confused PLEASE HELP!!!! Problems with a 95 Explorer Tranny

I want to see if anyone can help me please.....

We have a 95 Ford Explorer 4wd xlt with about 91k on it. Back in June 2004 we had about 85k miles on it and our O/D light began flashing. We took it into a Transmission place and they told us we needed to do an Overhaul due to leakage and the 3rd gear not working. I dont know much about cars, so we decided to go ahead and get it done. About 3 months later in Sept 2004 after about a 300mile trip the o/d light began flashing again and now we could hear a clunk noise when we would stop...we took it back and the mechanic told us it was an error on the computer and upon clearing the code it didn't do it anymore. Now Feb 2005 we have the same problem, this time the mechanic decided to check more into it and said it was probably the solenoid. They replaced it but it still didn't correct the error on the computer reading...so they took the tranny apart and can't find anything wrong with it.

The shop keeps telling us that when they run the computer a code indicating a problem with the EGR keeps popping up. He said this could be causing the Transmission sensor to "trip" out and cause errors, therefor causing these symptoms in the transmission. Does that sound right? If it was something with the EGR wouldn't the Engine Light come on???

If in fact this is something that can be affecting the tranny any idea how much it can cost to get it fixed???

We are really frustrated right now any help or feedback we get would be greatly appreciated....we are starting to doubt the shop (which specializes in Transmissions)....

Thanks in advance.

I have heard that the Nuetral Starter Switch (Safety Switch) is a common part that becomes faulty and causes weird problems.

Have a look here http://www.atraonline.com.au/ and contact one of these trans guys.
