    Is the OD light flashing on and off? If so it doesn't mean that the trans is shifting in and out of OD. The computer flashes the OD light when there is a trans problem. You need to get the code pulled, just remember that not all OBD2 code readers can read manufacture pacific DTC trans codes. The code gives a clue to what is wrong.

    There is a little more to it than just dropping in a 4.6. You will need the computer for the 4.6 and all the engine and trans wireing, along with a 4.6 trans.
