My 2000 taurus would stay in first gear it would not shift and at the same time the speedomiter would not move even when driving in first gear on the internet they say it the transmission speed sensor when i look for parts it shows two parts an input and output part on looks like some kind of wireing and the other looks like a sensor thats bolts into the top of the transmission. so what do you think guys

Where can I find a buy a transmission range sensor for my 2002 Dodge Neon SE 4cylinder engine, automatic transmission? I went to AutoZone recently and they said the only sensors that relate to my car are the input and output speed sensors. Is this correct, or is there a transmission range sensor within the valve body of the transmission of my 2002 dodge neon? And if so, where can I buy this sensor? because apparently Autozone may not know what I'm asking for? My check engine code was P0705.


The transmission range sensor is located on the top of the valve body inside the trans axle.It can only be serviced by removing the valve body.Some of these parts can only be obtained at the dealer ship.You could check other parts stores and if they ... Dodge Neon

Am I looking for a faulty input/output sensor or output shaft speed sensor? I'd hate to start replacing sensors for no good re

My 2005 Lincoln Ls is turning out to be a mechanics worst nightmare. Early last year the car stopped shifting properly became real jerky. The first mechanic thought it was the transmission, so I bought the rebuild kit. Turned out it wasn't the transmission. I also bought a new throttle body and output shaft sensors and I think tps sensors. The most recent mechanic also believed it was the transmission, he replaced my transmission with that of a 2006 Mustang. No difference. When I went to pick up

Have a 2004 range rover with p122b code output speed sensor. Replaced sensor and checked wiring in transmission and going to control unit. Did a transmission service, flush and filter. You can drive all day and nothing will happen or you drive for 10 minutes and it goes in to transmission fail safe mode.

I have a 93 Nissan Altima (AT transmission) and while driving my car....sometimes the speed ometer stays on "0" and the RPM goes up while I have my foot on the gas and it sounds like it is stuck in first gear. Then after a minute or so it will shift over and the speed ometer will go to normal and you can hear the gear switch over & the car will also **** a little while it goes into the next gear. Does this sound like it needs a new transmission?

1999 Mercury Cougar with automatic transmission, car was running fine, then it wanted to shift while driving, and the speedometer dropped to 0, with jerky motions. Same thing 3 years ago and dealer said they replaced the instrument cluster for $700. Doing research, doesn't look like that could have been the problem. Can you tell me what to look for?
