OK, got the input speed sensor for my 2001 santa fe with the 2.7 v6 engine. Removed the air box and thought I was removing the speed sensor but when I disconnected the wire the part was the OUTPUT speed sensor. Not having enough time to hunt anymore I was hoping someone could send me in a more exact location of the part. Thanks in advance.

1997 Dodge 5.9L Diesel automatic. Hunts trying to go into OD or trans lock. Seems to work better in hot weather after about 5 miles at highway speed. Checked TPS. It is well within specs at 1.017 idle and 3.7v at full throttle. Tested voltage response from black to orange. Hunts around 40 mph, where it is supposed to shift, I think.

However as you drive for a mile or so and come to slow down the engine dies to a extremely rough and lumpy running - barely above a stall. Pressing the accelorator produces no revs and the engine ''hunts'' firing only on a one or two cylinders. Eventually the car will start again and as long as the revs are kept high it will drive again, although when the revs go lower the engine dies aga

1992 maxima. 2 or 3 times a day the car acts as if it is being shut down and restarted very quickly, duration appears to be less than a second, multiple times if I kept pressure on the gas pedal.

My 1998 Series 1 Discovery drives ok but when hot at idle speed the revs hunt and the engine stops. It always starts immediately. I tried changing the air flow meter but no change.
