Rangers o/d off light was flashing took it to dealership said problem with OD band requiring overhaul. Check engine light has been on and code P0761 (shift solenoid C) was pulled. Dealership said this was probably just because of the OD band problem. The thing that confuses me is that the only time the transmission bucks is when the O/D off light flashes, otherwise everything runs fine.

What I am wondering is if shift solenoid is the real problem and if this can be replaced without a complete overhaul? Ranger has 103000 miles not even worth enough to get an overhaul.

P0761 code indicate transmission mechanical failure or electrical malfunction
probable cause are :

internal tranny damage
shift solenoid damage
shifter solenoid circuit damage
faulty powertrain control module PCM

and this is why I think they said u need a rebuilt
try to get another opinion take it to a tranny shop let then scan it and check it for you
good luck
