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.

SOURCE: i cannot find the transmission speed

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.

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?

1999 Ford Taurus SE cruise control


If you turn the key on and the check engine light comes on then its not blown. If you start the car the light should go off within a few seconds. This desnt mean a code is not stored in memory. All it means is the problem may not of been seen twice in order for the light to stay on. You will need a data scanner to see whats going on with all your sensors. Its the only way to diagnose this. Also if you have a vacuum leak on the engine like a gasket leaking or a vacuum line not hooked up the cruise will be a problem. It could be a small crack in a vacuum line that only opens under certain conditions.

When in drive my taurus rpms continue to increase seems as if its not changeing gears


is your top speed around 10-15mph? then your transmission isnt shifting. You need to have your fluid level checked first to make sure its not low or overfull. The adjust accordingly. If that doesnt fix it then you could have a speed sensor problem with the transmission or internal transmission problems.

96 taurus will not drive. pls HELP


1st thing to do is check the automatic trans fluid level, if it is full (check hot only!) then the trans clutches have fried and the trans will have to be replaced or torn down and repaired.
