Having problems with your 1999 Ford Windstar ?
We were driving down the freeway when the ODT light started flashing on our 2000 Ford Windstar. WE pulled over, and it was gushing transmission fluid. Well, we got more fluid, and added it, and the ODT light went off, and we drove it home, and it didn't leak. Can this van be trusted to drive again?
I would have the vehicle scanned to find out why the od light was flashing. When the light flashes there will be a diagnostic code stored in the engine computer. It sounds like the transmission overheated for some reason and vented the fluid. By the time you added fluid the transmission and started driving the transmission cooled down and quit leaking.
I would not drive this vehicle a foot more. you need to take it to a service specialist. and have them check the transmission to make sure your seals did not get damaged and that you did not overfill it before this happened.
