Auto Shift Linkage Adjustment
I recently started having the problem where my 95 F150 4X4 Auto E40D won't start in park. I had to shift it into neutral and it would fire right up. After about a week I noticed it would shift correctly and felt sluggish like it was in too high a gear. So I did a little reading and figured it was the MLPS/TR Sensor/Neutral Safety Switch was the problem. So I ordered a new Motorcraft part. It looks exactly like the old one, pins and everything. I put the truck in neutral, lined up the lines and tried to put the metal control arm back on. It didn't line up. Perhaps that was the problem all along. I'm assuming the control arm has to fall into place with no pressure front or back correct? How do I adjust it? At the steering column in the truck or at the transmission? I looked at the transmission end and I didn't see a way to adjust it.
