Doktor, there are some really strong magnets available on the market. Would it be a good idea to place a magnet on the bottom of the transmission pan?

Where is the TMC located and is it expensive to replace? Can it be done without the use of expensive equipment?

Don't know exactly what it will do, but I'm pretty sure it won't do much with an '02.

I don't think there is a Doktor in the house. I don't think he has posted here for a while now. He might be out on the road.

Doc said he was about to be on the road again, going up country a week or two ago!

You could email the Doktor or post in the yahoo sprintervan forum; he's looking at that one.

The TCM is under the driver's seat. Don't know about how expensive it is, but it might need to be initialized or "taught" about your van by the DRB-III or equal. Been so long ago and I was so green at the time that I can't remember for sure what the tech did when he replaced mine, but I'm pretty sure he had the DRB-III equivalent system connected at the time.

This is what the '03 service manual says about the subject:

"STANDARD PROCEDURE - TCM ADAPTATION
The adaptation procedure requires the use of the
DRBIIIt scan tool. This program allows the electronic
transmission system to re-calibrate itself. This
will provide the proper baseline transmission operation.
The adaptation procedure should be performed
if any of the following procedures are performed:
Transmission Assembly Replacement
Transmission Control Module Replacement
Clutch Plate and/or Seal Replacement
Electrohydraulic Unit Replacement or Recondition
(1) With the DRBIIIt, reset the Transmission
adaptives. Resetting the adaptives will set the adaptives
to factory settings.
NOTE: Perform the Coast Down Adaptations first.
The Transmission Temperature must be greater
than 60C (140F) and less than 70C (158F). Failure
to stay within these temperature ranges will
void the procedure.
(2) Drive the vehicle until the transmission temperature
is in the specified range.
(3) Perform 4 to 5 coast downs from 5th to 4th
gear and then 4th to 3rd gear.
NOTE: For Upshift adaptation, the Transmission
temperature must be greater than 60C (140F) and
less than 100C (212F). Failure to stay within these
temperature ranges will void this procedure.
(4) From a stop, moderately accelerate the vehicle
and obtain all forward gear ranges while keeping the
Engine RPM below 1800 RPM. Repeat this procedure
4 to 5 times.
(5) Obtaining 5th gear may be difficult at 1800
RPM. Allow the transmission to shift into 5th gear at
a higher RPM then lower the RPM to 1800 and perform
manual shifts between 4th and 5th gears using
the shift lever.
(6) The TCM will store the adaptives every 10
minutes. After completion of the adaptation procedure
make sure the vehicle stays running for at least
10 minutes.
(7) It is possible to manually store the adaptives
under the 10 minute time frame using the DRBIIIt
Store Adaptives procedure."

I went out last night and crawled under our '06 Sprinter looking (and feeling on the top, where I couldn't see) for that sensor - I couldn't find anything anywhere on the transmission (other than the connector to valvebody on the passenger side of the tranny) - except for a plug and wire going into the case, near the front of the bellhousing, on top - but I'm fairly sure that that might be the crankshaft position sensor because I think it actually was entering the rear of the engine block ......... not totally positive though .....

In the parts manual, the section that the item is list in is "Sensors, Drivetrain" (no guarantee it's even in the transmission) ........ so then I rolled the creeper back to the rear axle and had a look around there ..... again, nothing.

Here's a novel thought - why not call and ask the dealer where you bought the part from where it's located ?

Seems to me, considering you bought a fairly expensive part from them, they ought to be able to pony up that info .........

BTW, if you find up, please check back and let us all know (I hate mysteries )
