2001 ford windstar o/d light flashing

i got a 01 windstar that after being on the highway for about 20 to 30 mins drops out of o/d then the o/d off light starts flashing and i can feel it going in and out of o/d. so i stopped and shut the van off checked the fluid and everything seemed so started the van back up and the light wasnt flashing then about another 10 mins of driving the highway it did it again and i noticed that after the light starts flashing it shifts really hard

No it has a code stored if OD light was flashing. My guess is going to be Torque converter clutch slipping. Will need codes to verify tho. Maybe autozone scanner not capable.

They'll charge you. The last I knew, the scanner that Autozone use is just engine management. Might want to do a call around and see if anyone loans a scanner that will read transmission codes.
