Are you sure you replaced the speed sensor in the transmission ?
You could try unplugging the sensor to see if that affects the engine speed.
It sounds like you disconnected a vac hose or a wiring harness some where. A large vac leak would cause the engine to rev high and so could a wiring problem.

Where is the speed sensor in a 1995 cutlass Ciera Oldsmobile?


It would be the wheel speed sensors that affect the brakes and not the speed sensor. There is one on each wheel that counts the axle turning. Take off the wheel and you'll see a wire going to it. That will affect your brakes/ABS. Speed sensor is usually in the top of the transmission.

Odometer is working but the speedometer is not working. I was told by someone that i need to rreplace the entire instrument panel. Is this correct. How to remove the instrument panel.


No, it is the vehicle speed sensor. This part is between 40 and 90 dollars. and is relatively easy to replace. It is located at the output shaft of the transmission.

My 1993 cutlas supreme stalls randomly while idling or driving , but restart right away


You will need to change the crank position sensor first and see if it corrects the problem. It is located behind the engine near the firewall. It's a bit tricky to get to it, you would need to rotate the engine forward then look under the exhaust manifold and under the cylinder closest to the drivers side. Use a 10 mm deep socket to loosen bolt. After replacement and it is still stalling then you will need to replace the ECM (vehicle computer). If it turns out to be the computer, go to your local junkyard to get an inexpensive replacement Click on the link below to view the CPS, it is around $22

1989 cutlass ciera transmission seems to be slipping, but one professional I talked to said the problem might be due to a defective speed sensor. Is this possible or likely, and if so where is the speed...


It isn't a speed sensor. In 1989 all GM front drives were hydraulic shift. Do you know if it is a three speed or four speed. The speed sensor in 1989 only controls the speedometer. Also can you describe the problem. Does it just slip? Only certain gears?
