I"m a Ford Guy and also need some aid with young car. 2000 Cougar v6 2.5 ns think. Car Jerks so badly the it feels choose the transmission is jerking in and also out that hi and also low gears... Unbelievable .. Had actually the system tested and also it come up trs and just purchase one... Not certain the proper steps to install... Any help would be most appreciated.

From the Ford hands-on this is the installation procedure. Taking it out is simply removing the bolts and then the sensor. The installation and also tool. If you eliminate it in the neutral position, girlfriend won"t have to problem about setup it to neutral prior to installing it.
thanks for the info.... Unclear around the distinct tool and also what is the manual valve detent bar assembly exactly ??? can"t make sense of the picture... Sorry not the most mechanically inclined.

Just make sure the bar is in neutral. That"s every you must do and I don"t know about your sensor, if it"s currently in neutral or not. That"s what the tool is for.
So where precisely is the Transismission range sensor (TRS) located. I have a "97 V6 Contour, how do I accessibility it come replace.OK, I found the sensor under the coolant hoses, near the left next of the battery (if standing in prior of your vehicle looking at the engine). The component look an extremely different native what i have. Original looks steel - new one is plastic; small different form too. I double checked the component number (SW6274 - in Canada) with Ford, they say I might need a wire adapter to associated it. Has actually anyone used this component and got it to work, without a wire adapter - perform I require it ? I prefer to carry out this asap. Please help. Dale

That would certainly be wonderful, if I can get my hands in there. The connector is hidden under the rad hoses (2.5 V6 engine - no room in ~ all). Can not job-related on it, was raining all day yesterday. Ns guessing I have actually to drainpipe the rad before I take it the hoses apart simply to acquire at the Transmission variety Sensor, yet the connector watch the same.

Good news, to be able to change the defective TRS on my car. The new part (plastic) connects and also works without any type of needed adjustments (other connectors), simply plugs in. Auto is working great now. Took me around 4 hrs to do, disconnecting the rad hoses to get my hands in over there to remove the 2 bolts. Really, was no that tough to do, just take girlfriend time, and also remember how to put everything earlier together too..
