Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

I have a 98 Mountaineer and I'm having trouble

I have a 98 Mountaineer AWD and I'm having trouble shifting it to park. The arrow doesn't align properly with the P,R,N,D,2 and 1. I'm guessing shift linkage? If so, How do I adjust this?

Adjustment is best left to the Garage as if you muck it up you will not be able to select park.

There is an adjustment on the gearbox.

My 1998 mercury mountaineer wont shift out of park


Could be the brake switch, or the shift lock solenoid.
You should be able to shift out of park by turning the key to unlock the shifter but all the way to the on position. Make sure the parking brake is set first.

2006 Mountaineer 4x4 light on awd stuck.


Have a shop diagnose the problem if you
have not purchased the factory diagnostic
manuals from Helm.Com
Don't know why you would think fluid change on
any part of the vehicle would do a thing
Have you not checked for codes
That is always the first thing you do even
without a MIL lamp on.

The parking light estay in reverse ,when is on parking and dont start the engine


Your shift indicator is out of alignment or your shift linkage is out of adjustment. If you have the shift lever all the way up and are sure it has locked into park try shifting to Neutral and see if you can start it in neutral. If it starts this is a simple adjustment. if it doesn't you will need to replace the neutral safety switch or have the TCM repaired at a transmission shop.

You need to replace either the vehicle speed sensor depending on your mountaineer it could have two, or transmission ranger sensor.

Od light blinking sometimes on a 98 mountaineer awd


It means that your transmission is going to be having some problems. When mine did it in my van, the only thing the owners manual said about it was take it to the dealership for servicing.
