RE: 2001 Expedton 5.4 shifter/park/start problems
Does the shifter seam exceptionally 'range sloppy' or do youhave to 'hunt' for selected positions?
A real common problem with thesecolumns is a set oftorx screws (2) that work loose and backout over time.. They attach the selector leverscolumn tube to the lower column lever.. To check,, look straight up from about the drivers carpet foot plate area at the lower most portion of the maincolumn body right about where the steering shaft comes out.. You'll see the shifter cable extending over and attaches to a 'L' shaped selector arm.. The arm attachment may be loose, and most times you can see that the screws have backed out.. If so,, tighten them both back in, then completely remove one ata timeand use thread locker and re-install and tighten..Repeat on the opposite screw, then check them both for a final tight..
