The starter is located under the engine on the back at the bottom. You can got ot Auto Zone and look there to get step by step instructions on how to fix this.
Yea that sucks if it was just temp issue it would be a easy fix but if you say its not the vacum or temp. selector than its in the control box its self and the dash will have to come out some in order to gain access in the box it sounds like the door in the box broke or the clip broke. Sorry theres no cheap way to fix this problem I have seen around 1,000 to fix it.
Well first of all un hook the battery cables. Take the belt of around the alt. and unblolt it from the engine,then if it has a removable pulley remove it form the alt. Then put it back on the new alt. and follow the steps in reverse,or go to Auto Zone.com and sighn up for there free online service books its free and it will show you step by step also haw to remove and install a alt.
I would take it to a shop and let them scan for codes,just because there is not a code does not mean anything, in order to log a code the sensor or what ever it mey be has to fall below or go above what ever the set paramater is in the ecm program. If it was me and I thought is was a code I would hook up a computer to it and test drive it to see live data on the engine and trans., Now there has been several tourqe converter failures with these Ford Super Dutys I have replaced several of them in our field service trucks here at Cat. and some trans. to thats why I say to look at some live data first if you think it maybe a sensor.One more thing is there any rattleing form the trans. when idling or in gear with your foot on the brake.
Yes in my opinion thats way to much for labor,now if that price included a starter and labor thats not a bad price but just for labor, I would find some where else thats to high.
