I appreciate the follow-up reply, Moose. Particularly points 3 and 4 where you offered other means of assistance you could provide in the event your first answer was not what I was looking for.I would like to take you up on the offer of uploading repair guides, but am not sure it would be helpful due to not knowing for certain the Neutral Switch is the problem and not having an OBD II scan tool to check the codes for confirmation. I wouldn't mind purchasing an OBD II if there was a reasonable chance I could perform the repair myself, but I have very little experience and knowledge when it comes to repairing vehicles. I've only done the basics of changing my oil, air filters, batteries
, flat tires, windshield wipers and checking/topping off fluids. Do you think replacing the Neutral Switch myself is still an option considering my inexperience?As for finding a repair facility, I would be interested in any help you could offer but I've been in contact with the dealership this truck was purchased from(Stanton Tx). I would rather not pay for the towing to get the truck there but I may not have another option. Also while talking to the technician at this dealership, he suspects the Transmission Control Module based on the description I gave him via email(largely the same as my original post here). Due you think his assessment is also plausible?So I guess there are 3 main points in all:1. Repair guides may help, but am not experienced in vehicle repair.
2. Would you advise purchasing an OBD II scan tool to get the error code? Would it be within reason that I could make the repair despite my inexperience?
3. Could it also be a problem with the Transmission Control Module? If so, would it be within reason that I could make this repair?I appreciate any help you can provide and will be extremely(and pleasantly) surprised if I'm able to avoid towing the vehicle to the dealership for repairs, but I will happily rate you 5 stars even if this is the outcome as I'm just expecting exper insight, not a magical cure for my truck's problem.Thank you,Rob
