Hi...
If the speed sensor Not work on a Automatic Transmission.
The over drive will not work.
The over drive is a SENSOR Located inside of the Transmission.
On vehicles with 3.0 liters.
On vehicles with 3.3 0r 3.8 liters, Is Part of the selenoid pack.
But if you have a 3.3 or 3.8 Liters.
Most cases the transmission will not go up shifting.
it will Stay on 1st or 3r.

If your van is a 3.0 liter , I will recomend replace the speed sensor.
Located At Right side of the Trans. on the firewall side.

if you have 3.3 or 3.8 liters.
I recomend replace the Input and Output shaft Speed sensor.
Located at left side of the Transmission. Behind the Selenoid Pack.

The first step I recomend Is get the Vehicle scaned with a Diagnostic scan tool.
To know exactly what is the problem.
Is there some autoparts That do scan on vehicles with no charge
Just a Complementary service.
Advance autoparts, Autozone autoparts, Pepboy's Autoparts.
And some Napa Autoparts.

OK. I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya....

Shift in and out of overdrive. Is that's cause by bad wheel bearing and speed sensors?


Depends on the vehicle. Some go off the wheel sensors. Some have the speed senor on the transmission. Year make and model helps.

What is the o/d button on top of automatic gear stick for please


Over Drive..... Generally speaking, overdrive (OD) is the highest gear in the transmission. Overdrive allows the engine to operate at a lower rpm for a given road speed. This allows the vehicle to achieve better fuel efficiency, and often quieter operation on the highway. When it is switched on, an automatic transmission can shift into overdrive mode after a certain speed is reached (usually 70+ km/h [43+ mph] depending on the load). When it is off, the automatic transmission shifting is limited to the lower gears. For an automatic transmission, it is almost always best to select overdrive and allow the transmission to control engagement of the overdrive. (It may be necessary to switch it off if the vehicle is being operated in a mountainous area or when towing a trailer.) With a manual transmission, overdrive should usually be selected when the average speed is above 70 km/h (approx. 43 mph).

Transmission seems to shift in and out of overdrive


Check the transmission fluid level. The sensor for speed may be tripping or not tripping causing the overdrive to engage or disengage at a particular speed. ---
Understanding the Hydraulic Control System The hydraulic pressure used to operate the servos comes from the main transmission oil pump. This fluid is channeled to the various servos through the shift valves. There is generally a manual shift valve, which is operated by the transmission selector lever, and a shift valve for each up shift the transmission provides.
Most automatic transmissions are electronically controlled; electrical solenoids are used to control the hydraulic fluid. The shift solenoids are regulated by an electronic control module. Shift timing is regulated through sensor feedback information provided to the electronic controller.
On older transmissions there are two pressures that control the shift valves. One is the governor pressure which is affected by vehicle speed. The other is the modulator pressure which is affected by intake manifold vacuum or throttle position. Governor pressure rises with an increase in vehicle speed, and modulator pressure rises as the throttle is opened wider. By responding to these two pressures, the shift valves cause the up shift points to be delayed with increased throttle opening to make the best use of the engine's power output.
Older transmissions also make use of an auxiliary circuit for downshifting. This circuit may be actuated by the throttle linkage, vacuum that actuates the modulator, or by a cable or solenoid. It applies pressure to the downshift surface on the shift valve or valves.
The transmission modulator also governs the line pressure, used to actuate the servos. In this way, the clutches and bands will be actuated with a force matching the torque output of the engine.

It will shift out of overdrive upon increasing throttle , pulling hills and so on. Your overdrive probably kicks in around 35 to 45mph and kicks back out as you increase throttle. Electrically controled speed sensor to control the response. Overwise the engine would bog down to a stall. Over drive is just that. It changes the gearing ratio to over drive meaning less then final gear 4 to 1 down to 4 to 3 etc more direct drive ratio to lessen consumtion of fuel with less stress on engine. Have shift speed sensor adjusted. Don't drive in overdrive in city if most driving is under 45mph

not an oxygen sensor



vehicle speed sensor or oss is most likely cause.


Output Shaft Speed Sensor (OSS) 7H103: The output shaft speed (OSS) sensor is a magnetic pickup, located at the output shaft ring gear that sends a signal to the powertrain control module to indicate transmission output shaft speed. The powertrain control module uses this signal for torque converter clutch control, shift scheduling, used in determining EPC pressure. Symptoms: No converter engagements, harsh shifts, abnormal shift schedules. DTC: P0720, P0721 std~us~en~file=d14110a.gif~gen~ref.gif


Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) 9E731: The vehicle speed sensor is a magnetic pickup that sends a signal to the powertrain control module. This VSS signal tells the PCM vehicle speed. The PCM uses this signal to modify upshift schedules. Symptoms: Shift engagement/disengagement (hunting) on grades. DTC: P0500, P0503, P1500, P1501, P1503

Your transmission fluid contain water,thats why the colour of the fluid changed to pink.And of such the clutch is slipping causing the engine to reve up before shifting - Check transmission cooler.
