Your welcome and yea, the all important solenoid pack, I see I left that out of my short list!

Manual Lever Position Sensor. It is a sensor on the driver side of the transmission. That is what tells the PCM what "gear" the transmission selector is in.

bpgraham is starting off with a positive reputation.
Do you know which wires hook together on the O2 Sensor? I have a 96 F350 with the 5.8l and the wires were ripped off at the plug. I have 4 wires coming from the Sensor. A black and 2 white and another wire that I'm cleaning to figure out the color. The wires where the plug was are Orange, Gray/light Blue, Black, Purple/Orange. Any help will be appreciated!!

If the fourth wire is gray then you may find this helpful:

All Bosch 4-wire sensors have a black wire for the signal, a gray wire for ground and 2 white wires for the heater.

Reference this diagram for the functions of each wire at the connector:

So, make sure I have this correct... the Orange and Gray/Light Blue wires go to the heater (White) wires. Black in the harness to Gray on sensor and Purple/Orange wire in the harness to Black on the Sensor.......

Orange= O2 Signal = Black wire on O2 sensor
Gray/Light Blue= O2 Signal Return/Ground = Gray wire on O2 sensor

Purple/Orange= O2 Heater supply Voltage = White wire on O2 sensor
Black= O2 Heater Ground = White wire on O2 sensor
