If the fluid was brown or gray when you changed it, I am afraid you are a little too late and have already sustained internal trans damage.

Where is the vss on a 1999 mercury cougar


The speed sensor for the speedometer should be in the side of the transmission.
The only thing you would see from the outside is the wiring harness plug.

YOUR RANGE SENSOR IS BAD! IT WILL BE A BLACK BOX LOCATED ON TOP OF THE TRANSMISSION! THERE WILL BE A NUT ON TOP OF IT, AND A PLUG GOING INTO THE SIDE OF IT! IT TELLS THE COMPUTER WHAT GEAR YOUR IN, SO THE COMPUTER CAN COMPENSATE FOR THE SPEED AND TELL THE TRANSMISSION TO SHIFT!

Both the transmission input speed sensor and output speed sensor are located on the front of your transmission, below the battery. You may have to remove your air cleaner assembly to get a good look at them.

Trany want shift takes off in high speedodemeter dont work what do i do want shift up or down


Hard to understand your English, but sounds like you have a 'speed sensor' issue. They are used by the transmission and speedometer to determine when to shift and display the speed.

A dealer/mechanic can diagnose what sensor needs replaced.

Most likely your speed sensors are bad, this causes the transmission to seem like its "stuck" in second gear or in "limp" mode. I can also be your TCM (transmission control module). But from your description, it's most likely the speed sensors located on the top of the transmission. Make sure you replace them with an exact replacement are they are not interchangeable.
Hope this helps.
