My 94 Legend has over 200k miles but runs strong. I recently had the speed sensor changed. it shifts strong 1,2 D. BUT ......since repalcing the vvs the speed odomiter is off by 10 miles per hr and the transmition vibrates and seems unsure if it should shift when going up a slight incline at highway speeds. is it possible they installed the wrong vvs??

The speed sensor is in front of the oil filter. There is one 10mm bolt holding onto the differential and one wiring harness that needs to be unclipped. You will have two hoses coming from your power steering pump and reservoir. You need to crimp these somehow. I used some crimps from harbor freight tools made specifically to crimp hoses. Take your time. Do not force the sensor out. Just wiggle it side to side and it will pull out. Don't let anything get into the differential or you're gonna have a bad day. Installation is in reverse order. Hope that helps.
doesn't need a rebuild
try an oil change for the transmission as it indicates dirty oil and sticking balves
should have been changed at the 60000 miles mark or 120,000miles
run fault codes to check for torque converter clutch servo/ solenoid problem
hi frank just sent you an e-mail explaining the problem you are having there are a few problems that would cause the problem low fliuld level clutchs slipping low pump prussure torque converters locking clutch failing solenoids faulty but if no conversions have been done on the final drive and it was not doing this before keep it simple check the vss on a ohm meter to see if its within tolerance or just replace it with one that you know is correct for your car make sure all the connections on the sensor are making a good contact check the engines ground as the slightest resistance is all it takes but as i said if it was ok before you can can bet 99 out of 100 it is something the mechanic has done them odds are in your favour best of luck paul
No that is not likely, if the VSS was doing this the transmission would not shift correctly, I am sure the issue is with the speedometer head, they can be repaired, you don't have to buy a new one, get the phone number of an authorized repair station form your local dealer.
replace de ignition module first.. if still wont start good chances is the crank sensor is located behind the timing belt.. my 94 legend use to do the same thing until i replace the crank sensor.. and also if u can afford i will suggest u to replace the main fuel relay too... all this is after u are 100 pcnt sure that ur fuel pump is working....
