I just recently bought another 97 tbird. The car has 79k on it but had a jmoded trans installed years ago. I took it down the road last night and it shifted through all the gears good(shifts little slower than expected with the jmod?) torque converter locked up in OD(at a pretty low rpm). On my way back I booted it, seemed to hang shift on 2-3 shift then neutralled out with a flashing od light. Took it home turned it off then took it for a normal drive again, had all gears and the converter locked up the same in OD as it did the first time?? Time for a rebuild or a converter?

fluid looks brand new with no smell to it at all.

Go get the code(s) read first. The PCM observed a problem and recorded that observation, so start there before taking guesses and potentially putting money where it may not need to go.

Given that, it's probably electrical related.

Everytime I've seen the blinking o/d light I've found the trans wiring harness to have bad insulation near the connectors.
