I have had the mass airfow sensor replaced, caused problems until my mechanic figured our broke things in transmission as it would all of a sudden run/shift poorly. After he had replaced computer/ rebuilt the transmission etc and tuned it up it ran great. The OD light came on and, it didn't lose overdrive but it sure shifts funny when its on. He came to drive it and have it hooked up to a computer but when he turned it on the light stayed out and the computer doesn't store info. So it sat for a while and when I went to drive it it was great but 80 miles into me driving it the light once again comes on and at times if you step on it it will shift really hard. It still has overdrive but I don't want to break anything again. My mechanic transmission specialist is scratching his head. He has told me so many things influence the running of the transmission in this car. I am 2 a total of $3000 in repairs and at this point I can't sell or trade it so I would like to figure out so I can drive another 50000+ to get my money ot of the car. Thanks Zane

Mazda recommended adding an external cooler in a tsb on that trans. Also the plastic plug connector should be checked and cleaned.

When the OD light starts blinking, that would indicate a fault in the transmission control system and it can cause shifting irregularities. Trouble codes should be present though it might take a while for it to come back after clearing the codes.

What was the trouble code retrieved? Get a scan done again and let me know the present trouble code. There should be one snce the OD light had started blinking after clearing the codes.
