Getting the codes read is really the only way to see why it's unhappy.
Usually auto tranny issues are a blinking OD light.

flashing CEL means STOP DRIVING NOW, 02s don't have flashout codes like older cars.. flashing means its a type A misfire, and means either serious engine damage or serious emissions damage can result from continuing to drive it like that

and I'd bet you'd have multiple misfire codes as well as type A misfire codes for specific cylinders..
