Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
When going 70 rpms is at 4000 please help i think its the speed sensor or some thing like that but where do i look or start the light want come on till i run it for like 10 mins when it heats up
Yes the code is for the speed sensor mounted to the side of the transmission. The sensor takes the place of the speedometer cable.
You can look up the part online for a visual. The sensor would need to be tested as it could be something else causing the problem.

your looking for the turbine speed sensor a.k.a transmission speed sensor and not the vechile spees sensor correct? they are two different sensors! the transmission speed sensor is on the side of the transmission facing the side of the car around 11 o'clock in relation to the output shaft witch is where the cv axle goes in! if it is the vechile speed sensonr then it is on top of the transmission tail house for the other output shaft and the other cv goes too. if you follow the transmisssion dip stick down to the transmission it is in that area! good luck

Your problem is the speed sensor. The VSS (vehicle speed sensor)
is located on the right side of the transaxle, near where the right side axle shaft
connects to. To access this part is pretty tricky, if you are inexperienced. There
is an aluminum foil covered shield around the wiring connector. You will need to
remove the shield to gain access. You may even have a damaged wiring
connector, that is causing the problem due to the close proximity of this part to
the catalytic converter. If you want to purchase this part from the Ford dealer,
ask the parts counter person for the "basic" part number 9E731. Hope this helps.

it should be located under the car on the tansmission gearbox but it is covered by a Sheild and will be hard to see.
Here is a clipping from a web forum that explains how to remove and reinstall a speed sensor ina 94 Taurus ....

Just a couple of things to check if you haven't compare the smell and apearance of the tranmission oil to so new, if it looks dark and smell burned you probably have a bad transmision, clutches or burned up. Does it whine or make any noise? a stopped up filter will do this. also is it full when warm on the dip tick runniing in park?
