SOURCE: 2001 ford expedition spark plug location

That's because they are hidden quite well. If you look at the engine, you'll see yellow plastic prongs (?) that look like spark plugs, but hook up to the silver tubing.  That's the fuel injectors.  BUT, right behind the yellow plugs, are black ones.  The black one is the connector to the spark plug.  The plug itself sits about 4 inches down into the block of the engine.  They are a real pain, and from what I can tell, you only have decent access to the first 2-4 of them, then they get too far back and start going under the dash (you'll see what I mean when you get there).

SOURCE: shift cable linkage on 92 ford e-150 van.

can you drop your steering wheel it should be 2 bolts and from there you should be able to see where the cable connects to the back of the shift linkage , should be held on with a 10 mm bolt or torx screw

SOURCE: 1982 rabbit shift linkage

There is a plastic ball that is in the shift linkage that also wears and is usually not included in the shift linkage bushing kit. It is attached to a metal piece and is bolted to the shift linkage. This is generally the problem if you already replaced the bushings.

Sometimes the linkage is out of adjustment but I would make sure that the ball is not worn first. They generally cost $5.00 - $8.00 or so.

If you need to adjust the linkage you can try the following, but if the bushings or the ball is worn adjustment will not do any good.

There is an adjustment on the shift rod that goes from the shifter to the transmission. It is a rod slipped into a tube with a locking collar or clamp.

The way that I do this is to make sure that your vehicle is in 1st gear and then loosen the bolt on the clamp.

Make sure that the clamp is loose enough so that the shaft can slip in the tube. Put the shifter in the 1st gear position and then tighten the clamp.

You may need to fiddle with this a little to get it in just the right spot.

This is much easier if you have an assistant.

SOURCE: My 2000 Ford Expedition XLT will not go into P,R,N,D,2 and 1..

You know,i had kind of the same problem with my 2000 f150,just incase you didnt check this,look under the dash at the bottom of the steering column,there is a bracket that bolts on with 2 torque bolts at ( t-25 or t-30) the shift cable connects to that bracket and when it loosens up it wont go into park or if loose enough it may not shift to reverse either.An easy way to tell if its loose is if the shift lever feels loose or real easy to move.Also at the transmission where the shift cable connects there is a plastic holder with groves on it for adjustment,dont try adjusting it but inspect it if its loose or broken,if you try adjusting it then its tough to get it back where it needs to be for all the gears to work with the shift indicator tab,about it not starting,that may have to do with the safety neutral switch on the transmission,but double check the linkage to make sure its really tight before worrying about that switch,im not always on line these days but i will help more when i can.Good luck

Testimonial: "nov2771 advised with the 2 torque bolts at (t-25 or t-30) was right on the money. The bolts were loose...However, upon further investing I noticed that on the top of the column there is a notch that goes into a slot right before the two (2) torque bolts...this gear is what i believe prevents the car from going into the parking and prevents the key from being removed at the ignition. The shift lever moves freely...but does not move the cable and gears at the transmission.... "

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Expedition - starts, won't shift out of park, windows n

Check the #15 fuse in fusebox behind marked panel on left lower dash just below and left of steering column. This is only a 5 amp fuse but it controls a lot. This fixed our 2001 Expedition. 25 cents.

My 98 ford expedition wont shift into park. I got under the dash and seen that a black tube is busted on the gear shift linkage how can I fix this?


Personally I would go to junk yard and get that part you described. That part is rather easy to get to and replace. Good luck

Why won't my 2001 Ford Expedition shift into park?


If you Expedition is anything like my '99 Ranger, you have to have your foot on the brake to get it into "PARK". If you are doing that, then you have a transmission shift linkage adjustment problem that can happen if you have had your transmission removed or replaced, in which case I would have the shop that did the work adjust that linkage...no charge.

Reverse not working


It sounds like a gear shift alignment switch/linkage...Try your mechanic before a transmission shop. Should be less costly, and only address the alignment of the selector.

My 1999 expedition, will not respond to any gear shift postion. Any position is like it's still in park.


could be the shifting linkage. best bet would be to take it to somewhere like auto zone so they could possibly put it on a scope and find the actual problem.

2001 ford expedition stuck in park the gear shift would not come out of park


brake-sahift interlock solenoid not working. check fuse first. when key is on and brake is pressed, it either activates or deactivates the solenoid so you can shift out of park. safety thing.
chrck owner manual for a mechanical overide process. maybe there is one.

Sometimes when I put the gear shift in park the vehicle will roll making a clicking noise, then i put it back in park and it holds o.k.???can you help me by identifying the problem???


The noise is the tooth engaging your parking dog in the trans. think of a big gear with square teeth and a plunger that fits into the valley of the gear. not always does the plunger hit the valley so when you roll a little it comes off the high point and settles where it belongs

Gear Shift not shifting properly


Depending on whether it is a column shift or floor, you have to get the linkage loose enough to get the car in neutral, move the selector back to the proper setting, and tighten everything up.

If the car is not setting on a hill or incline, you should be able to move the shift levers by hand when you've loosened the linkage and move it until it is in neutral. Put on jack stands and chock the wheels that are on the ground.
