'96 Ranger 4wd
Hi everybody, this is my first post to this site so bear w/ me. I have a '96 arnger 4wd with a 4r55e trans thats giving me fits, the truck has a buttload of miles on (226,000+) but still runs great due to lots of h-way miles and diligent maintenance. Anyway the trans has started to give the flashing O/D light and the p0741 code, it doesn't do this all the time though. I can drive it all day long on the h-way no problem, then if I get onto city streets it might act up, might not. Most of the time it does this has been on surface streets. some other symptoms along with this are a harsh 1-2 upshift and downshift. problem goes away after I let truck sit for a few hours and may not reappear for a week or two. Trans has received regular maintenance since I bought it in 1998 w/ 16k on it. Any help or directions to head in with this issue would be greatly appreciated, sorry for the long post, THANKS
