Could be a bad transmission. Check your fluid level and color.

It well could be. By chance, do you have any warning lights on? What makes you think that it's the speed sensor?

It's mounted on the transmission. It's NAPA part number TSS203. There's also a vehicle speed sensor that mounts at the wheel. It's part number is VSS239. The first number is referred to as a transmission speed sensor. HTH. - Jim

Is your check engine light on? If so that will tell us which sensor you need. HTH. -Jim

My guess is that it's the wheel mounted sensor. Since the transmission isn't shifting it sounds to me like the computer doesn't know the truck is moving. Hence the speedometer not registering. HTH. -Jim
