replaced it,but it did the same thing no speedometer and shifting problems.  
The Haynes Manual said the two wire sensor one should have1.5 volts with the

You need the 1.65 volts for the sensor to respond correctly. It seems that you may a bare wire. Follow the wiring back and check for any cracks or rubbing in the wires.

We checked it back to the fuse panel under the dash, it is still registering .64 volts, but we are still looking. Thank ,you

It was hesitating and ideling a little off. So I took it in. They did a tune up and changed the manifold gasket. I left and it was still doing the same thing. Now they think it is that sensor
