What is the altitude range that you should intercept the LOC for a full instrument landing??? What are your experiences with the ILS in FS2002 and any insightful ideas to sharpen the quality of landing would be greatly appreciate. Thanks in advance for your time and suggestions.

It depends on the airport. Check the chart. If I don't have a chart handy for that particular approach I will normally use 3000' or 2500' as I have found that is the average on ILS charts, and wait to intercept. Charts are the best, however. From your above I don't see any indication that you ARE using autopilot, but if you are, I would fly them by hand.
