When scanned codes p0733 and p0113 came up on my 2004 forester now when it gets warm the transmission won`t shift until it cools back down

code p 0733 refers to gear 3--incorrect ratio===causes ---wiring---TR sensor /switch---shift solenoids---transmission mechanical fault
most likely a solenoid problem that is failing when it is hot
code p 0113 refers to intake air temp(AT) sensor---circuit malfunction====causes ---wiring open circuit / short to ground ---wiring short to ground ---ground wire defective --IAT sensor ---ECM

take it to an accredited auto transmission specialist shop for an exact diagnosis of the fault
I seriously doubt that you have a transmission box mechanical fault so get a second opinion if a replacement transmission is suggested

Where is the neutral safety switch located on 1998 ford crown victoria

On 1992 and later models, the neutral safety switch is incorporated into the Manual Lever Position or Transmission Range MLP/TR sensor.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely on jackstands.
  3. Place the transmission in Neutral.
  4. Remove and discard the manual control lever nut, then remove the lever from the transmission.
  5. Detach the TR sensor electrical harness connector, remove the TR sensor retaining bolts, then pull the TR sensor off of the transmission case.
To install:
  1. Position the TR sensor against the transmission case and loosely install the 2 retaining screws.
  2. Attach the TR sensor electrical harness connector.
  3. Use an alignment tool, such as the TR Sensor Alignment Tool T93P-70010-A, to align the TR sensor slots.
  4. Tighten the TR sensor bolts to 80-100 inch lbs. (9-11 Nm).
  5. Position the manual control lever onto the TR sensor, then install the new lever nut to 22-26 ft. lbs. (30-35 Nm).
  6. Lower the vehicle.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.

Where is the neutral safty swith on a 2006 ford focus

There isnt a neutral safety switch. There is a manual lever position sensor(MLP). It combines all the fuctions of backup lights, neutral safety, and informing the PCM what gear you have selected into one unit. Follow the shift cable out to the transmission, and at the end, Follow the shift cable out to the transmission, and at the end, you will find the MLP.

1993 olds achieva-gears won't shift-what sensors on transmission

Had this problem when I rebuilt my engine. Turns out, that I had plugged back in a sensor that was previously unplugged. There is a known manufacturer's defect on some Achievas where a sensor on the transmission was mounted upside-down. Symptoms caused by this are primarily the car staying in gear (and thus stalling) when stopped, and failing to downshift while slowing down. Just unplug this pesky sensor, located roughly underneath and to the battery side of the throttle body. Be careful, though, because I don't know if running long term in this configuration will lead to transmission damage (although my transmission doesn't show any signs of troubles now that the thing is disconnected.)

Where and what is a tr/mlp sensor for transmission?

It mounts on driver's side of transmission where linkage is.

Another concern is did water get into the trans.? If so then that could be a problem. The glue that is used to bond the clutches to the plates in the tranny is water soluable,in other words it will cause them to unbond. The only fix for that is replacement of the clutches.
