Looking at buying 96 cclbE4OD/ OD light blinking though

Like it says......whats up with the blinking light, can it be a series of things, major, minor? The guy thats selling it says it doesnt blink all the time but when it blinks the truck shifts really hard. Sorry guys, i tried the search feature but im using a smart phone and it wont let me.

There should be a code stored. If its torque converter/clutch slip code, it is probaply ready for rebuild. The o.d. light flashing usually never ends on a good note.

A typical OBD code reader may not be able to read the code, though. Have it scanned on a real monitor.

Newest project: 1995 F350 CC/DRW 2WD E4OD. 3" DP, 4" Diamond Eye system. But I'm still fixin' the broken stuff......

The OD light blinks to indicate there is a transmission code. The reason it shifts hard when the light is on is because the transmission goes into limp mode which gives it full line pressure. It could be any number of issues within the transmission. You need to scan it with a high end scanner in order to find out what the code is.

if you buy the truck, take the cost of a new tranny into account when you make your offer, because it will likely need one very soon.

Check the fluid level. Mine was low on fluid when I bought it. It had the rear seal replaced and the fluid level wasn't correct. Solved my problem.

Bargaining room! It could be a simple fix but i would treat it as a broken trans and the price should reflect that.

Re: Looking at buying 96 cclbE4OD/ OD light blinking though

Update: So after I talked to the guy about the truck some more, he said he has been driving the truck around for about a year like that. He said it doesnt do it very often. I know what you guys are gonna say "put a scanner on it".......I plan on doing it, just havent gotten around to it yet. Ive been pondering the blinking light tho and it makes me wonder if it isnt an electrical issue if hes been running around in it for that long and the tranny hasnt gone out. Either way i'll definatly use the blinking light as leverage when we start wheeling and dealing!

It could be setting a code for several different reasons. If the seller is actually being honest and it has done it for a year then it is possible that it is an electrical issue or something else simple but I wouldn't bet on it.
