    Opening the 4WD Shift Motor Position Sensor

    I agree that it could be kaput, I can't really determine that until get it open. Note that when I state "sealed" I mean no screws or clips to open it - it is by no means actually sealed, as I was able to get contact cleaner sprayed inside. I guess, since that seam area is inside the shift motor...

    Opening the 4WD Shift Motor Position Sensor

    2001, gen 1. Does anybody know how to open the 4WD shift motor position sensor? This one is supposedly a third generation, sealed position sensor. As shown in the first image, it does come apart, but when I tried, the outer case started cracking at the "seam" (blue arrow area).

    The wiring diagrams have GOT to be better than the crazy back and forth of the CD. Although, screen captures of diagrams are nice. I have PayPal!

    Gen1 Restore

    I can drop a few things to check. IAC valve dirty. Free and easy to clean. I use electronics cleaner and cotton swabs ("Q-Tip") to clean and follow with a drop or two of light oil where the shaft enters the solenoid. I clean it at about 30,000 mile intervals (when I change the fuel filter)...

    Thank you, swshawaii. I've not had problems with my Trac lately, so haven't been as active. I think I'll take the plunge and get the latch assembly to reduce the probability of having to deal with this again. P.S. Anybody know how to update profilesto get the cool "badges" ("V6 Engine", etc.)...
