      In the middle of swapping out a bad trans on the 01 sport...

      Got the trans out.. and there appears to be a sensor on the side (circled yellow)
      [​IMG]

      However, the trans going in also from an 01 sport appears to have no sensor (circled red)
      [​IMG]

      Am I able to use the trans without plugging in that extra sensor, or is it just going to cause me problems? if I can't use it, I'm going to be parting it out...

      the old trans may have been installed used at some point. i beleive it is from a 97 model. That sensor was eliminated mid production in 97, and was deleted from the PCM on the models that did have the sensor. Somewhere on here there is a TSB that explains it, but basicly it is just an extra sensor that goes to nothing. Go ahead and install it as long as there was no connector on the trans harness.

      There was a connector... and... the wiring harness is part of the engine loom on this one, but was detachable on the one that the donor transmission came out of...

      yea, after further research i think mid production the sports got wired like an 02, car-part.com lists 2 trans options for the 01 sports and trac's, but just one for the regular explorers. i suspect you may have a 5r55s or w(not sure which came 1st anymore)

      I just had a thought, the TSB for the 97 said to splice the pins from the connector if the trans was replaced with one without the sensor, so if there is an issue maybe try that and see what happens before you part it out

      I hope I can reply here but that is the Intermediate Shaft Speed (ISS) Sensor, that comes on the late 2001 Sport / Sport Tracs the Job 2's. There was quite a few changes from the early to late 2001 Sports / Sport Tracs. If the broken trans is your original than the replacement trans will need it as well.

      The ISS is a magnetic pickup that sends planetary sun gear speed information to the powertrain control module (PCM). The ISS is mounted externally on the center of the case. The PCM uses the ISS information to aid in determining pressure requirements.
