the new range sensor should have 2 small dots on it. they line up when the truck is in neutral. If it is in park, or any other gear, they will not line up.

you don't have to. Bolt it to the trans, but leave it loose. Put the truck in Neutral, then go under the truck, and align the marks. At that point tighten the range sensor and test it out!

Yes-put the truck in neutral, unbolt the switch. Put the new switch on, and line up the 2 dots. Then tighten the switch-its very easy! good luck.

and its called a range sensor.
