Question 2000 Ranger Transmission Problems

Ok it just might be the transmission is on its last leg but I need help.

As of Sunday the Overdrive light is flashing periodically. Not every time but I would say about 50% of the time.

And now I noticed that its not catching gears as easy as it used to now the motor revs to about 3000 RPM's and barely catches from 1st to 2nd. If I let off the gas it will catch. Between all gears its seems to be doing the same thing.

Are the 2 problems related? Any help wpuld be appreciated. Will trans cleaner/treatment help Here are the vitals on the truck

Is the fluid level OK? How does the fluid look? Has it been flushed regularly?

The flashing OD indicates the PCM my have a code, some parts store will pull the codes for free.

just did a 14 point oil change (and radiator flush) fluid level is clean and a lil over full thats why I dont wanna put the cleaner in there yet til that goes down. I might have em flush it this w/e. 180,000 is pretty good though even if it does go out. but I want it to go MORE MORE MORE I wanna go to 1,000,000 miles darn it. I will go back to Auto Zone and have em read it. I wasnt sure if it would come up with anything since its not a check engine light problem.

if you are talking about the codes, you can have codes with or without a CEL.
