No, they are not the same. 4x4 models have a mount for the transfer case, whereas 2WD models have a flange to connect the driveshaft.

Your truck should not have a steering column lock, so you should be able to leave the key fob out of the ignition.

In the version of the 2014 owner's manual that I have, step 12 of the...

I don't think your particular issue was caused by a shifter (or trans) problem, especially if there were no faults set.

My guess would be that your engine stumbled. The TCM monitors engine speed,...

Hmmm... if they've already quicklearned it, then that won't help. If the TCC is completely unlocking, then a 400 RPM rise would not be unusual. But I don't think it should fully unlock for a normal...

You can't clear the DTCs without a scan tool, but simply turning the engine off and restarting it should change the P0740 code to "stored" (from "active") and re-enable your TCC operation. So if...

P0740 is Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) Out of Range, and typically indicates that the TCC could not pull in (to the desired slip), even at full duty cycle. The cause is usually either a bad TCC...

The shift "flare" complaint (due to TCC partial unlock) was on 2013 trucks. 2014 trucks already have the "fix" that reduced the amount of "flare." So to my knowledge there is no further update (for...

Well, it appears that 2010 and 2012 engines used the same PCM (hardware), so you are in luck there at least. I am not an engine expert, so I don't know what all might be incompatible. I do know...

Looks like this is a no-go. The transfer case input gear mates directly with the output shaft from the transmission (there is no intermediate shaft within the 4x4 adapter). The 66RFE output shaft...

If no CEL and no fault codes, I wouldn't be too concerned. Maybe it just unlocked the converter while climbing the grade. Could have also kicked on (or kicked up) the cooling fan, based on trans...

Oooh boy! You may be opening up a can of worms. I need to check the details for sure, but I'm thinking the output shaft spline (that connects to the transfer case) may be larger than on the 545RFE....

There are often different editions, as errors are corrected (or perhaps, in this case, introduced!). I have a copy of the 5th edition manual and it does not callout 6- vs 8-speeds, so I suspect that...

105 in-lbs is indeed the spec for pan bolt torque. If someone broke the heads off, I suspect that would be when trying to remove them (if the bolts were corroded). 105 in-lbs should not be enough...

The 2013 owner's manual SHOULD say "6-speed automatic only" when it talks about changing the fluid and filter. Sorry that they apparently didn't add that note (causing you and others confusion).

The key is the P0888 code. That indicates "Trans Relay Always Off". This means you got no 12V power feed to the trans, after the PCM commanded the trans relay (that supplies that power) to close. ...

How much fluid you get out depends on how long you let it drain. With the filters out, the oil will drain slowly from the converter, so the longer you leave it, the more you get out. I've found...

Don't bother. Shifting the T/case to Neutral is more complicated than using the MPR (and it requires you to start the engine!).
