I bought a 1995 Ford Explorer with 110000. Had it checked out by a mechanic before buying. 2 weeks after buying it, the o/d light began flashing on the dash indicating a problem with the transmission. Took it to a transmission shop for repair. They replaced some pistons and gaskets in the transmission and the flashing light was off when I picked the vehicle up. By the time I got home (about 50 miles), the light was flashing again. Took it back to the shop, they replaced the computer. Same thing--by the time I got it home, the light was flashing again. Took it back to the shop-- the transmission was practically rebuilt (according to them). This time the light remained off for about 1000 miles and the transmission performed smoothly. Got great gas mileage. Then the o/d light came back on and the transmission shifts roughly and the gas mileage has tanked (pardon the pun). The transmission shop says there is nothing wrong with the transmission. Their work is still under their warranty that is why I have stuck with them rather than going to another shop.
Anyone have a similar experience with a Explorer Trans and what did you do to fix it?
