOID" and I think you'll find them, if you still have questions let me know.


    Here is a good start, with helpful pictures.
