The "Bird Cage" Is really a Radiator..
You should check Coolant Levels.

coolant level, if its full..sometimes the sensor on the overflow tank is broken or malfunctioning and that could also cause it.

Yeah, check the coolant level, add some if ya need it. And bleed the system just for the hell of it, it can't hurt, ya might have some air in there. If your O/D light is flashing, check for transmission codes and see what ya come up with and let us know. http://www.lexls.com/tutorials/intro/codereading.html
Has your tranny been acting different lately?
