Question about 1998 Mercury Sable
My Vehicle started acting funny as i was on the freeway, it wouldnt shift into a higher gear and kicked out of gear a couple of times, the speedo droped to 0 jumping to 10 now and again then back to 0. I replaced the VSS with one i got from ford (exact match) and vehicle still wont register speedo and shifts randomly into next gear. I removed the Sensor and checked the driven gear to see if it was still intact and it was. the gauges are analog not digital and its a AX4N tranny.I dont understand whats going on could it be a bad sensor i got from the dealer? Please Help
Could be one of three things 1) could be a bad sensor 2) could be a wiring concern 3) could be a computer concern

inspect the throttle valve control rod. there could be a small part that has worn out, usually made of plastic and the size of a dime. if this part is missing out worn out it will make the trans shift at the wrong time. it happened to my lincoln once and i thought the trans was going out.
