showing the 02 some love.

after 10 years of ownership and 195,000 miles on the clock, the 02 is finally getting some much needed love to gt it ready for the up coming snow plow season. .

i parked it back in January after buying the 2014, and started going over it, replacing little things. like parking brake cable that broke last fall, replacing the cab corners that were starting to show rot, then undercoat the lower 6 inches of the doors and cab corners plus the full underside of the cab.
new positive battery cable because the old one was showing signs of corrosion, and a new starter to replace the original which was dragging. fixed a few wires that were chaffing under the dash, pulled the windshield to repair the leaks that would drip on the fuse box and passenger side kick panel wires shorting out the electrical system and kill the batteries in 3 days, and adjust the shift cable after the shift tube broke last year and i threw it together.
well, the shifter has been getting progressively harder the past two years. i finally got under it yesterday and found it is in the trans. so it is going to the trans shop to see what is up. hopefully it is a simple repair and not a total rebuild.

It is the little things that make the biggest difference at times. Knocking out small projects like this can make a huge difference in how much you like to drive the truck or not. Hopefully the trans issue is not a big deal.

The lovin' sounds nice. My cab corners are going to need some love soon too. Did you cut the old ones out or just tack new ones over top of them?

the old girl has been rode hard and put away wet almost every day for the past 9 years before it was parked when i bought the 14 for a daily driver. the 02 has been relegated to back up truck/snow plow rig, just like the 88 is.
Mark Kovalski feels it is a seized trans range selector. he said he has seen this quite often.
tomorrow i am going to pull the TPS off the trans and see if it moves easy.

Well good luck, but I'll put $5 on Mark on this one. (or actually any transmission question that comes up for that matter).

I'd guess it's the range selector too. Common problem

How does that sensor come off? I know that there are two small bolts that hold it but how do you get it off the shaft?

two bolts hold the switch to the trans, nut holds the shift arm to the shaft.
pull the shift arm, then pull the switch

What??!! Tom is actually working on his truck? Does not moderating take up all of your time?

Like Sous has stated though, those little projects sure do make for liking the truck that much more. Usually, not always, but when I start hankering for something different, it is because mine needs some TLC. Good to hear from you!

the 4R100 TRS is a little different than the EE4OD.
the switch slides on the shift shaft and is held to the trans by two 8MM bolts.
i have not gotten it off yet. i have been soaking it with PB Blaster. tomorrow i think i am going to take a cutoff tool to it and then sand the shaft down real good.

I ask because the one I have out in the garage looks like it has some sort of bolt in the middle holding it onto the shaft in addition to those two 8mm bolts that go through the body of the sensor switch. I don't want to break anything but would like to know how to get it off.

all the videos i have seen show the E4OD style that has the two 8MM bolts, and a bolt holding the shift arm on the trans shift shaft with the switch under the shift arm. on that style you need to remove the two 8MM bolts, and the nut, then pop the shift arm off the shaft to get the switch off.

on my 02 and the 04 2 wheel drive trans, the switch is on the outside of the shift arm on the shaft. i looked for a snap ring, but do not see anything holding it on to the shaft.

took 4 hours today, but finally got the old switch off the trans and new one on. the shifter now moves full range with one finger.
new starter and positive cable is in too, and the truck starts so fast i have to cut back on the remote start timer.

only thing left to do is get the windshield cut out and repair the leak, then new windshield put in.

sure do, except for all the body pain from getting twisted like a pretzel under the truck.
we better get a lot of snow this year, or i am going to burn the biatch for causing this much pain.
