Check the transmission fluid level but it sounds like the transmission is failing, get a Ford shop or transmission specialist to check it out before it fails all together.

with the overdrive light blinking, it goes into a default mode. that is done by the computer. it will not last long at all.

As Pat said, you have internal issues that need attention. dont wait to long or it will fail completely.
