Just adding another complaint with my mountaineer. On top of the O/D light flashing, I also have the timing chain rattle at 2500 RPM. Not sure if this is a must to fix or not. I just know the result if the chain goes. It will end up in the junk yard, since its not worth the $4000 engine repair. Most are saying a $1500 repair for the chain (worth only $65)

Good luck Ford owners, you will need it!
