Hi Micheal..I had the speed sensor replaced and it seemed to work, then would not go into 4th gear..my mechanic (thank God for honest ones), took the valve body apart and cleaned it!..car shifts like a dream...If this had been a major tranny shop, I am pretty sure, they would have said replace the valve bodies...$2000 later, I may be driving!!..haha..moral to the story?..go to a small shop...they work harder and fix things, rather than a Big Boy shop that quotes replacement or re-built!..Got the car up and repaired for $600.00..unlike major trans shop that quoted $3500!!

In addition..there is a turbine speed sensor attached to the tranny..but hard to find..ABS speed sensors for each wheel is common!
