Shift Position Sensor?

Ok, so my cars been acting weird lately.

Basically when I go to put it in D from park it seems to go into neutral, sometimes it goes in, sometimes it will catch when I give it some gas.

When I put the car in 1, its 100% fine, same with 2, 100% fine, holds the right gear and does what it should, no slippage.

Does this sound like the shift position sensor has gone bad?

I have had intermittent issues with it wanting to go from 3rd to 4th back to 4th and so on randomly as well.

Its a built 4r70w, never had an issue with it otherwise.

ive had this issue before. deff the sensor. they call it a neutral saftey switch.

heres a part number from standard motor products. NS95.

when replacing make sure you line it up right otherwise reverse lights wont work. happened to me once.. got a ticket for it. quite easy to do. just make sure the car is cold since its right next to the exhaust.

no problem. it is kinda common. the sensor is so close to the exhaust it gets hot and malfunctions.

Yea, I just switched to a turbo setup and I have a single pipe that runs right by it, maybe that was enough to knock it out completely lol.

Its weird that it will go into 1st and then neutral if I give it too much gas though.


Anyways, Napa wanted like 75 bucks for some no name brand to I called ford and they wanted 85 bucks...

Guess im going with ford.

Well, turns out the sensor was just out of alignment....fixed the alignment and tightened it up and all seems well.
