In my experience, they usually last several tens of thousands of miles before crapping out or leaking. Oh well.... Maybe it's todays parts thats the problem!

Also... Installing a new one really isnt a bik deal if you have a lift.

Jack the lift up.
Drain the trans lube.
Pull the rear mount 80% of th way out.
Pull out the engine mount tube.

Remove/install the new switch.
Put everything back theway it was.

I'd say 30 minutes should do!
Do I feel like a jackass or what.... NEVER occurred to me when I had to put on the new wire harness.... I was using needle nozes, fat fingertips and choice words....Oh, well, any day that you learn something new is a day for the better... thanks for the "brainy" tip!@
