My gear shifts way to the right how would i fix that.

Is your truck an automatic? If your talking your shifter on your column, there is a lil, I would call it a wheel behind your dash up near where your shifter goes in. If you look up behind there, there will be a little wire that runs from behind your dash and at some point through a plastic piece with a wheel/knob in it. If your turn that knob it will change where your shifter reads depending on the direction you turn it. Hope that helps you out

No its not. Drain the system a bit, remove the housing, remove the thermostat, put in the new one, replace the gasket, put the housing back, top up the system.

remove the knob or slide the rubber boot up the shifter. there are 4 screws under the floor mat that hold the boot in place. after the boot you should see four more bolts holding the shifter in place, they are usually 10mm socket. remove them and remove shifter from the top of trans.

You are right. They usually put locktight on at the factory. take care not to break it, but it is hard not to. Try a rag around the knob and a good set of vise grips or channel locks. Good Luck

Shifter knob broke and pulled up on 2004 Lincoln Aviator

Same problem. $800 quote from Dealer for a small plastic part that broke because of terrible design. Nice work Ford. They should be ashamed.

I have a 2004 ford ranger. Wipers not functioning properly

you would have to remove the plastic cover from the steering column, and then replace the turn signal assembly. should only be a couple screws and a few electrical plugs. make sure you disconnect the negative(-) battery terminal untill you are done with the repair.

Shifter knob removal

the shift knob is glued and pressed on, the best way to remove it intact is to heat the knob with a heat gun and pull straight up with a lot of force, please be very careful because when the knob finally releases there is very good chance that you can hit yourself in the face, if the knob is not to be used again you cut a **** up the side with a dremal tool,
