1997 Mercury Mountaineer
My 1997 Mercury Mountaineer has 165K miles and has been pretty much trouble free. Last week I spent a couple of hundred dollars to get a cam position sensor replaced and now I have another "check engine" problem. Showed a check engine light this morning and I had it checked at Autozone. They showed it to be a transmission Range Sensor problem but have no information on sensor location and replacement sensors. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Oily

Thanks for the quick replies, especially on a holiday weekend! Sorry that I did not give more complete information on the initial posting. The Mountaineer is a 2WD vehicle with a 5.0L V8 engine. The automatic transmission is a Model 4R70W (I think) with overdrive. Everything seems to operating normally except for the check engine light.
